Xylem wins Bahrain deal

October 2014

NEW York-based water technology firm Xylem has signed a $7.3-million contract with Bahrain’s Ministry of Works to upgrade a wastewater treatment facility in Manama.

Xylem will design, install and commission an expansion and upgrade of the existing Wedeco ozone systems at the Tubli Water Pollution Control Centre (TWPCC).

After the upgrade, likely to happen by the end of 2015, the Tubli plant will be the largest ozone wastewater treatment plant in the Middle East. 

Capacity of the new wastewater treatment facility will increase from 200,000 to 240,000 cu m per day.

The enhanced wastewater reuse capacity is necessary for irrigation purposes in the area and will benefit the local agriculture and horticulture sectors in particular, said a senior official. 

“Increased wastewater reuse capability has the potential to bring wide-ranging benefits to communities and businesses in the Middle East,” explained Andre Dhawan, president of Xylem Europe, the Middle East, India and Africa (EMEIA).

“This is a meaningful win for Xylem in the Middle East and a great opportunity for us to demonstrate our expertise in solving local complex water challenges,” he added.

The Ministry of Works is the construction arm of the Bahraini government and provides infrastructure in accordance with the legal frameworks set out in the National Strategic Master Plan for Bahrain, outlook 2030.

Xylem is a leading global water technology provider, enabling customers to transport, treat, test and efficiently use water in public utility, residential and commercial building services, industrial and agricultural settings. The company does business in more than 150 countries through a number of market-leading product brands and offers broad applications expertise.
