Continuing the trend of significant growth in Libya for WPL Ltd and El Zulal, the most recent development has been to provide wastewater treatment solutions for a hospital near Ubari. These facilities were provided as part of a co-operation project between El Zulal and the Libyan Government.
El Zulal are the local expert distributors and installers for WPL's wastewater treatment solutions across Libya, working in partnership for over two years they have provided wastewater treatment facilities for a range of fixed and temporary locations across the country.
WPL provided a new bespoke HiPAF (High Performance Aerated Filter) plant to sit alongside the previous system they provided to the site located in a remote part of south western Libya. When providing the new sewage treatment solution WPL modernised the prior system to bring it up to date with current Libyan and World Health Organisation (WHO) irrigation regulations and to treat the wastewater to the highest international standards.
El Zulal contacted WPL with their specification needs for this site as they are an internationally recognised leader in the design, manufacture and supply of standardised and bespoke environmental solutions for sewage treatment plants. El Zulal already had an existing working relationship with WPL as they have provided similar solutions for other temporary and permanent sites in Libya. WPL were also a clear choice for this project as they had provided the previous system that required development and updating.
The main contacts within El Zulal were Iftikhar ul Haq and Dave Humphreys who dealt with WPL's International Sales Manager, Mark Howorth, Design Engineer, Pete Barnes, and Engineering Manager, Gary Tasney to complete the requirements for the hospital. WPL provided details specifications for each item of the system provide with technical drawings and quotes.
The treatment plant provided to treat the wastewater for a hospital near Ubari in Libya consists of a new HiPAF plant and a Sand Filter system. The HiPAF Modular plants consist of twin streams installed below ground, of Glass Reinforced Plastic (GRP) primary settlement, biozone treatment and final settlement tanks. The compressors and control panels that provide air to the system are housed in a kiosk adjacent to the plant. All tanks, covers and kiosks are manufactured in GRP for corrosion resistance and long life.
