    Morganti and the engineering firm Degremont SA (Suez Environnement) collaborated on the design, construction, operation, commissioning and O&M of the Public Private Partnership (PPP) As Samra Waste Water Treatment Plant project. The project consists of expansion and technological upgrades including the construction of 2 primary settling tanks, 4 aeration tanks, 3 secondary settling tanks, 3 anerobic digesters, a dewatering building as well as other ancillary structures and associated external works. These upgrades increase the annual average design capacity of the plant by 37%. Electro-mechanical works include the installation of the main process equipment and the supply and installation of material and equipment for the non-process buildings. The project has also employed approximately 1,500 people. The plant provides Jordan, a water stressed country, with 133 million cubic metres of treated water per year – representing more than 10% of the Kingdom’s entire water resources. It is one of the largest and most modern waste water treatment plants in the Middle East, treating more than 70% of all wastewater produced in Jordan. By increasing the amount of treated water that is ultimately released into the Zarqa River, wildlife is returning to the river, and more clean water is available for irrigation to support Jordan Valley farmers. The plant also harnesses clean energy to produce 230,000 kWh of electricity per day. Through hydro energy and biogas production, the plant has an energy potential recovery of 80% of its needs, only 20% is drawn from the national grid.
