WABAG India has captured an order with a value in excess of EUR 30 to construct a water treatment plant in Nigeria.
Dabbed industrial raw water treatment plant (RWTP), the plant construction will have a capacity of 60,000 m3/d and process lagoon water using a combination of biological and UF/RO-based tertiary treatment.
The water treatment plant in Nigeria will be constructed for Dangote Fertilizer Ltd. as part of a greenfield, integrated fertiliser and refinery complex. Dangote Fertilizer Limited is a company of the Dangote Group, one of Africa’s most diversified business groups. The fertiliser complex will be located near Lagos, Nigeria’s largest city, and be the largest of its type in Africa. WABAG is to secure the water supply for this important new production facility.
60,000 m3/d of raw water from the lagoon will be processed using a combination of biological treatment and membrane filtration – ultra filtration & reverse osmosis – as a tertiary treatment. The scope of the contract for WABAG includes the design, engineering and supply of the water treatment plant, as well as supervision of installation and commissioning.
Furthermore, in the beginning of September 2015, WABAG has received a follow-up job for a desalination and demineralization plant for Dangote based on the ion exchange process with mixed bed filter. The units will treat salty water emanating from the WABAG Raw Water Treatment Plant. The contract value amounts to US$1.9 million.
The Dangote order is not WABAG’s first in Nigeria, as July 8th 2015 saw the successful conclusion of the performance guarantee trial run for a WABAG demineralization plant (2 x 150 m3/h) for a fertilizer complex belonging to the INDORAMA corporation.
