Muscat Daily - - NATION -

Haya Wa­ter said on Mon­day that it is ex­e­cut­ing sev­eral waste­water net­work projects in the Mus­cat gov­er­norate.

The pro­ject in Bausher is con­sid­ered one of the largest waste­water projects that runs from the Ham­riya round­about in Greater Mut­trah un­til Al Mouj Mus­cat. The pro­ject cov­ers the ar­eas of He­lat al Saad, Wat­tayah, Qurm, Mad­i­nat al Ilam, Mad­i­nat as Sul­tan Qa­boos (MQ), Hay al Sa­rooj, Al Khuwayr, Ghubra, Aza­iba and Aza­iba wa­ter­front.

The pro­ject com­prises the con­struc­tion of a waste­water net­work with a to­tal length of about 586km, treated waste­water dis­tri­bu­tion net­work with a to­tal length of about 90km and a fi­bre op­tic net­work of about 450km. There are nearly 12,272 res­i­den­tial units, gov­ern­men­tal and com­mer­cial prop­er­ties that were con­nected to the waste­water sys­tem un­til the end of 2016. Eng Said bin Rashid al Asmi, projects gen­eral man­ager, Haya Wa­ter, said that work on sev­eral phases of the pro­ject is be­ing ex­e­cuted par­al­lelly to meet the dead­line.

He also spoke about the Al Ansab Sewage Treat­ment Plant (STP) Phase II Ex­pan­sion Pro­ject. “The ca­pac­ity of Al Ansab STP will be in­creased to 125,000m3 per day by the end of 2017. It is also planned to in­crease the ca­pac­ity up to 140,000m3 per day by the end of 2020 af­ter the com­ple­tion of the third phase of ex­pan­sion.”

Haya Wa­ter had com­pleted the first phase in 2010 with a to­tal ca­pac­ity of 57,300m3 per day. It op­er­ates us­ing the bio-re­ac­tor mem­brane tech­nol­ogy. Al Ansab STP is con­sid­ered one of the largest STPs around the world that uses this tech­nol­ogy.

Eng Asmi added that Haya Wa­ter is cur­rently work­ing on a waste­water pro­ject in north­ern and south­ern Al Khuwayr (B3b). The pro­ject con­sists of a waste­water net­work with a to­tal length of 34km, a treated waste­water net­work with a to­tal length of 12.5km and a fi­bre op­tic net­work with a to­tal length of 39km.

This pro­ject will serve 2,650 res­i­den­tial units, gov­ern­men­tal and com­mer­cial prop­er­ties. The pro­ject will be com­pleted in the fourth quar­ter of 2018.

He said that work on the waste­water net­work and treated waste­water net­work pro­ject in MQ (B5) is un­der way and it will be com­pleted in the third quar­ter of 2017. The pro­ject con­sists of a waste­water net­work with a to­tal length of 32km, a treated waste- wa­ter net­work with a to­tal length of 5km and a fi­bre op­tic net­work with a to­tal length of 37km. This pro­ject will serve 600 res­i­den­tial units, gov­ern­men­tal and com­mer­cial prop­er­ties.

He said that Haya Wa­ter is work­ing on the Aza­iba Sea Out­fall Pro­ject too. The aim of this pro­ject is to avoid any dam­ages that may oc­cur dur­ing emer­gency in case there is ex­cess waste­water at the main pump­ing sta­tion in Aza­iba. This pro­ject is very im­por­tant since it pro­vides pro­tec­tion to en­vi­ron­ment, so­ci­ety and pub­lic and pri­vate prop­er­ties by dis­charg­ing ex­tra wa­ter into the sea in ac­cor­dance to en­vi­ron­men­tal and health stan­dards that are spec­i­fied and ap­proved by the con­cerned au­thor­i­ties. This pro­ject starts from cen­tral pump­ing sta­tion in Aza­iba con­nect­ing the sea with a to­tal length of 3.52km (350m on land and 3.17km in the sea). The pro­ject is ex­pected to be com­pleted dur­ing this year.

Eng Asmi also spoke about fu­ture projects in Bausher and said that the com­pany will work to com­plete waste­water net­works in the ar­eas of Al Ansab, Bausher, Ghala, Ghala In­dus­trial Area and South Aza­iba and Bausher Vil­lage. The pro­ject aims to con­nect 12,000 res­i­den­tial units, gov­ern­ment and com­mer­cial prop­er­ties. The pro­ject will be floated in 2018. The to­tal length of the waste­water net­work will be 140km while the to­tal length of the treated waste­water net­work will be 60km.

In ad­di­tion, one of the fu­ture projects com­prises con­nect­ing in­te­grated ser­vices to ap­prox­i­mately 1,800 res­i­den­tial units and gov­ern­ment and com­mer­cial prop­er­ties in Al Khuwayr 17/1 and 17/2 by 2020. The to­tal length of the waste­water net­work will be 66km, the to­tal length of the treated waste­water net­work will be 8km and the to­tal length of the fi­bre op­tic net­work will be 88km.

More­over, the com­pany aims to con­nect 502 res­i­den­tial units, gov­ern­ment and com­mer­cial prop­er­ties in Bausher Heights area to its waste­water net­work by 2020. The to­tal length of the waste­water net­work will be 23km, the to­tal length of the treated waste­water net­work will be 5km and the to­tal length of the fi­bre op­tic net­work is 13km.
