AZF (Aspire Zone Foundation) has decided to use the latest technology for waste water treatment and achieve self-sufficiency in water supplies. AZF’s technology is the first of its kind in the country.
These water supplies can be used for irrigation and cooling of the organisation’s facilities, the system uses innovative reverse osmosis technology. The new purification station has an average capacity to treat 27,500 cubic metres per day and will be fully operational at the beginning of October.
Speaking about the latest development, Mohammed Al Meer, Chief Capital Projects Officer, said: “The station will help decrease the environmental and economic impact of waste water and marks a step forward on our path to becoming a responsible corporate citizen. The development of new solutions and the delivery of outstanding results for both our local community and our world-class facilities at AZF is what propels us forward and supports our place as a favourite destination for international athletes and teams.”
The underground station spreads around 3900 sqm of land and covers the daily water requirements of AZF, with an average output of 15,000 cubic metres of purified water. The output could be increased by 25% if needed.
Similar technologies are being used in developed nations like Japan, Singapore and France. The use of technology was finalised after a detailed investigation and consultation with experts.
AZF has plans to execute similar projects with various Qatari organisations to share its knowledge and experience in building one the largest water purification stations in Qatar.
