Metito expands wastewater plant in Dubai
Dubai Investment Park water treatment plant expansion costs $12m
Metito has completed a US$12 million expansion on its existing build-operate-transfer (BOT) wastewater treatment project at Dubai Investment Park.
The recently completed expansion of the project takes the total installed capacity to 31,000m3/day. Future expansions in the Park are expected to bring the total capacity to 80,000m3/day.
The project was the first of its kind in GCC when it was commenced back in 1999.
Services provided by Metito Utilities include the financing, design, supply, installation, commissioning, operation, maintenance and the eventual transfer of the wastewater treatment plant.
The plant is modular in design, allowing for the addition of phases based on continuous growth of DIP. The entire project will service 23 square kilometers and a population of 350,000 when completed.
Dubai Investments Park (DIP) is a mixed use development offering facilities and services for manufacturing, housing, education, research and development, distribution and logistics sectors.
Metito treats 792m gallons of wastewater every day and has installed over 2,000 desalination plants across the ME, Africa, Asia and Europe.
