Strukton and Verdygo sign MoU with Port of Sohar for waste water treatment plant in Oman

23 February 2018

On Wednesday February 21, Strukton and Verdygo signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with Port of Sohar – consisting of 50% Omani government and 50% Port of Rotterdam – for the development of a revolutionary waste water treatment plant based at the Sohar Port. Sohar is a deep-sea port in the Sultanate of Oman, one of the fastest growing ports in the world. Rock International Oman is involved in the signing as the local partner for Strukton International in the country.

Strukton has the exclusive right to sell and construct the Verdygo technology in the Middle East. The proposed treatment plant uses the Verdygo modular technology for efficient and environmentally responsible waste water treatment. It allows rapid scaling-up of operational capacity and delivers sustainable options for waste water reuse for industry or greenhouses, making a considerable reduction in traditional water and energy demands at the port and free zone.

The MoU was signed at an event, organised to welcome Sigrid Kaag, the Dutch Minister of Foreign Affairs and Minister for Foreign Trade and Development, to Oman along with a delegation. The cooperation established in the MoU between the Port of Sohar and Strukton International / Verdygo was partly achieved thanks to the efforts of the Dutch Foreign Affairs Envoy and delegation for the GCC countries.
