Singapore engineering firm Hyflux will design and build three small scale desalination plants along the Red Sea coast in the western region of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.
Through its wholly-owned subsidiary Hydrochem Saudi, a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) was signed with the state-owned Saline Water Conversion Corporation (SWCC) following a public tender.
As part of the agreement, Hyflux will design, build, supply, test and commission three seawater reverse osmosis desalination plants in Duba, Wajh and Haql.
The desalination plants, valued at a combined estimate of SAR 687 million (approximately USD$180 million), will each have a designed capacity of 16,000 m3/day.
The plants will employ reverse osmosis membrane technologies to treat the seawater into water suitable for potable use. Construction of these plants will commence upon finalisation of contracts.
These projects are expected to have a material financial impact on Hyflux pending finalisation of the contracts.
It was in June 2015 when Hyflux secured a contract with the SWCC to design, build & supply a containerised desalination system (read story).
