SULAIBIYA TESTING LABORATORY

Kharafi National’s Sulaibiya Testing Laboratory was established in 2004 to support the operation and maintenance of the Sulaibiya Wastewater Treatment & Reclamation Plant in Kuwait.

Sulaibiya WWT&RP was constructed to treat domestic wastewater and deliver good quality reclaimed water for use in industrial and agricultural applications. It is the largest plant in the world using the reverse osmosis technique to reclaim domestic wastewater.

Though Sulaibiya Testing Laboratory is an integral part of Kharafi National, it operates independently under its own executive management in accordance with the requirements of the ISO 17025 and the ISO 9001. It carries out tests that conform to the standard methods of water and wastewater testing. To ensure independent and unbiased factual test results that are fully traceable, the laboratory uses an Oracle-based laboratory information management system.

Sulaibiya Testing Laboratory contains state-of-the-art equipment that is maintained to the highest levels of confidence by regular calibration traceable to national and international standards. The laboratory runs continuous quality assurance programs monitored through analytical quality control charts to ensure process and equipment capability, and is accredited to ISO/IEC 17025 by UKAS as lab No. 4208. Click here to view our accreditation certificate and schedule.

Sulaibiya Testing Laboratory provides a wide range of testing services including the chemical analysis, microbiological analysis and ICP/AAS analysis of wastewater, clean water, sludge and sediments.

Though the Laboratory caters primarily to the needs of Sulaibiya WWT&RP, it also undertakes analysis on behalf of a range of third-party clients.

WATHBA TESTING LABORATORY

Wathba Testing Laboratory (WTL) was established in 2011 to bring the standard of testing competence developed at Sulaibiya Testing Laboratory (STL) to Abu Dhabi, UAE in support of the operation and maintenance of Wathba & Saad Waste Water Treatment Plants. In achieving this aim, Kharafi National was granted a multi-site accreditation to ISO 17025:2005 by the United Kingdom Accreditation Service (UKAS) in Feb 2012 and continued till November 2013. Core procedures and many of the test methods in common between both the laboratories and trained and competent personnel were transferred from STL to WTL. This is a testament to the dedication of KN in unifying its Quality Management System and implementing it wherever it operates.

WTL is located at the site of Watba Waste Water Treatment Plant and supports that plant in addition to Saad Waste Water Treatment Plant and providing testing services for other in-house projects, performing chemical and microbiological analyses in support of those plants.
