Darsait sewage plant in Oman to be completed next year
According to Haya, the scope of work includes the establishment of recreational facilities in the area
Oman government’s water reuse company, Haya Water, has said that work was progressing as per schedule at its Darsait STP (sewage treatment plant) project and was due for completion by the end of next year.
Darsait STP is considered to be one of the largest and most significant projects in the region designed with the highest standards and specifications. It will cater to the residents of Wadi Kabir, Al Humriya, Ruwi, Bait Al Falaj, Darsait, Costal Darsait and Aynt areas.
The capacity of the STP in its first phase will be 37,000 cu m per day and will be increased to 50,000 during the second phase. The plant is expected to be completed during the last quarter of 2018, reported Oman Observer, citing a senior official.
The construction of the new STP is part of Haya's efforts to connect houses and other facilities with a modern wastewater system and to raise the capacity of wastewater treatment by taking advantage of the latest technologies in the field of wastewater treatment, remarked Said bin Rashid Al Asmi, general manager for projects in Haya Water.
The plant will use the membrane bio-reactor (MBR) technology, which is considered one of the best systems worldwide that produces high-quality and pollution-free treated wastewater in accordance with local and international standards and specifications, stated Al Asmi.
According to Haya, the scope of work includes the establishment of recreational facilities in the area.
Haya Water is also considering construction of two football fields and open spaces for those who wish to practice any kind of sports, said Al Asmi.
The location of these two football fields and other facilities will be on the old STP site, which will be demolished after the official opening of the new STP, he added.
