Metito signs $6.8m Iraqi wastewater contract
Firm to design, build and supply equipment for treatment plant in Kufa
Metito has announced that it has signed a US $6.8 million deal with F&B Investment to design, build, and supply all mechanical and electrical equipment at a new wastewater treatment plant in Iraq’s Kufa. The project is aimed at supporting the sewer and storm water needs of Najaf Governorate, and will have a capacity of 50,000 m3/day.
The firm says that the new project will use its Turbo4bio, a new technology that “guarantees a high energy-efficient wastewater treatment process with a small footprint”. Metito reports that the design incorporates a self-cleaning capability that prevents clogging and makes it practically maintenance-free.
“The Iraqi government strives to improve the infrastructure across the country. The water and wastewater industry is growing rapidly and steadily in Iraq, reflecting the needs of the expanding urban areas and the increasing population. This is done without any compromise to the quality of deliverables required by the managing bodies, and Metito Is therefore honoured to be partnering with F&B Investment in playing a role in the sustainable development of such an important and strategic country,” said Moustafa Hasan, Metito’s general manager in Iraq, Jordan and Syria.
