WTE will be responsible as general contractor in Kuwait notably for the planning and construction of a wastewater treatment plant and – together with partners – a sewerage network with pumping stations. The contract values correspond to around EUR 600 million and EUR 950 million respectively.
In Umm Al Hayman, one of the world’s largest projects is being built to treat wastewater from southern Kuwait and to supply agriculture and industry with wastewater treated to the highest standards (treated sewage effluent – ‘TSE’).
The dimensions of the project, which is being carried out by WTE as a one-stop solution, are enormous: At its heart is the wastewater treatment plant, designed for 1.7 million people – and which will even be expandable at a later date – which is part of a 450 km long network of wastewater and TSE pipelines, pumping stations and vast reservoirs.
The plant, which will also receive its own 300 kV transformer station thanks to WTE, will produce its own biogas in the course of the purification process, with which it will cover the majority of its energy requirements itself.
