The Taif ISTP Project: A Landmark Achievement

In a recent interview with Paulo Resende, the Business Development Director of Tawzea (International Water Distribution Co.), we gained valuable insights into the significance of the Taif ISTP (Independent Sewage Treatment Plant) project for Saudi Arabia.

According to Paulo Resende, the Taif ISTP project expresses KSA’s resilience and determination to face the Kingdom’s water challenges.

The project's development was marked by a series of formidable challenges, including the COVID-19 pandemic, global market shortages, and difficulties in procuring essential products. Despite these obstacles, the project achieved success, a landmark to the nation's commitment to progress.

The Taif ISTP project adheres to stringent specifications to deliver 100% capacity water purification and a demanding sludge treatment process, aiming to produce sludge with a 90% dry matter rating.

With a capacity of handling an average flow of 100,000 cubic meters per day, the plant addresses the region's sewage treatment needs while delivering high-quality treated water, ready for reuse, marking a new era in the country's development.

LUCAS® TS: best-in-class solution for sustainable wastewater treatment

During the interview, Paulo Resende acknowledged the pivotal role played by Waterleau in securing this landmark project. Paulo says the significance of the Waterleau solution for the biological treatment process cannot be underestimated. Considered the heart of the plant, the LUCAS TS significantly contributes to the plant’s exceptional levels of performance in terms of power consumption and treated sewage quality.

In the construction phase, the LUCAS TS tech pack impacted civil costs due to its compactness and small footprint. While the reduced capex compared to the construction of a conventional set-up with similar capacity was a plus in the final design, reliability and operation expenditures were key in the project’s overall assessment. Last, but not least, the intelligence of the digital water management platform offered new opportunities for future-proof and green wastewater treatment.

Collaboration with Waterleau: A Key to Success

Paulo Resende emphasized the exceptional nature of the collaboration with the Waterleau team. He highlighted the shared focus on delivering the project on time while maintaining uncompromising quality standards, which proved critical in addressing both minor and major challenges associated with a project of this magnitude. The importance of constant communication and unwavering commitment to deadlines and quality standards as fundamental elements was key in contributing to the project's success.

If you are seeking a partner known for delivering quality and robust solutions, one that prioritizes optimized solutions over cut-rate pricing, I recommend Waterleau. Their commitment to excellence and innovative solutions makes them a standout choice for any project
