ITT Industries Announces Wastewater Contract with Qatar
ITT Industries, Inc. has been selected to design, supply and supervise the development of a complete sewage system at the Doha South Sewage Treatment Works in Qatar.
"This project demonstrates our market leadership and expertise in providing complete wastewater solutions to the municipal and industrial treatment markets anywhere in the world," said Robert Ayers, President of ITT Industries Fluid Technology. "Our products and design capabilities strengthen the value of the solutions we provide to our customers, and contribute to our ongoing growth in the wastewater treatment market."
The new sewage system in Qatar will reduce the current odor releases and significantly improve the quality of effluent, which is used for municipal irrigation within the city of Doha. To meet customer needs, ITT will design the complete sewage works, supply all mechanical equipment, and supervise the installation and mechanical start of the plant.
The main treatment process for the Doha South Sewage Treatment Works will be the ITT ABJ ICEAS process. The ICEAS process, which is a fully automatic, simple to operate, time-based biological treatment system, is easily expanded and produces a high quality effluent. The plant will include the complete ICEAS process equipment, inlet works, sludge holding tank equipment, sludge thickeners and dewatering and pumping stations. Other ITT products to be installed will include Flygt pumps and mixers. The plant is scheduled for completion within the next two years.
