Dubai water company inks Qatar sewerage contract
Corodex to build vacuum network at world's largest aluminium smelter
Corodex Electromechanic has won a contract to build a vacuum sewerage system for the world’s largest aluminium smelter, based in Qatar.
The project involves the design, supply and supervision of installation of the system, which has been supplied by Roediger Vacuum Gmbh. When complete the sewerage network will consist of approximately 63 Z75 vacuum chambers, all connected with one central vacuum station, with a five-kilometre long vacuum sewer line.
Corodex says the system proposed for the Qatalum smelter is both environmentally friendly, odour-free and involves no exfiltration of infiltration of wastewater into the surrounding area. In addition, the firm claims that the network can be built twice as quickly as traditional gravity sewerage systems, and at a lesser cost.
“This project follows the highest construction standards set by Qatalum. We have used our special built vacuum chambers; Z75 for heavy traffic load” said Mohanned Awad, director of business development, Concorde-Corodex Group.
“The flexibility of the system makes it possible to integrate it with other underground utilities and construct them simultaneously, saving time and cost for all” he added.
Corodex has already installed similar systems on Palm Jumeirah and Palm Deira, and at other locations in the Middle East.
