| Updated on April 29, 2019 Published on April 29, 2019

L&T, along with its joint venture partner, BESIX, has finished building a Sewage Treatment Plant (STP) in the United Arab Emirates.

The 3,75,000 cubic metres per day STP has come up in Jebel Ali (Phase 2) and is claimed to be the biggest in the UAE. L&T in a statement added that the plant was finished ahead of schedule, maintaining the highest standards of quality and safety.

The Jebel Ali Sewage Treatment Plant Phase-2 Expansion is Dubai Municipality’s strategic project of 3,75,000 cubic metres per day, to meet current and future demand generated from the surrounding area that will see major new developments, including Expo 2020. The Jebel Ali facilities have a total treatment capacity of 675 million litres per day (MLD), which includes the existing 300 MLD of Phase–1.

“This is, perhaps, the first project of this magnitude and complexity that has been completed and delivered ahead of time, with not a single minute lost due to incidents of any kind,” said S. N. Subrahmanyan, Chief Executive Officer & Managing Director, Larsen & Toubro. “With water becoming such a precious commodity the world over, projects like these make a huge difference to the ecology and it is always good to be associated with such projects,” he added. The STP has been built on a build, test, commission, operate and maintain mode, company officials said.
