The first Aqua-Swirl in Bahrain was installed in the parking lot of the now iconic Four Seasons Hotel. Bahrain Bay is the Kingdom of Bahrain’s first master planned mixed-use waterfront community, situated off the northeast coast of the capital Manama. The $2.5 billion development has a masterplan designed to create a fusion of residential, commercial, retail, tourism, and community facilities and public amenities.
The engineering wonder is built on a reclaimed island in the center of Bahrain Bay.
The project included two Aqua-Swirl AS-6s to return clean water to the bay and reduce flooding. Though rainfall is scarce, large amounts of rain tend to fall at once, creating runoff and often flooding. Having a solution that allows for high water flows was essential. The Aqua-Swirl treats flows up to 178L/s.
“Service is extremely important for this client, so ensuring that runoff doesn’t collect on the car lots was a high priority. No one wants cars flooded at this high-rise,” said Sellam Hmadouch, Aqua-Shield’s Middle-East representative.
