Three favourite projects and why?

Water Security Mega Reservoirs Project, Qatar: The project entails construction of five potable water mega reservoirs sites and interconnecting network of large diameter water pipelines. Each reservoirs site will ultimately comprise up to nine reservoirs, each of which will be the largest of their type in the world. The reservoirs and pipeline network, with associated pumping stations, will provide up to 15M m3 of strategic potable water storage.

North Plymouth Water Treatment Works, UK: North Plymouth Water Treatment Works involves design of 90 MLD combined ion exchange and ceramic micro-filtration plant. The facility, which is capable of processing 150,000 litres of water a day, uses suspended ion exchange and ceramic microfiltration technology, which represents a move away from current chemical and energy-intensive treatment processes. It is the first time that this technology has been used in the UK.

Davyhulme Sewage Works, UK: It is a £170m modernisation of the Davyhulme wastewater treatment works in Manchester. As one of the largest wastewater treatment plants in Europe and the largest in the Northwest, Davyhulme serves a population of more than one million people.
