Ajman Sewerage, an active partner in promoting greener, cleaner and well-developed UAE, participated in the 4th Ajman International Environment Conference, and highlighted the advantages of developing a smart sewerage infrastructure in line with its water treatment and recycling expertise.

Xavier Mathieu (Technical and Performance Manager, Ajman Sewerage) highlighted Ajman Sewerage’s core competency and specialization in wastewater collection, treatment and supply of treated water.

He said: “Over the years Ajman Sewerage and its Operator Moalajah, a BESIX-Veolia joint venture, has developed a smart sewerage infrastructure in Ajman. The wastewater network is continuously monitored through real time control and remote management, which provides numerous benefits such as optimized system coordination, increased assets capacity, power savings, and reduced sediment deposition in the sewers and pump stations.”

This successful technical case in line with Ajman’s 2021 Vision of environmental and operational excellence was presented at the event.

“Conservation, re-use and re-cycle are signs of smart cities and productive governance. Also, creating sustainable and environmentally friendly solutions that secure our present and future is the need of the hour. At Ajman Sewerage, the emphasis lies on smarter ways of dealing with water usage. Water is a very scarce resource which means that we must constantly be aware of our water use and simultaneously look for new innovative ways to increase water re-use”, added Mr. Xavier Mathieu.

Inaugurated under the patronage of HH Sheikh Humaid Bin Rashid Al Nuaimi, Member of the Supreme Council and Ruler of Ajman, the Municipality and Planning Department of Ajman organized the 4th Ajman International Environment Conference 2016 that acted as a platform for several industry experts on “Smart Cities and Green Innovation”. The much-appreciated event was held from March 2nd to 3rd at the Sheikh Zayed Center for Conferences and Exhibitions at the Ajman University of Science and Technology (AUST) in Ajman.
