Oman’s Majis launches new water transmission network to Sohar

Mr. Ahmed Al Mazrouy CEO of Majis Industrial ServicesOman-based Majis Industrial Services, a water solutions provider, has inaugurated a new water transmission network in Sohar, Oman, with a capacity of 20,000 cu/m per day of process water and 10,000 cu/m per day of potable water

The network will supply water to Sohar Industrial Area, expanding Majis’ direct transmission capacity outside of SOHAR Port & Freezone.

The newly launched transmission network has been developed, firstly, to accommodate water consumption by Moon Iron Steel Industry (MISCo), to whom Majis will supply 7,000 cu/m per day of process water and 1,000 cu/m per day of potable water.

Ahmed Al-Mazrouy, CEO of Majis Industrial Services, said, “The new transmission network is a milestone for Majis as we expand our distribution capacity to directly supply water to new territories. The network will allow customers in Sohar Industrial Area to access water services provided by Majis, which are essential for their operations.

“In developing the transmission line, we have taken steps to ensure the network meets stringent environmental and sustainability criteria, including studies to ensure the piping line did not interrupt utilities infrastructure. Excavation for the line was minimal, while LED lighting at pumping stations and demand-side electricity management will minimise energy consumption – reducing both costs and our environmental impact.”

Al Mahrooqi, chairman of the Public Authority for Water, commented, “Supplying water to the industry is vital for supporting the growth of Oman’s economy. Customers in Sohar Industrial Area will benefit considerably from Majis’ expanded operations, with access water services that will enable them to operate at full capacity.”

The ceremony was inaugurated by Mohammed Al Mahrooqi, chairman of the Public Authority for Water (Diam).
