Belgian construction group Besix has announced the opening of a water recycling station in Ajman, UAE, following a major renovation work which will now boost its per day production capacity to 2.2 million gallons from the previous 300,000 gallons. The Safi Water Recycling Station, located at the Al Jurf Industrial Area, has been renovated at a cost of Dh30 million ($8.16 million), reported state news agency Wam. The facility will first obtain water from the Ajman Sewage Treatment Plant which will then be processed through micro-filtration and reverse osmosis process to make it pure. It will be later distributed across the emirate for industrial and commercial purposes round-the-clock, it stated. The Safi Water Recycling Station was opened by HH Sheikh Humaid bin Rashid Al Nuaimi, Supreme Council Member and Ruler of Ajman in the presence of senior government officials. Following the opening, Sheikh Humaid was shown around the station and briefed about the state-of-the-art-technology used in the desalination process, said the report. Lauding the project, Sheikh Humaid said Safi Water Recycling Station marks a qualitative leap in areas of water recycling for industrial and commercial businesses in the emirate, it added. (LINK)
