After another record year, Bluewater Bio further reinforces growth trajectory with £33 million contract in Bahrain.

Landmark water project ensures resilient water supply to the Kingdom of Bahrain

Bluewater Bio’s impressive year on year is further enhanced with an upgrade of the North Sitra wastewater treatment works, valued at £33 million. This follows previous significant upgrades that are now treating over 50% of the wastewater generated in the Kingdom of Bahrain.

Continually recognized by external parties as the fastest growing water technology company in Europe over the years, expansion in the Middle East is an important aspect to their growth strategy.

The contract was formally concluded and signed in Westminster, at the Department for Business and Trade (DBT) headquarters. In attendance were senior representatives from both UK and Bahraini Governments.

Bluewater Bio will be responsible for all aspects of engineering, acting as EPC contractor and technology supplier, through the provision of their advanced treatment technologies, HYBACS® and FilterClear®. As the result of population and industrial expansion, additional and enhanced treatment capacity is required to continue to produce treated water suitable for reuse.

Contract duration will be 24 months and, once completed, the works will have a new capacity of 30 MLD, doubling the current volume.

The project marks the company’s fifth significant contract with the Ministry of Works. The quality, performance and reliability of these projects continue to exceed the expectations of the client, whilst maintaining the highest standards of health & safety, both domestically and internationally.

Richard Haddon, Executive Chairman & CEO of Bluewater Bio, commented: “We have been working to support Bahrain in achieving their ambitious National Water Strategy 2030. We have excellent references in the Kingdom that is enabling further growth across the GCC”

Alastair Long, His Majesty’s Ambassador to the Kingdom of Bahrain, added: “Bluewater Bio have built an excellent relationship in Bahrain and are a well-respected provider of water technologies. I am delighted that they continue to grow in the region and as such, enhance the UK business brand.”

In common with other Gulf states, most potable water is derived from seawater desalination. Consequently, the cost of this water and its embedded energy is high, and supply is limited. To make the best use of this expensive potable resource, it is common practice across the Middle East to reuse wastewater, after filtration and chlorination, for applications such as irrigation and industrial non-potable uses.

Richard Haddon concluded: “I am delighted that our growth strategy is working in the key geographies identified when we started this journey together. Working closely with our clients and producing excellent results, both on time and to budget, is building trust and certainty into these relationships.”
