Three in for latest Saudi IWP plant

Saudi Water Partnership Company (SWPC) has shortlisted three teams for its Rabigh 4 Independent Water Project (IWP) PPP project.

Out of 14 teams that bid for the project, the following three teams were shortlisted:

  • Acciona and Ajlan & Brothers

  • ACWA Power, Almoayyed and HAACO

  • Engie

Under the plans, private partners will deliver a 600,000 cubic metres per day plant built in the Mecca region, which will utilise seawater reverse osmosis technology.

“The continued interest of leading developers, contractors and lenders is a clear demonstration of its confidence in the kingdom, the water sector and the SWPC procurement model,” the authority said.
