Al Khumrah is the largest existing WWTP site, located in the southern part of Jeddah City in the industrial area of Al Khumrah District in the Kingdom of Saudi-Arabia. It consists of four existing phases with a combined capacity of approx. 250,000 m³ /d.
SPIRAC in collaboration with Watequin have won a contract for supply of the sludge handling, storage and truck outloading systems for the latest upgrade to Al Khumra. The project scope includes 2 x 200m3 silos with high capacity sliding frame outloading systems, fabricated entirely of 316 stainless steel, and two shaftless screw conveyor trains including 15m vertical lift from the centrifuge plant to the top of the silos. This design ensures odour and mess containment, high reliability, low maintenance, low power consumption and extended life expectancy in a harsh coastal/desert environment.
Equipment delivery is scheduled for Q1 2015.
