Samsung Engineering completes Bahrain's Muharraq STP project
Samsung Engineering, a Korean based engineering company has completed the Muharraq Sewage Treatment Plant and Sewer Conveyance System Project in Bahrain. The plant will provide clean water for Bahrain’s northeast region.
The project completion ceremony was attended by Prime Minister, Khalifa bin Salman Al Khalifa, Minister of Works, Essam, Abdullah Khalaf, and President and CEO of Samsung Engineering, Choong Heum Park, and other distinguished 200 VIP guests at the Muharraq STP Site. The ceremony attracted Bahrain’s State TV, as well as other local media and press.
The Muharraq STP Project, located in the northeast of the Kingdom’s capital Manama, is the first of its kind in the region, which incorporates wastewater collection network components including 16.5 kilometers of Deep Gravity Sewer System and an Incinerator Plant. The plant took 3 years to build and processes a total of 100,000 tons of sewer water per day.
A consortium of Samsung Engineering, Invest AD, financial services firm from Abu Dhabi and United Utilities International, from the United Kingdom was awarded this project in 2011.
Samsung Engineering and United Utilities will be handling O&M operations for 27 years after completion. Samsung Engineering has been given the first BOOT (Build Own Operate Transfer) project in Bahrain, which will be also Samsung’s first project of this type abroad.
