Wastewater treatment project under plans for Tubli Bay nature reserve

Posted: Thursday 4th August 2011

Bluewater Bio International Concludes contract with the Ministry of Works of the Kingdom of Bahrain for the upgrading of the Tubli wastewater treatment plant using HYBACS.

Bluewater Bio International, a global specialist in the treatment of wastewater, has executed a 7.3 million Bahraini Dinar (c. US $20 million) contract with the Ministry of Works of the Kingdom of Bahrain (“the Ministry of Works”) to upgrade and expand the Tubli wastewater treatment plant, which is the largest of its kind in the country and serves a population equivalent to c. 800,000. Bluewater Bio’s patented HYBACS biological treatment process, deploying 42 of its proprietary SMARTTM reactor units, will be installed to treat an average wastewater flow of 100,000 m3/day (equivalent to 303,000 population), significantly improving the quality of the effluent of the plant as a whole. With the ongoing improvements to the sludge treatment facilities, the scheme will also prevent the excessive carry-over of sludge from the treatment plant into Tubli Bay. The project is being funded by the Bahraini Ministry of Finance.
