Al Manara: Drinking Water Production Plant

Khartoum, Sudan

In 2010 the Dutch Development Bank (FMO), in cooperation with other international financing organizations, invested in a drinking water production plant in Khartoum, Sudan. The capacity of the plant is intended to be 200,000 m³ per day. The arrangement with the government of Sudan is that they buy the drinking water of Al Manara. The government then sells the drinking water to the local people. The raw water is extracted from the Nile.

The overall Omdurman Water Supply Project implied the construction of a completely new drinking water treatment plant in Khartoum, with a capacity of 200,000 m³ per day, transmission mains, a connection to the new storage reservoir (40,000 m³), a booster station at Al Thoura, and the connection to the existing storage in Al Gamayir.
