De Nora joins Tubli Sewage Treatment Plant expansion

Jan. 6, 2023
The company is providing three dedicated lines of its Capital Controls ozone generators to help double the treatment plant’s daily flow capacity.

De Nora, a global provider in sustainable water treatment solutions, announced that it will join phase four of the Tubli Sewage Treatment Plant expansion, which includes one of the largest public sector ozone plants to be built in the Middle East in more than 10 years.

Launched in response to rapid population growth in the area, the project will include three dedicated lines of the company’s Capital Controls® ozone generators to accommodate increased flow of wastewater, doubling the average daily flow capacity of 200,000 m3/day (52.8 million gallons daily) to reach a full average daily flow capacity of 400,000 m3/day (105.6 million gallons daily).

“Tubli Sewage Treatment Plant Phase 4 will be the one of the largest wastewater treatment plants in the Kingdom of Bahrain,” says Giordano Buizza, De Nora Water Technologies Southwest Europe regional sales director. “We are grateful for our partners in the region who continue to trust our team with historic projects that have the potential to make a positive impact on water treatment operations around the globe. De Nora understands scarcity challenges and believes strongly in the promising role of reuse. We are honored to continue advancing the field.”

The company’s system in Tubli will generate 150 kilograms of ozone per hour to destroy and oxidize residual organic contaminants in wastewater streams to render them harmless. The effluent will then be reused for irrigation and agricultural beautification purposes throughout the Bahrain service area.

The ozone installation is part of a larger project led by WTE Wassertechnik GmbH, a leading supplier of municipal and industrial water management serving more than 20 million people in 18 countries.
