Metito announces Iraq projects worth over $10m
Company to start work on new Iraq sewage treatment projects
Water management firm Metito has announced that it has secured contracts to supply the process design for three sewage treatment plants located in South Basra. The contracts together total over $10 million, with the company covering all of the engineering requirements for the new facilities. Metito will also undertake all of the selection and supply of mechanical and electrical equipment.
Mustafa Hasan, General Manager of Metito in Jordan, Iraq and Syria, has stated that his company is “keen to work on projects such as these to help alleviate water shortages and give access to vital water supplies”. UNESCO has previously reported that water shortages in the country affect an estimated 7.6 million Iraqis.
These new projects add to the company’s portfolio of projects in Iraq, following the recent announcement of a $9 million contract to upgrade the principle Sewage Treatment Plant in Karbala.
