Clean Water for Algeria

Aug 20 2008 Read 2202 Times

At the beginning of December 2007, WABAG obtained an order from the Algerian state water authority, Wilaya de Bordj Bou Arreridj (DHW BBA), relating to the extension of the Ain Zada municipal drinking water plant. A total of around EUR 6 million is to be invested in this project.
The order involves the enlargement of the existing facility, which was also supplied by WABAG in 1988. Capacity is to be raised from its current level of 78,000 m3/d to 104,000 m3/d. Raw river water is to be turned into high quality drinking water using classic methods, the most
important of which are oxidation, flocculation, sedimentation, filtration and disinfection.
WABAG will be responsible for the design, engineering, supply of themechanical equipment, assembly surveillance, commissioning, training of the operational personnel and management support in the start-up phase. In addition, as the consortium leader, WABAG will undertake the
project management for the complete contract, which will be carried out in conjunction with the local company, Hydrotraitement.
The work will take 15 months, allowing the plant to become operational in the spring of 2009.
Ain Zada lies to the south of the capital city of Algiers in the densely populated northern area of the country. The commissioning of the new plant will provide over 500,000 inhabitants with access to a continuous water supply.
With the Ain Zada order, WABAG has further consolidated its excellent water and wastewater treatment market position in Algeria. In fact,
WABAG has been operating in Algeria since the beginning of the 1980s and with more than 20 plants completed, has made a major contribution to a sustained improvement in the quality of life of millions of people.
