Saudi Arabia’s Saline Water Conversion Corporation (SWCC) has awarded sustainable infrastructure solutions company ACCIONA and its partner RTCC a $500m contract for the construction of the Al Khobar 2 desalination plant at Khobar.
The facility, which will be ACCIONA’s fourth desalination plant in the kingdom, will be equipped with reverse osmosis technology and a daily capacity of more than 600,000 m³.
The plant will be among the biggest in the country as well as KSA’s largest reverse osmosis plant under the EPC scheme to be awarded in a single shot.
The plant will provide a service to three million people in the area.
In addition to the Al Khobar 2 desalination plant, ACCIONA has three projects underway in the kingdom’s water treatment sector.
These include the Shuqaiq3 desalination plant, which is expected to be completed in 2021, and will be equipped with a photovoltaic plant to reduce internal energy consumption; Al Khobar 1 desalination plant; and the Al Jubail RO4 seawater desalination plant.
