Wastewater Treatment Stations

Angola, 2019

Owini established 6 advanced wastewater treatment plants of various sizes to meet Angola’s increasing challenges, safeguarding the health of its people and the environment and enabling further development of communities and farms.

Project story

Constantly increasing standards of living and growing populations, along with urbanization, have led to the production of large quantities of wastewater containing harmful substances that cannot be released back into the environment until treated. But, with recurring droughts and water shortages, wastewater has also become a potentially valuable resource. To meet the wastewater challenge, Owini employs high-efficiency, low-maintenance natural water treatment systems, as well as a range of
technologies suited to use in rural and urban areas as well as industries.

In collaboration with other Mitrelli Group companies dealing in various aspects of infrastructure development, such as Kora and Ossi Yeto, Owini deploys advanced technologies, building small, medium and large wastewater treatment plants – multidisciplinary solutions that deliver optimal results, while abiding by regulatory constraints.

The process

Challenge

The construction of new development towns in Angola has led to the production of large quantities of wastewater containing harmful substances that cannot be released back into the environment until treated.

Approach

Employing natural water treatment systems, with high efficiency and low maintenance as well as a range of technologies suited to use in rural and urban areas as well as industries.

Solution

Building state-of-the-art wastewater treatment plants and applying multidisciplinary solutions that deliver optimal results, while abiding by regulatory constraints.
