Stormwater drain from airport ramp to the sea
Successful start-up of apron dewatering system for treatment of rainwater, floodwater and oily spillages at Salalah International Airport.
Protecting the environment is an important subject at Salalah International Airport. Especially the treatment of oily waste waters coming from heavy rainfall and subsequent contamination of the water with oil and kerosene. To provide safety regarding environmental matters AWAS International was assigned to design and execute four fuel separators collecting rain and floodwater from the apron at Salalah airport serving the nearby Shell fuel farm. Separators built there are planned to achieve a discharge concentration of less than 5 mg/litre.
