Nature of the Work
The plant, which is the city’s biggest installed advanced biological plant, in its last phase, will purify 600.000 m³/day of wastewater refusal.
In this phase, the plant has been constructed to treat the wastewater refusal of 2.000.000 inhabitants. The advanced Biological Purification process is intended to remove carbon and nutrients such as nitrogen and phosphorus from the waste, which are the main causes for the pollution of water sources. Piomak installed the total electrical works for the treatment plant with a total of 15.200 KW installed power, which included the entire Medium, Low Voltage, and the related Motor Control Centre (MCC) panels. Piomak also furnished the needed Medium and Low Voltage power cabling and the process signal cabling.
Because of the high complexity of the plant, as a part of its contract, Piomak provided an integrated automation and SCADA system which is based on Programmable Logic Controller (PLC) units that enable the central control and monitoring of the complete plant.
