14 April 2013 - The Concorde – Corodex Group (CCG), one of the Middle East region's pioneering providers of fire protection, water & waste treatment and environmental services and a part of the M.H. Al Mana Group of Companies, has revealed the successful installation of a fully automatic and monitored vacuum sewerage collection system for the Umm Al Quwain Marina Development project. The project was completed in a record six months--two months for the design and engineering phase and four months of construction, testing and commissioning. Emaar, the Marina project's developer, has lauded the group's exceptional efficiency and on-time delivery of the project. Additionally, the company also reported that a similar implementation they are currently working on for the offices, barracks, training grounds and security facilities of the Emiri guard camp in Qatar, is on-track and set for completion before the end of 2013.
According to CCG senior executives, the newly installed system will take the lead in collecting waste water from 277 luxury residential villas, leisure and recreational facilities from Community 16 of the Marina-based development. The new vacuum sewer system consists of 41 short gravity collection networks; flood proof vacuum collection chambers; 51 inspection pipes; six gate valves; vacuum tank with the capacity of 16.0 m3 and 2 submersible sewerage pumps; a vacuum station and an Odor Control Unit (OCU) with activated carbon filter and capacity of 1,200 m3/h.
“We are very pleased at the initial performance results that we have received for the vacuum sewerage collection system of the Marina Development project. During the initial phase of the project, we found it important to design a key collection system that could address the health, safety and hygienic requirement of the UAQ Marina,” said Mahmood Awad, Managing Director, CCG. “We hope to duplicate the success of this project with the coming completion of a similar project in Qatar. This is a landmark project for us as this is the first army-based effort that we have handled. Rest assured, we will continue to remain efficient and on-time with the delivery of projects entrusted to us—continuing to maintain the world class standard that we are known for.”
'We recognize that Vacuum Sewerage Technology, even though an elegant technology, requires a reputed vacuum sewage supplier and contractor to ensure the success of the project. For this, we are happy to recognize Corodex and Roediger as being truly a pioneer and leader in the Middle East for the application of this technology. Again, we would like to express our gratitude in providing your 100 per cent effort to complete our vacuum sewage project for our community,' said Ahmad Matrooshi, Managing Director, Emaar Dubai.
