Project Description

IWTP-8 comprises three parallel and separate treatment streams to treat industrial wastewater arising from the large industrial cluster in Jubail. Stream 2 includes a 3-lane activated sludge process with 8 circular clarifiers and currently treats around 20,000 m3/day. The HYBACS upgrade will increase treatment capacity to 50,000 m3/day. The Client’s specifications for the upgrade include that the existing treatment process must not be interrupted during the upgrade, the solution must be a proven technology, be highly energy efficient, have a small footprint and that the upgrade must be completed within a short timescale.
