The project aims to increase the capacity of the pumping stations in New Slata, Al Mansoura, Al Messila, and Al Rayyan by 62% to 211% in order to accommodate both current and future sewage flows within these important areas.
Refurbishment works include the installation of new equipment to improve the pumping stations’ performance and functionality with the upgrade of pumping stations’ control systems, including new telemetry systems, improved fire alarm and suppression systems, new instrumentation, among others. This is in addition to improved odour control systems to prevent or reduce bad odours in the surrounding areas.
The New Slata, Al Messila, and Al Rayyan Pumping Stations will undergo a dramatic increase in their ability to accommodate and pump the sewage flows, as opposed to the current capacity with the existing pumping stations and equipment.
Upgrade works at Al Mansoura pumping station include the installation of new equipment and constructing a new Odour Control Unit (OCU) to enable more efficient operations and to prevent bad odour at this location.
In addition, the project includes the decommissioning of Ras Abu Abboud Pumping Station, to be replaced with a new gravity sewer line.
