Joining forces for a greener environment

Dubai Sports City (DSC) and Moalajah have joined forces to recycle wastewater and literally help to create a greener environment. The local operations and maintenance company Moalajah, which is a joint-venture of Veolia and Besix, has been appointed to manage, maintain and enhance wastewater facilities within the 50 million square-feet mixed-use development for a period of 10 years.

Moalajah operates and looks after DSC’s own sewerage treatment plant, and the resultant high-quality recycled wastewater and treated effluent is used to irrigate the vast array of sports facilities and gardens within the community.
 
This includes The Els Club’s 18-hole championship golf course, the ICC Academy’s two full-sized cricket ovals and adjoining practice pitches, plus the Dubai International Stadium, the numerous football pitches used by the Spanish Soccer Schools coaching programme and the rugby pitches, too. The large amount of greenery around the various communities within Dubai Sports City, including Victory Heights, also benefit. The treated water is also available for use by companies and communities outside of DSC, as required.
 
Assets owned by Dubai Sport City include a sewerage system that consists of sewers, a pumping station and a sewage treatment plant which includes a Membrane Bio-Reactor with a capacity of 25,000 m3/day.
In addition, Dubai Sports City also owns a reverse osmosis (RO) plant (800 m3/day) adjoining the sewage treatment plant in order to supply polished ‘sweet water’ to other clients.
