Doosan wins $80mn Oman wastewater contract
Korean company to build phase 2 of Al Ansab treatment plant.
Doosan Heavy Industries and Construction of Korea has won a major contract to develop a water treatment plant in Oman.
The company signed an agreement with Haya Water, Oman's state-run wastewater treatment company, for Phase 2 of the Al Ansab water treatment plant project at the cost of KRW 90bn ($80mn).
Doosan will be responsible for equipment supply, construction, and pilot operation and complete the 50,000 tons per day project by 2017.
Separately, Doosan's British subsidiary concluded a $76mn deal for a water treatment plant on the island of Jersey. The third-phase Bellozanne wastewater processing plant project calls for building a plant capable of processing 71,000 tons of water a day by 2020.
A Doosan Heavy Industries official said: "Thanks to our relentless effort to develop water treatment technology and expand market throughout the world, we could land the deals in both Oman and England.
“Given the world's water treatment market is projected to grow to $780bn by 2018 from $600bn this year, we will aggressively pursue new projects all around the world."
