Zawya LogoStaff Reporter / 13 May 2015

Ajman Wastewater Treatment Plant is set for a major expansion after Ajman Sewerage Private Company Limited (ASPCL), Besixand Veolia signed a deal to boost the facility’s capacity by 50%.

The construction contract has been awarded to Six Construct and the upgrade works are expected to be completed before the end of 2016.

Work at the treatment plant, located in Ajman’s Jurf Industrial 1, is set to strart imminently.

Speaking during the signing ceremony, ASPCL general manager, Christophe Ledur said that the plant upgrade would allow treating an additional 40 million litres of wastewater per day.

“We continue to constantly monitor the residential and commercial property market in Ajman with the aim of ensuring that ASPCL, in close collaboration with Moalajah the operator of the Ajman sewerage system, has adequate infrastructure and capacity to collect and treat the surplus wastewater by expanding the plant’s treatment process significantly,” said Ledur.

“By expanding the treatment plant, ASPCL will also increase the production of treated water, which has become an important water resource, and which, if utilised fully, would reduce the emirate’s reliance on borehole and desalinated seawater.”

He noted the need to conserve the environment and said that ASPCL will continue to encourage usage of treated water for various domestic and industrial applications such as greenery, irrigation, landscaping, construction works, cleaning and district cooling.
