One of the world’s largest and most ambitious wastewater treatment schemes, the Umm Al Hayman Wastewater Treatment Plant in Kuwait has the ultimate capacity to treat 700,000 m3/day of wastewater, producing water and even compost for agriculture and industry and transforming Kuwait’s water sector. The project has comprised five components: the first phase of the wastewater treatment plant, the Egailah and Sabah Al Ahmad wastewater pump stations, the emergency sea outfall, and the TSE reservoir and pump station.
The project also included the upgrade of the existing Egailah wastewater pump station to cater for a capacity of 8.3 m3/s. The effort included upgrading an existing pump station to reach a capacity of 6.8 m3/s and constructing a new pump station, with a capacity of 1.5 m3/s, within the same site. On the other hand, the Sabah Al Ahmad wastewater pump station has a capacity of 2.18 m3/s, and includes a GRP potable water tank and pump station as well as an admin building and guardhouse.
