The winning bidder will refurbish sewage transmission pipelines in the ‘Part B’ area covering Paradise, North Ardiya and Ardiya 2.

The project is part of the Government of Kuwait’s programme to expand and upgrade its existing wastewater treatment infrastructure.

The Ardiya wastewater treatment facility was recently converted to a preliminary treatment plant.

Sewage is screened and degreased at Ardiya before being pumped by pipeline to a larger plant for further treatment at Sulaibiya.
