Biwater secures wastewater project in Aourir, Morocco
UK-based Biwater has secured a contract to design and build a new wastewater treatment plant in the city of Aourir, Morocco.
Biwater said the project is part of Morocco's plans to invest in reuse solutions, which harness wastewater for subsequent applications.
The project will feature a reuse system, which will serve over 60,000 local residents.
Biwater will carry out pre-treatment, biological treatment, tertiary treatment including disinfection, and sludge dewatering for feedwater with the help of solar drying method.
The final water will be utilised to irrigate the grounds of the adjacent golf courses and hotels.
Sahraoui Abdellah of Biwater who is responsible for studies and investments in service management of water and sanitation (RAMSA) in Greater Agadir said reuse water is a priority for the company as it considers how it can better serve the people and protect the environment in the region of Souss, including its beach resorts.
"This project will use the latest technologies and treatment processes to meet our needs for wastewater treatment; it also provides a solution to reuse treated water for watering golf courses in the resort town of Taghazout," Agadir added.
Biwater International regional director for Africa Giles Jackson said, "After the successful commissioning of a similar project in Tamuda Bay in the north of Morocco, we look forward to delivering a turn-key solution to the city of Aourir, which will provide immediate results, demonstrating the need for sustainable solutions that focus on reuse nationwide."
