Tubli WWTP Upgrade on Track

A project to increase the processing of sewage at the Tubli Waste Water Treatment Plant is getting closer to completion, according to Works, Municipalities Affairs and Urban Planning Minister Essam Khalaf.


The work on the second phase of the project to improve the efficiency of the biological processing of sewage at the Tubli Centre using the high-tech Hapex system is on track for completion within the second quarter of this year.


The minister was speaking during a visit to the plant alongside Under-Secretary of Works Ahmed Al Khayat, assistant under-secretary for sanitation Ebrahim Al Hawaj, director of the sanitation planning and projects department Fathi Al Farea and a number of engineers working on the currently 85 per cent complete project.


“The project is one of the important schemes to improve infrastructure and sewerage system in Bahrain by transforming the 10 traditional tubs at Tubli receiving plant for sewage flows into Hapex ventilation basins,” said Mr Khalaf.


“It is aimed at improving bilateral water efficiency and thus increasing the production of triple treated water at the Tubli Waste Water Treatment Plant for use in beautification and forestation projects, by linking them to a ventilator to treat 120,000 cubic metres a day of sewage.


“With the installation of 42 devices to accelerate the bilateral processing and a pumping station, along with other supplements of the existing station, the project will improve the capacity of the plant to produce water treatment of up to 200,000 cubic metres per day, which will have a positive impact on the surrounding environment,” he said.


The minister praised the team’s efforts and commitment to safety standards, with more than 200,000 working hours without injuries so far.
