Ramada Ajman unveils new RO plant, aims annual savings of AED290,000
To recycle 60% of the hotel’s daily water waste
Ajman, UAE, (March 23, 2016) – Coinciding with the observance of World Water Day, Ramada Hotel & Suites Ajman unveiled an all-new Reverse Osmosis (RO) plant, which aims to recycle the hotel’s waste water by 60 percent and target an annual savings of about AED 290,000/ (USD79,019/).
The hotel’s daily water supply is 67,000 gallons; 17,000 gallons go to waste due to high level of TDS (Total Dissolved Solid). The hotel operations require at least 60,000 gallons of water per day, thus generating a supply deficit. Through the new RO plant, approximately 10,000 gallons of waste water will be filtered and treated to bring down the TDS level and make the water suitable for use in the hotel’s gardens and urban farm.
Iftikhar Hamdani, General Manager, Ramada Hotel & Suites Ajman, commented: “This new RO plant will save us a huge amount of money as we have to spend almost AED800/ per day to meet the daily water needs, on top of the supply which we receive from FEWA. Apart from the monetary benefit, this initiative entails impact on the precious use of water. We should always think ahead as we might wake up one day without clean water because of our inability to do take actions at an early stage.”
Ramada Hotel and Suites Ajman’s new Reverse Osmosis Plant is supplied by Al Waha Water Treatment Equipment in Ajman. Mohammed Abdel Raouf, General Manager of Al Waha, noted: “We are honoured to be of service to Ramada Hotel & Suites Ajman. The hotel has been a notable pioneer of environmental initiatives and may this new partnership aid them in boosting their efforts and encouraging the community towards the green path.”
