Siemens cleans up giant KSA odour-control contract
US$2 million hybrid solution nears completion at North Jeddah STP
Engineering giant Siemens has picked up one of Saudi Arabia's largest odor control deals by installing and operating the nine-piece system at the North Jeddah Sewage Treatment Plant (STP).
Valued at around US$2 million, the system was requested due to the plant's proximimity to the King Abdullah Aziz International Airport in Jeddah.
The system consists of three different technologies, including a combination of biological, chemical and activated carbon, and will be completed by the end of the year.
The hybrid solution will remove hydrogen sulphide, ammonia, amines and various other odorous compounds at various stages of filtration.
A full review of Siemens' odor control activities in Saudi Arabia - including the North Jeddah STP - has been published in this month's issue of Utilities Middle East.
