Projects


1-The  Man-made River Project

The  Man-made River Project (MRP) is one of the largest engineering projects of this century.  Our company has been involved in the Engineering and Project Management of this mega project since its inceptition. The  Man-made River Project has been designed and implmented in four systems. Each system represents a separate major project.

 

ANE's staff have been intimately involved in the Engineering and Project Management of the following Systems of  MRP:

  • Sarir-Sirt/Tazerbo-Benghazi System

  • Hasouna-Jeffara System

  • Al Gardabiya-Assdada System

  • Ghadames-Zwara-Azzawiyah Water System



Sarir-Sirt/Tazerbo-Benghazi System

The Sarir-Sirt/Tazerbo-Benghazi System,Phase I of the Man-made River Project (MRP), is designed to supply 2 million cubic metres of water per day by gravity flow from wellfields at Sarir and Tazerbo in the south of Libya to the cities on the coast.  The water flows via two direct buried conveyance pipelines fed from wellfields at Sarir and Tazerbo.  The overall length of the conveyance pipelines is approximately 1,600 km comprised of 4 metre diameter pre-stressed concrete cylinder pipe (PCCP). The length of each pipe is 7.5 metres and the weight approximately 86 tons per pipe.

In addition to the conveyance pipeline referred to above the System also includespipe
very large embankment reservoirs of total capacity of  50 million cubic meters.
There are also 5 Operations Support and Maintenance (OS&M) facilities,
a 90MW gas turbine power station and permanent control and communication facilities. Corrosion protection measures were provided throughout the Project. There are a total of 234 deep tube water supply wells. Two large PCCP production plants  capable  of producing 220 pipes per day were constructed to meet the pipe manufacturing needs of this system and the other systems of the MRP.

 

Hasouna-Jeffara System

The Hasouna-Jeffara System, Phase II of the  Man-made River Project (MMRP), is designed to supply 2.5 million cubic metres of water per day from wellfields at Jabal Hasouna to the Jeffara Plain and to Tripoli on the coast. The water flows  through pre-stressed concrete cylinder pipe of 4 metre diameter of approximately 86 tons weight per pipe under pressures reaching to 26 bar. The overall length of the conveyance pipelines is approximately 1,275 km. The total number of wells is 476 deep tube water supply wells.

In addition to the conveyance pipeline referred to above the System also includes, pumps and flow control stations and Operations Support and Maintenance (OS&M) facilities at East Jabal Hasouna, North East Jabal Hasouna, Ash Shwayrif and Assdada and a Headquarters Building with a Central Control Room and a further OS&M at Bin Gashir near Tripoli. Permanent control and communication facilities and corrosion protection measures were provided throughout the Project.

This phase of the  Man-made River Project was implemented in a very  difficult environment. The pipeline routes through highlands, mountains, valleys and rocky lands and all these have been accommodated during the design stage. All anticipated problems were considered in the design stage where safe, secure and cost-effective methods were adopted to achieve the design service life specified.



Al Gardabiya-Assdada System

The Al Gardabiya-Assdada System, Phase III of the Man-made River Project (MMRP), is designed to connect the Phase I System to the Phase II System allowing 0.98 million cubic metres  per day of water to be transferred between the two systems in either direction. The water flows  through pre-stressed concrete cylinder pipe of 4 metre. This System includes large pump stations at Al Gardabiya and  Assdada with a capacity of  31 megawatts protected by Surge Vessels. The Capacity of the regulating tank at  Wadi Wishkah is 82,000  cubic metre. A permanent control and communication system is also  provided throughout the Project.


 

Ghadames-Zwara-Azzawiyah System

The Ghadames-Zwara-Azzawiyah Water System, Phase IV of the  Man-made River Project (MRP), is designed to supply 250,000 cubic metres of water per day from  wellfields at Ghadames to the Zwara City in the coast. The total number of wells are 106 deep tube water supply wells.

The overall length of the conveyance pipelines is approximately 620 km of 1.6 metre diameter pipe. There are three main line pump stations (PS1, PS2 and PS3) each with 20,000 m3 forebay tank. A further pump station (PS4) is installed on the Haraba branch line with a 70,000 m3 regulating tank. This System also includes three reservoirs of total capacity of 60,000 cubic metres.

At Nalut there is a flow control station with a 70,000 m3 tank and at Azrair a pressure control station.  Permanent control and communication facilities including SCADA are provided throughout the Project.  There are four main Operation Support and Maintenance facilities (OS&M) provided which include living and infrastructure facilities.

Disi- Amman Conveyance System

The Disi-Mudawwara to Amman water conveyance is designed to alleviate the chronic shortage of water in Amman, Jordan by conveying 100 million cubic metres of water per year from 55 wells in the Disi aquifer in the south of Jordan adjacent to the Saudi Arabian border through a 1600mm diameter steel conveyance pipeline 325 km to new and existing reservoirs in Amman.

The company's re-design and optimisation of the system has resulted in considerable saving in capital cost ( approximately 100 million dollars)  to the Client (The Ministry of Water and Irrigation -  Jordan) by a reduction in major structures, optimisation of the conveyance route, reduction in scope from two separate wellfields to one wellfield and other significant savings. Engineering Consultancy services were  provided  to the Client through all pre-contract stages of the project, which was awarded to a contractor on a Build, Operate and Transfer (BOT) basis.

 

Infrastructure - General  Utilities Authority

The Company has  provided engineering consultancy services to the Client for  the provision of supplying water to several cities and locations. The Company's scope of work includes collecting and evaluating data and the preparation of engineering studies for preliminary  and detailed design. The projects covered water supply to many locations and cities around Libya.
