Major expansion plans for Ajman’s wastewater plant
The Ajman Wastewater Treatment Plant is set for a major expansion after Ajman Sewerage Private Company Limited (ASPCL), a successful public-private partnership between the Government of Ajman and two leading international experts, BESIX and Veolia, signed a deal aimed at expanding the treatment plant capacity by 50% after completion.
The construction contract has been awarded to Six Construct and the upgrade works are expected to be completed before the end of 2016. Work at the treatment plant, located in Ajman’s Jurf Industrial 1, is set to commence imminently.
Speaking during the signing ceremony, ASPCL General Manager, Christophe Ledur said that the plant upgrade would allow treating an additional 40 million litres of wastewater per day.
“We continue to constantly monitor the residential and commercial property market in Ajman with the aim of ensuring that ASPCL, in close collaboration with Moalajah the operator of the Ajman sewerage system, has adequate infrastructure and capacity to collect and treat the surplus wastewater by expanding the plant’s treatment process significantly,” said Mr. Christophe Ledur.
