Incatema starts to manufacture the mechanical equipment for the Cambérène Waste Water Treatment Plant in Senegal

7 May, 2020

Incatema Consulting & Engineering has started to manufacture a series of mechanical units for the Waste Water Treatment Plant (WWTP) of Cambérène in Senegal, including the following:

• Wall mounted penstocks, motorised penstocks, adjustable spillways and canal sluices, all made of stainless steel, supplied from the north of Spain.

• Various equipment in stainless steel for the removal of solids in suspension that enter the WWTP, such as automatic motorised grates for large and fine solids, rotary screens, worm conveyors, grease and foam concentrators, sand classifiers, bridge scrapers for the grit chambers, sludge thickening mechanisms, bridge skimmers for secondary decanters, etc., which are all entirely manufactured in Spain.

• Plastic structures known as lamella for activating the flocculation of sludge generated in the primary decanters, which consist of a decanting process and subsequent filtering of the water and which will be supplied from Catalonia.

• Archimedean screws in stainless steel for elevation of the raw water once all inert products have been eliminated. These are 9 worm screws with a length of 14 metres, and diameter of 1.5 metres. These will be the star elements of the treatment plant, and transport and installation of same will both represent a challenge. They will be made in the Czech Republic.

• Various pumps, propulsion equipment and sludge mixers that will be manufactured in Germany.

The aforementioned equipment, manufacture of which has just been contracted, will have a supply period ranging from two months for the plastic structures, to 4 months for the Archimedean screws.

Incatema Consulting & Engineering will soon purchase another package of no less important mechanical equipment for this treatment plant, which will service 52,420 inhabitants of Cambérène, a district of Dakar, in the Republic of Senegal, as part of a project funded by the Islamic Development Bank, and designed to process an average of 92,000 cubic metres/day, with a peak capacity of 101,000 cubic metres/day, as already reported here.
