HAYA WATER OUTLINES DIFFERENT ASPECTS OF WASTEWATER PROJECTS.
Haya Water organised an open meeting with various media channels in the sultanate on Wednesday.
The meeting was held under the patronage of Sayyid Sulaiman bin Hamoud al Busaidi, deputy secretary general of the Council of Ministers at Sundus Rotana Hotel in Muscat.
Eng Hussain bin Hassan AbdulHussain, CEO of Haya Water, discussed the importance of the wastewater projects in terms of environmental, health, economic and other aspects.
'The company seeks to achieve the programme objectives of the wastewater re-use project according to the schedule that was prepared in advance.
'This takes into consideration the urban boom and rapid population growth in Muscat and at the same time covering other governorates according to the company's approved master plan, which took into account the development resulting from the expansion of cities and the accelerated population growth, which directly affects the development of wilayats and associated remarkable cultural growth.'
On future projects, Eng AbdulHussain said Haya Water gives utmost importance to future projects, whether through long-term or short-term plans, based on studies of population density and urban development in the country. Among these projects is Seeb STP - Phase 2. 'The project is currently in the initial stages of tendering, which aims to increase the capacity of the current STP from 62,000m3 per day to 82,000m3 per day to accommodate larger amounts of wastewater to cope with urban and population development in the wilayat.
'The Ministry of Finance has approved to obtain a bank loan to finance the project,' Eng AbdulHussain said.
