- This is Cadagua's second contract obtained in the Middle East in the last few months.
- In 2006, Cadagua built its first plant in the Persian Gulf.
- Cadagua, a subsidiary of Ferrovial Agroman with over 200 water plants in 15 countries, continues to expand abroad.
Madrid, 4 November 2010.- Cadagua, the Ferrovial Agroman subsidiary specialized in the design, construction and operation of water treatment plants, is to build a wastewater treatment plant in the capital of Oman. The 70 million euro project (37 million Omani rials) was awarded by Haya Water, Oman's wastewater services company.
Cadagua heads the consortium that will build the plant, which will treat up to 50,000 m3/day, making it the world's third-largest wastewater treatment plant using advanced MBR technology. The company will work with local partner Galfar Engineering & Contracting; the project will boost Cadagua's backlog in the first nine months to 516 million euro.
"This new project in the Middle East is strategic for Cadagua and it is extremely important following the contract awarded recently for the desalination plant in Ajman. It is a market with great growth potential in water treatment. We are ready to seize the opportunities in water infrastructure development in that region," said Antonio Casado, General Manager of Cadagua.
This is Cadagua's first contract in Oman (it already has two in the region), strengthening the company's foothold in the Persian Gulf as a leading provider of water technology solutions.
Founded in 1971, Cadagua has built over 200 drinking water, desalination and sewage treatment plants, and over 140 industrial water treatment plants. Cadagua currently has references in such countries as China, Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Cyprus, Algeria, Tunisia, Chile, Venezuela, Portugal, France, the United Kingdom, Poland and India.
