Bluewater Bio has continued to experience impressive growth year on year, and has recently secured a significant contract worth £33 million for the upgrade of the North Sitra wastewater treatment works.

This adds to their previous successful upgrades, which now handle over 50% of the wastewater generated in the Kingdom of Bahrain.

Consistently recognized as the fastest growing water technology company in Europe by external parties, Bluewater Bio’s expansion in the Middle East is a crucial part of their growth strategy.

The contract was officially signed at the Department for Business and Trade (DBT) headquarters in Westminster, with senior representatives from both the UK and Bahraini governments in attendance.

Bluewater Bio will take on the role of EPC contractor and technology supplier, providing their advanced treatment technologies, HYBACS® and FilterClear®, and overseeing all engineering aspects.

With population and industrial expansion, there is a need for additional and improved treatment capacity to ensure the production of treated water suitable for reuse.

The contract will last for 24 months, and upon completion, the project will increase its capacity to 30 MLD, which is double the current volume.
This project represents the company’s fifth significant contract with the Ministry of Works.

The company’s projects have consistently exceeded client expectations in terms of quality, performance, and reliability, while maintaining the highest health & safety standards both domestically and internationally.

Richard Haddon, Executive Chairman & CEO of Bluewater Bio, stated: “We have been dedicated to supporting Bahrain in achieving their ambitious National Water Strategy 2030.Our strong track record in the Kingdom has enabled further expansion across the GCC.”

Alastair Long, His Majesty’s Ambassador to the Kingdom of Bahrain, commented: “Bluewater Bio has established a strong presence in Bahrain and is a highly regarded provider of water technologies.

I am pleased to see their continued growth in the region, enhancing the UK business brand.”
Like other Gulf states, Bahrain relies heavily on seawater desalination for potable water.

As a result, the cost and energy consumption of this water are high, and supply is limited.

To maximize the use of this expensive resource, it is common in the Middle East to treat and reuse wastewater for purposes such as irrigation and non-potable industrial uses after filtration and chlorination.

Richard Haddon concluded: “I am delighted that our growth strategy is working in the key geographies identified when we started this journey together.

Working closely with our clients and producing excellent results, both on time and to budget, is building trust and certainty into these relationships.”
