ITT, a engineering and manufacturing company, has won a $32m contract from Larsen & Toubro (L&T) for the Phase II extension of Qatar’s Doha South Sewage Treatment Works.

Under the contract, ITT will design and supply an additional eight of its Sanitaire sequence batch reactors (SBRs), which is expected to increase the waste water treatment capacity of the Doha South plant by 92 million liters per day.

For the Phase II extension, ITT will design and supply an ultra-filtration plant, which will produce treated effluent suitable for reuse in irrigation.

With Phase I operational and upon the completion of Phase II, the plant will have a total capacity to treat 187 million liters of waste water per day.

ITT said that it will be providing the process engineering for the entire project to engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) contractor L&T.

ITT will also be providing to L&T detailed engineering support, supervision of installation and commissioning, and operation of the plant during the takeover testing period.

The Phase II extension is expected to be operational by 2012.

John Williamson, president of water and waste water group at ITT, said: ”We are proud to build on the success of the first phase of the Doha South project and to continue our partnership with Larsen & Tourbro and Ashghal, Qatar’s public works authority.

”Ultimately, this project is about supporting the growth and development of the Doha region and we are honored to have a role in ensuring a clean water supply for the Qatari people.”
