Ajman Sewerage (Private) Company Limited (ASPCL) has completed around AED 100 million worth of projects in 2017 for the expansion of the treatment plant in Ajman. The amount is in addition to the current properties being connected alongside the areas of Al Safia and Al Ragayeb.

Established through a long-term concession agreement, the company was formed by the Government of Ajman. Currently, Ajman Sewerage’s Wastewater Treatment Plant (WWTP) collects, treats and delivers more than 100,000m3 of wastewater everyday to the city of Ajman.

A year in review

Currently, ASPCL is executing 8 different projects simultaneously, including the Wastewater Treatment Plant (WWTP), network expansions and capacity upgrade works in the areas of Al Jurf Industrial Zones 1 & 3, Al Jurf 2 Commercial and residential areas such as Al Safia and Al Ragayeb. Split into two systems, the Wastewater Treatment Plant (WWTP) is composed by WWTP Phase 1 and WWTP Phase 2, which both utilise similar processes but uses distinct technologies to treat the wastewater.

At the end of 2017, Ajman Sewerage had connected around 140,000 units in Ajman to the sewerage system, with an estimated 400,000 people serviced. In addition, the completed construction of sewerage network systems such as Al Regayeb and Al Safia will enable the company to increase overall connections to 155,000 units  next year.

Moving forward

In the next three years, Ajman Sewerage’s upcoming projects are estimated to be around AED 505 million. These projects include the construction of Ajman Industrial 2, Al Humaidiya South and sewerage network systems in Al Rawdha, Al Mowaihat and Al Jurf Industrial Area Zone 2.

Dedicated to the community

Although nuisance odours are unavoidable when collecting, conveying, treating and disposing wastewater, Ajman Sewerage consistently ensures minimal impact of odour on its customers though the use of biological odour control units. These units, as well as activated carbon units, collect the odours at the various treatment plants and treat them.

In addition, the company regularly engages in information campaigns to advise their customers of ways to safely dispose of sewerage. In an effort to contribute to an eco-friendly environment, Ajman Sewerage constantly invests in the latest sewer cleaning technology and cleans the 300km long sewerage network in the UAE every 3 years.

To provide ease of service for its customers, the company provides various services such as Move-in, Move-out, NOC requests and bill payments through its website and its mobile app. Ajman Sewerage has also signed partnerships with UAE banks such as Ajman Bank, Commercial Bank of Dubai, Emirates NBD and other providers like MBME, NT Payments, Al Ansari and Currency Exchange to facilitate the easy payment of sewerage bills. Working with Ajman Municipality, the company is developing an electronic contract authentication system (Tasdeeq), which will offer further convenient service provision.

Moving forward, Ajman Sewerage has a considerable amount of expansion on the horizon, which will continue to grow along with their active endeavour to enhance the customer experience for the community of Ajman.
