Bioshaft nets Saudi Ministry of Defense contract
Wastewater treatment system to be installed at Har-Al Bateen base
BioShaft Water Technology has signed a contract that will see the company's wastewater treatment systems installed for the Ministry of Defense in Saudi Arabia.
The order is for a BioShaft Turbo Moving Bed Bioreactor (T-MBBR) for a domestic wastewater facility. BioShaft technology was specified by MODA for the treatment of a large military base at Har-Al Bateen, near the capital city of Riyadh. The plant is the first phase of a much larger facility to be tendered later in 2012. Current flow is 3.7 MGD (Million Gallon per Day), with effluent suitable for irrigation reuse.
Bashar Amin, VP of Operations BioShaft, stated, "The Anoxic/Aerobic Process is particularly suited for wastewater with moderate to high amounts of bio-degradable suspended solids and it is very economical for small industrial plant applications where traditional technologies are far too expensive and cumbersome."
In March the Californian company also won orders for an industrial wastewater system to be installed at a facility in Fredericksburg Texas, and a pilot T-MBBR industrial packaged unit for Kobelco-Eco in Kobe, Japan.
