UEM India Private Limited (UEM), a water services company of Toshiba Group, has recently declared that it has won a major design builds and operate (DBO) contract for a wastewater treatment and recycling plant in Oman. The contract was awarded by Majis Industrial Services SAOC (MISC), an Omani-government owned corporation and provider of water utility services at Sohar Industrial Port Area, and covers DBO of Central Effluent Treatment and Recycle Project 1 Phase 2 in the port area. The value of the contract is about INR.220Cr (approx. OMR12.3M).
UEM provides customers with competitive DBO solutions and fully integrated engineering, procurement and construction services (EPC) for wastewater treatment and recycling. The company received the order for this facility, now under construction, and is deploying high level purifying treatment technology and facilities.
Mr. Koichi Matsui, Chairperson and Managing Director, UEM said, “I am sure that MISC’s choice of UEM for Phase 2 reflects our accomplishments in Oman and our capabilities in integrating engineering. Toshiba’s acquisition of UEM last September has been good for both companies, as it has enhanced cooperation and sharing of technologies and know-how. We will contribute to Oman’s industrial growth through the Sohar project and positively seek participation in future projects.”
