AWWLogo-WhiteBackgroundStaff Reporter / June 2015

The Ajman Wastewater Treatment Plant (WTP) is set for a major expansion after Ajman Sewerage Private Company Limited (ASPCL), a successful public-private partnership between the Government of Ajman and two leading international experts, BESIX and Veolia, signed a deal aimed at expanding the treatment plant capacity by fifty percent after completion.

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 commence imminently.

Speaking during the signing ceremony, ASPCL General Manager, Christophe Ledur said that the plant upgrade would allow treating an additional 40 million liters 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. He went on to add, “By expanding the treatment plant, ASPCL will also increase the production of treated water, which has become an important water resource, and which, if utilized fully, would reduce the emirate’s reliance on borehole and desalinated seawater.”
