Haya Water hands out $67.4mn contracts in Oman
Work will see upgrade of sewage networks in Muscat Governate.
Haya Water has signed two separate agreements to improve the sewerage network in Muscat Governate.
Oman Consolidated Contractors Company won the $20.7mn (OMR 8mn) contract to replace and expand the existing sewage network in Madinat Sultan Qaboos (MSQ) in the Wilayat of Baushar of the city.
Project B-5 also includes the construction of a 14.5km fiber-optic lines network, according to Oman News Agency reported. Work is expected to be completed within two years from the awarding date. Associated Consulting Engineers Company will provide consulting engineering services.
The project for package C6 of the sewage network in the Al Seeb area on the outskirts of the capital, was awarded to M/S Arab Contractors Company and National United Engineering and Construction Companies. The total cost is $46.7m (OMR18m) and Parsons International Company has designed the facilities.
Under the agreement, 65km main lines for sewage drainage will be constructed, in addition to house connections of over 98km that will benefit more than 3,500 properties.
Eng. Mohsen bin Mohammed al-Sheikh, chairman of Haya Water, said: "Haya Water is proceeding in completing the networks of the Wilayat of Baushar as soon as possible because of the urban and development expansion it witnesses, in the hope of achieving the desired objectives of these mega projects.
"A'Seeb project is also important at the level of Muscat Governorate. Once completed, this project will reduce the contamination of groundwater as it is for the houses and installations near Al Khoudh Dam."
Haya Water is going to launch its first project outside Muscat Governorate in the near future and will eventually extend services to all governorates of the Sultanate, except Dhofar.
