RAKSA appointed BESIX through its subsidiary Moalajah as service operator. Moalajah brought in experienced professionals working under a new and comprehensive O&M structure. The optimisations were based around 4 key factors:
- Sweating the existing assets to ensure maximum efficiency
- Developing effective operating procedures and training programmes
- Implementing a sustainable maintenance scheme
- Recruitment and development of capable staff
Initially, a particular focus was made on developing standard operating procedures, safety management systems (e.g. permits to work, electrical isolations, confined space permits) and planned and unplanned operational tasks, preventive and corrective maintenance of mechanical, electrical, instrumentation, control and automation (MEICA) equipment using Moalajah’s Computerized Maintenance Management System (CMMS).
Results & Achievements
Through the systematic approach taken by Moalajah, public concerns about environmental issues and related wastewater nuisances such as odour were reduced and services improved for the population of Ras Al Khaimah.
Treatment plants are now running at the maximum capacity of their design whilst producing a reliable effluent quality reused for landscaping for the benefit of the RAK population and its visitors.
Moalajah is regularly invited by RAKSA to provide additional services out of the initial scope agreement.
