EPC of MBR 30,000 m3-day and upgrading the existing 30,000 m3-day STP conventional. The MBR plant consists of a new equalization tank, anoxic tank, aeration tank, and MBR tank. For the existing STP conventional SKME installed a new primary sedimentation, sludge receiving tank, and anoxic tank, and refurnished and retrofitted, the existing Aeration and secondary clarifier tanks. When the plant first commenced its operation its purpose was to treat Aslaa's Valley large septic infested lake, referred as "MUSK" lake sarcastically due to its unbearable stale stench of the enormous amounts of sewage dumped into this lake, 1,400 tanker trucks daily! The lake has been accumulating sewage in this amount daily for a decade. The government needed to find a solution urgently with the contingency of the lake bursting the dike, which would certainly occur when another unexpected rainstorm occurred. If the dike had burst it would immerse the surrounding communities with its putrid sewage, and would be an environmental and social disaster spreading infectious diseases in epic proportions. The plan was to dry the lake within a year at most. SKME MISK plant significantly contributed to this solution by treating 3,000,000 cubic meters of sewage from this lake, and played an integral role in Briman's sewage lake problem. Due to the plants significant achievements it was recognized by GWI panel of experts from Global water Awards for nomination, and was shortlisted as one of the four companies in the world for water re-use. Out of the four companies SKME received the prestigious "2011 Global Water Awards". The GWI Global Water Awards experts recognize and pay tribute to top performing companies that made significant environmental beneficial contributions in the water industry.

Global Water Intelligence Awards 2013
"SKME has achieved a new milestone in its remarkable quest for excellence in providing environmental and sustainable solutions for the water and waste water industry.SKME was announced winner of the prestigious award : Industrial Water Sustainability at the Global Water Awards 2013 during the Global Water Intelligence Summit held in Seville, Spain in April 2013.
TheIndustrial Water Sustainability Award goes for the project, commissioned during 2012, which shows the most compelling commitment to reducing the environmental impact of anindustrial facility.
The Winner Project is : National Food Industries (Luna) reuse system, Saudi Arabia
What is it?
A water reuse plant serving the National Food Industries Company (Luna) in Saudi Arabia. The 1,700m3/d wastewater stream comes from ten different sources within a factory that produces UHT milk, juices, condensed milk, canned beans and other vegetables.
Who is responsible?
Suido Kiko Middle East, which is a joint venture between Toray-controlled Suido Kiko and Saudi Brothers’ Commercial Company.
What makes it special?
It is a highly complex reuse project, requiring the different flows to be divided between organic and inorganic streams, and then further subdivided between high-load and low-load streams.
The project enables the client to reclaim 85% of the wastewater stream for reuse in the facility, thus dramatically reducing the volume of utility water bought in.
Jeddah is one of the most water-stressed cities in the world, and one where the food and beverage industry is both thirsty in its need for water and conservative in its attitudes to reuse. This is an imaginative and technically brilliant solution to the challenge that these facts pose.
The award was presented to SKME CEO Mr. Nizar Kammourie by the Mexican President Vincente Fox .
TORAY CEO Mr. Akihiro Nikkaku along with TORAY WATER Division Management benefited from their presence in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia during May 2013 to congratulate SKME's CEO on this prestigious award.

In this visit, SKME Eng. Ammar Al-Omari (Senior Process Engineer) explained to the young bright minds the process of sewage treatment using the advanced technology of Membrane BioReactor (MBR). The process which is easily summarized into 5 steps: First lifting station in which all the sewage is collected from the University Campus and then lifted into the newly renovated Equalization tank. Second, the Equalization tank sends the raw sewage in a constant flow rate to the 4 separate treatment trains. Third, each train uses fine screens to remove any debris larger than 2.5mm. Fourth, a circulation process is completed using pumps and blowers to complete the nitrification denitrification needed to remove nitrogen from the sewage. Fifth and finally, the water is sucked though the membrane by pumps, disinfected by sodium hypochlorite and collected in the treated water tank where trucks taking water for irrigation purposes. The plant is completely run on Automatic mode using a control panel in the control building.
SKME takes pride in teaching and educating every member of the society about the benefit of water and wastewater treatment plants.”
