Metito scoops water treatment award
Best Waste Water Treatment Project 2011 goes to Metito
Metito has scooped the 2011 Best Waste Water Treatment Project award for its Yas Island project which involved constructing, executing and putting into operation new sewage treatment works to serve the Formula One Abu Dhabi Grand Prix track.
The project will utilise a Membrane Bioreactor process which produces high quality effluent that can be safely used in open irrigation with no health hazard.
Bassem Halabi, Group Business Development Director – Metito Overseas Ltd said; “To be recognised by your industry with an award is always an honor and is a fitting tribute to the skills, experience and hard work exerted by our employees. The Yas Island development is now known around the world and we are glad to have played our part in such a dynamic and exciting project”.
The scope of the sewage treatment works includes treatment facilities split into three equal streams of 19,000m3/day each.
The plant will also serve Warner Brothers Movie World, Ferrari World, hotels including Yas Marina, a water park and the Yas Mall. In addition, a parkland golf course, marinas, a polo club, apartments, villas, as well as food and beverage outlets will also benefit from the project.
