Master developer Nakheel has handed a contract for nearly AED4m (€1m) to ILF Consulting Engineers (Dubai Branch) for sewage treatment plant work at Deira Islands in Dubai.
Under the agreement, Austria-based ILF will oversee the design and construction supervision of the STP and lifting station, which are expected to be completed by the end of 2017.
The STP will be developed in two stages with the first, covering years 2017 to 2022, designed to handle 20,000 cubic metres per day. The second phase, for 2022 to 2042, will have an additional 17,000 cubic metres daily capacity.
To date, Nakheel has awarded more than AED3bn (€725m) worth of contracts for Deira Islands, including infrastructure work, coastal work and construction of the Deira Islands Night Souk, one of several new attractions at the master development.
Spanning 15.3km², Deira Islands is set to transform Dubai’s Deira district into a world-class hub for tourism, retail and entertainment, adding 40km including 21km of beach, to the city’s coastline in the process.
