The British company Biwater won a turnkey contract last week from the Régie Autonome de Kenitra (RAK) to design and build a new wastewater treatment plant in Moulay Bousselham, a fishing village and a tourist destination located on the north coast of the vast Moroccan coastline. The contract for the design and construction of the wastewater treatment plant is already underway, as is the civil works. The new facility will provide pretreatment, biological treatment and advanced tertiary treatment, including closed low pressure ultraviolet disinfection.
“The objective of this project is to protect the lagoon and Moulay Bousselham beach from discharged wastewater and to recharge the water table. The project will use wastewater treatment processes to meet the need to improve sanitation conditions in this region,” said Yassine Laib, Country Manager of Biwater in Morocco.
Biwater is also already engaged in the construction of a wastewater treatment plant in the coastal town of Tarfaya, in southern Morocco.
