British company Biwater won a turnkey contract from the National Electricity and Drinking Water Office (ONEE) to design and build a new wastewater treatment plant in the coastal town of Tarfaya in the South from Morocco.
The design and construction contract is already underway with earthworks in progress. The Biwater team is proposing an accelerated construction program to reduce the ecological impact of raw sewage along the coast, the company says. They had already landed another contract in Laayoune. The new project “is part of the country’s efforts to clean up the Tarfaya coast and protect the environment from the effects of sewage discharges.” The company will use treatment processes to meet the needs of the populations for wastewater treatment in this region. The new facility will provide pretreatment, biological treatment and advanced tertiary treatment, including ultraviolet disinfection and sludge dewatering. After construction, Biwater will provide 12 months of operational and maintenance support to the local workforce.
