AJMAN: Ajman Sewerage (ASPCL)’s Board of Directors reviewed the third phase of its strategic infrastructure expansion plan. The third phase worth Dhs400 million in investments includes the connection of an additional 15,000 properties in Al Rawdha, Al Mowaihat and part of Al Jurf 1 and Al Jurf 2 among other areas in Ajman.
Bearing in mind the rising population in the emirate, this expansion plan also focuses on the capacity increase of Ajman Sewerage’s treatment plant by 50 per cent to treat 120,000 m3 of sewage per day.
Presenting the Strategic plan, Sheikh Rashid Bin Humaid Al Nuaimi, Chairman of Ajman Sewerage, said: “The Company is committed to the development of a sustainable and modern Emirate thanks to leading water treatment technologies for the benefit of all.
“We are constantly gauging the population’s rise and the need for infrastructural expansion to accommodate seamless sewerage network.
“We strive to provide best practice, leading-edge water treatment services to our Citizens. Also, we continually focus on revitalising Ajman’s environment with sustainable initiatives.
ASPCL’s General Manager, Christophe Ledur further explained: “Under the leadership of Sheikh Rashid Bin Humaid Al Nuaimi, today 50 per cent of water treated is re-used to maintain greenery and landscaping in the Emirate.
“A good fraction of treated water also goes further for treatment at the SAFI RO Plant, a joint venture between the Government of Ajman, BESIX and Veolia, as a response to growing demand from commercial and industrial companies in Ajman.”
The Board of Directors also ratified a series of tariff adjustments to support the funding of this infrastructure expansion plan, which will complete the connection of Al Safia by 2017, part of Al Jurf 1 and Al Jurf 2 by 2019, and Al Rawdha and Al Mowaihat by 2021. Sources……
