ITT Wins $32 M Contract for Treatment Works in Doha
Larsen & Toubro have awarded a $32 million contract to ITT Corporation for the Phase II extension of Qatar’s Doha South Sewage Treatment Works.
The contract covers the design and supply of an additional eight Sanitaire® sequence batch reactors (SBRs), which will increase the wastewater treatment capacity of the Doha South plant by 92 million liters per day. Also included is the addition of an ultra-filtration plant designed and supplied by ITT, which will produce a high standard of treated effluent suitable for reuse in irrigation.
“We are proud to build on the success of the first phase of the Doha South project and to continue our partnership with Larsen & Tourbro and ASHGHAL, Qatar’s public works authority,” said John Williamson, president of ITT’s Water & Wastewater group.
With Phase I operational and upon the completion of Phase II, the plant will have a total capacity to treat 187 million liters of wastewater per day. This will be the largest wastewater treatment facility using SBRs combined with ultra-filtration in the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) region.
ITT will be providing the process engineering for the entire project to Engineering, Procurement and Construction (EPC) Contractor L&T. ITT will also be providing to L&T detailed engineering support, supervision of installation and commissioning, and operation of the plant during the takeover testing period. The Phase II extension is expected to be operational by 2012.
