ADSSC picks Mott MacDonald for pumping station project

Mott MacDonald is to provide contract administration and site overview services for the development of what is claimed to be one of the world’s largest underground pumping stations following its appointment by sewerage service provider Abu Dhabi Sewerage Services Company (ADSSC).

The pumping station, based in the Emirate of Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates, will be more than 100m deep, 40m in diameter and have a peak pumping capacity of 3.3m3 per day.

Mott MacDonald will undertake the role of engineer for the contract administration and construction oversight, involving project, design, cost, contract and health, safety and environment management.

The project is due for completion towards the middle of 2015.
