Reconstruction of the Al Qusair water treatment plant in Syria

On behalf of the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC), GAUFF Engineering has been commissioned since November 2022 to prepare a "Diagnosis and Feasibility Study for the Rehabilitation of the Al Qusair Water Treatment Plant". The Al Qusair water treatment plant supplies drinking water to the city of Hama and 65 villages in the rural areas of Hama and Homs provinces and is considered one of the largest drinking water systems in Syria. With a high-performance water treatment plant, it currently ensures the supply of safe and clean drinking water for around one million people.

Due to the increasing number of people who will return to the provinces of Hama and Homs in the coming years following displacement caused by the conflict, the demand for water in the Al Qusair supply area will rise accordingly.

In order to ensure the water supply timely and in the long term, GAUFF Engineering is conducting a diagnosis of the Al Qusair water treatment plant and designing a comprehensive rehabilitation program in which short, medium and long-term measures are identified, coordinated and analysed with regard to their respective risks.

The proposed work programme aims to optimise water production over time and ensure the sustainable operation and maintenance of the water treatment plant. In addition to preparing preliminary designs, specifications and bills of quantities for all identified rehabilitation works, GAUFF Engineering will also develop proposals for a training and further education concept for the operating staff.

The project is scheduled for completion by mid-2023.
