UQU project consists of providing a sewage treatment plant with a capacity of 1,400 m3/day to treat the waste-water of the university in Mekkah.
The new STP will be constructed at the same location as an old STP where some parts such as the lifting station, control room, and equalization tank will be used by the new STP as well as some equipment such as Air Blowers. SKME will supply the remaining equipment and tanks to be used in the system.
The process begins with a lifting station up to the equalization tank to absorb any instability and peak flow hours. Then it will be equally distributed over 4 trains (350 m3/day each) and using the advanced technology of Membrane Bio-Reactor MBR the stream will have no suspended solids and a BOD concentration of less than 10 mg/L. extra sludge will be collected in a tank and digested using Air Diffusers.
