Large MBR plant opens in Oman next week

Oman’s Haya Water plans next week to officially open the Al Ansab water treatment plant, which has a large membrane bioreactor (MBR) at its heart and is the main part of the Bausher Water Reuse Project.

Commenting on the forthcoming event on 19 February 2011, Haya’s CEO, Omar Al-Wahaibi, said that the current stage was the cornerstone of the water-reuse project, adding that the company was currently working on the completion of the main trunk line to connect areas from Al-Hamria Roundabout to the complete line near Al Ghubra Power & Desalination Plant.

The production capacity of the plant is about 55,000 m³/d of treated water in the first stage, which will be followed by other stages with the production capacity increasing according to requirements. Once commissioned, it will be one of the largest of its kind worldwide using MBR technology.
