Tanqia Fujairah

Established in 2002 with a 33-year Concession Agreement, Tanqia Fujairah is the wastewater utility for the City of Fujairah, a rapidly growing city located in the United Arab Emirates. The utility serves over 100,000 residents and treats over 16,000 cubic meters per day, with over 20,000 m3 in treatment capacity expansions being planned between 2016 and 2022. In addition, Tanqia Fujairah is responsible for the marketing and distribution of treated wastewater for non-potable uses throughout the city, working with the municipality and the private sector to ensure that this valuable resource is put to productive use. Tanqia Fujairah was conceived, developed and is majority-owned by Tanqia Environment. The utility’s other shareholders are Mubadala Development Company of Abu Dhabi and the Overseas Trading Company of Fujairah. At each stage of the design, development and construction process, Tanqia Environment worked with the world’s leading practitioners to ensure quality and reliability. The utility’s treatment plant and network were designed and constructed by the German joint venture of Bilfinger Berger AG, Passavant Roediger and Fichtner GmBH. Allen & Overy and Denton Wilde Sapte represented Tanqia Environment and the Government of Fujairah, respectively, in the complex structuring of the concession agreement.
