Constructed Wetlands Competence Centre

Constructed Wetlands are man-made treatment systems that use natural processes which include wetland vegetation, soils, and their associated microbial assemblages to improve water quality. They are applied to sites for the treatment of sewage, wastewater from oil and gas facilities, industrial effluents, sludge, storm water, grey water, agricultural runoff and eutrophic lakes.

Constructed wetlands are a cost-effective and technically feasible approach for treating wastewater. Advantages of wetlands include cost-effectiveness over traditional wastewater processes, low operating and maintenance expenses and effective management of fluctuations in inflow quality and quantity. They are also more aesthetically pleasing and can reduce or eliminate unpleasant odours associated with wastewater.

Oman’s Constructed Wetland Competence Centre is a hub of BAUER Nimr LLC’s specialised expertise based in Muscat. The Constructed Wetland Competence Centre works globally to develop natural wastewater treatment systems for the BAUER Group. The centre is at the forefront of innovative wetland design and construction to develop natural treatment solutions specific to project and client requirements.

Through our Research and Development (R&D) activities there is continuous growth in general improvement and technology. A current focus area is maximising the reuse of treated industrial and sewage water from our constructed wetlands for agricultural purposes. Another key focus of the R&D team is minimising the pressure on scarce water resources in arid regions whilst facilitating the beneficial reuse of treated effluent.

Through our Constructed Wetland Competence Centre clients have immediate access to a team of experienced wetland specialists, designers, builders and operators. The centre also boasts an interdisciplinary team of highly qualified and experienced engineers, scientists and economists, all of whom are focused on developing constructed wetland solutions. Depending on the scope of a project, we offer our partners and clients a broad range of targeted services ranging from feasibility studies, design and construction through to maintenance and training.

Hydrocarbon Contaminated Soil Bioremediation

BAUER Nimr LLC offers a vast array of treatment technologies that address the environmental and economic issues companies experience when disposing of hazardous and non-hazardous wastes, contaminated soil and dredged material.

But what makes us different?

Based on the vast experience of our specialised staff we know that every project is unique and we treat it that way. BAUER Nimr has successfully remediated more than 500,000 tons of hydrocarbon-contaminated soils in Oman since 2011. Our bioremediation system solutions are natural, green and cost-effective alternatives using micro-organisms that exist inherently in the surrounding environment.

As Oman’s leading provider of hydrocarbon contaminated soil bioremediation solutions, BAUER Nimr has created a streamlined and highly-effective solids and fluid treatment system that provides the oil and gas industry with additional sustainable waste options. BAUER’s German research facilities have developed a system that ensures reliable treatment methods that help producers to conscientiously and economically manage the solid and fluid waste generated from drilling and production operations.

The combination of our various technologies, locations, and experienced team will result in a soil treatment and recycling or disposal plan that is tailored specifically to work in the client’s project site. Our bioremediation solutions are designed, and constantly monitored, to work with local conditions and enhance the natural cleaning processes.

Whether it is light or highly hazardous contamination, our array of proven treatment technologies are uniquely specific to our clients’ needs.
