Kuwaiti WWTP Takes Integrated Biological Approach To Reduce Construction Costs And Improve Effluent QualitySource: Siemens Industry, Inc. - Water Technologies
The BioFlowsheet+™ Solution from Siemens Water Technologies analyzes an existing system to evaluate how the system can be improved to meet a variety of new and updated effluent parameters. SWT would recommend a total process solution by which an additional capacity may be achieved, improve effluent parameters to a high level of performance, maximize the use of existing tankage, provide guarantees on the process, power consumption and solids reduction capabilities.
iMushrif Trading and Contracting Company of Kuwait City is installing a high-performance nutrient removal system to handle 180 mld average to 270 mld peak flow at the Kubd Wastewater Treatment Plant (WWTP) located outside of Kuwait City, Kuwait. The solution is based on a biological process optimization program from Siemens Water Technologies that will help the WWTP meet required effluent levels to produce reuse-quality water for irrigation and landscaping purposes. The Kubd plant will be commissioned in August 2010.
After reviewing merits of the plant design and operating results from a similar installation in South Carolina, USA, Mushrif and the end-user, Kuwait’s Ministry of Public Works, were convinced that Siemens’ BioFlowsheet+™ Solution would best meet the plant’s needs.
