Muscat, Haya Water celebrated the completion of

the Phase II of Al- Ansab Sewage Treatment Plant expansion moving to

the last and the third phase which is expected to be finished in 2022.

The expansion of the STP is an attempt to keep up with the

increasing demands of the waste water service a result of the

remarkable urbanization in Muscat.

Eng. Khalid bin Hassan al-Lawati, Acting Projects General Manager

at Haya Water announced at the launching ceremony held at the

Crown Plaza, Madinat Al Irfan that the plant is equipped with state of

art technology which is the membrane reactors technology known as

MBR. This plant is considered to be one of the largest in the world that

operates using this technology. Furthermore, the project was

completed three millions hours without lost time injuries.

He added that the capacity of Al Ansab STP after Phase II reaches

125,000 cubic meters per day.

Eng. Khalid Hassan al-Lawati affirmed that the actual operation of

this STP has already started and its quality is very high. He also

assured that this station’s capacity is sufficient to absorb the waste

water that comes through the connected networks to the STP or

through the yellow tankers which no longer have to wait to offload the

waste water.

It is worth mentioning that the plant, which was built and operated

in 2010, accommodated 57,300 cubic meters per day and the capacity

of the Al Ansab Plant will increase to 140,000 cubic meters per day

after the completion of the phase III by the end of 2022.
