Biwater has secured a turnkey contract from Regie Autonome of Kenitra (RAK) to design and construct a new wastewater treatment facility for Moulay Bousselham, a fishing village and tourist destination on Morocco’s north coast.

The new facility will provide pre-treatment, biological treatment and advanced tertiary treatment, including closed low pressure ultraviolet disinfection.

The contract is already underway with civil works in progress.

Yassine Laib, Biwater’s country manager for Morocco, said: “The goal of this project is to protect Moulay Bousselham’s lagoon and beach from wastewater discharged and to recharge the water table. The project will use wastewater treatment processes to meet the need for improved sanitation conditions in this region.”
