The Tourism Development and Investment Company(TDIC) is the master developer for key cultural, residential and tourism destinations in Abu Dhabi.TDIC philosophy is based on delivering best practices across every segment in which it operates – be it luxurious resorts, eco tourism or world class cultural hubs.
Just 500 meters off the coast of Abu Dhabi, TDIC is developing Saadiyat Island,a unique place that will offer visitors, housing, cultural, social and entertainment facilities. Leighton Contracting, the main infrastructure development contractor of the island, chose Metito to construct and put into operation new sewage treatment works to serve the Saadiyat cultural district which encompasses Zayed National Museum, Saadiyat Beach, Saadiyat Marina, the Golf Course, an International School, Saadiyat Promenade, Arab World Museum, Saadiyat Lagoons, Saadiyat Retreat and Saadiyat Reserve 5 stars hotel.
In view of the prestigious nature of this development, the membrane bioreactor technology (MBR) was chosen for the project. MBR produces high quality effluent that can be safely used in open irrigation with no health hazard. Treated and disinfected effluent from STW is discharged to an irrigation network to be re-used for landscape irrigation.
