Major order for WABAG in Nigeria worth over EUR 30 million


WABAG India has captured an order with a value in excess of EUR 30 million for an industrial raw water treatment plant (RWTP) in Nigeria. The RWTP will have a capacity of 60,000 m3/d and process lagoon water using a combination of biological and UF/RO-based tertiary treatment.      

WABAG is to design and build this plant for Dangote Fertilizer Ltd. as part of a greenfield, integrated fertiliser and refinery complex. Dangote Fertilizer Limited is a company of the Dangote Group, one of Africa’s most diversified business groups. The fertiliser complex will be located near Lagos, Nigeria’s largest city, and be the largest of its type in Africa. WABAG is to secure the water supply for this important new production facility.

60,000 m3/d of raw water from the lagoon will be processed using a combination of biological treatment and membrane filtration – ultrafiltration & reverse osmosis – as a tertiary treatment. The scope of the contract for WABAG includes the design, engineering and supply of the water treatment plant, as well as supervision of installation and commissioning.

The Dangote order is not WABAG’s first in Nigeria, as July 8th 2015 saw the successful conclusion of the performance guarantee trial run for a WABAG demineralization plant (2 x 150 m3/h) for a fertilizer complex belonging to the INDORAMA corporation.

The new order on the African continent represents confirmation of WABAG’s continuing focus on this emerging market and a major success for the multi-national WABAG Group as a whole.
