Yokogawa seals Saudi pipeline project supply contract

DUBAI, June 18, 2020

Yokogawa Electric Corporation said its Saudi subsidiary has received an order from Turkish contracting giant Limak Construction to supply the monitoring systems for a key water transmission pipeline project in the kingdom. 
The Jubail-Riyadh water transmission system, owned by the state-run Saline Water Conversion Corporation (SWCC), will be transporting water from desalination plants near Jubail on the Persian Gulf coast to capital city Riyadh. 
It will be one of the largest water transmission systems in the world, capable of transporting 1.2 million sq m of potable water per day. The system consists of a 412 km twin pipeline, one pumping station in Jubail, two intermediate pumping stations, and two tank farms.
As per the deal, Yokogawa will deliver its Sttardom network-based control system, flowmeters, transmitters, and a leak detection system to monitor the pipelines, analytical equipment for monitoring water quality, and its Fast/Tools supervisory control and data acquisition (Scada) software. 
Yokogawa Saudi Arabia will be responsible for engineering, installing, and commissioning these products. 
Delivery will be completed by March 2021, and the pipeline system is scheduled to become operational by the end of that year. 
Limak Construction belongs to the Turkish conglomerate Limak and specialises in large international infrastructure projects. 
Yokogawa was awarded the contract based on its solid track record in the field of water infrastructure monitoring in Saudi Arabia. This is Yokogawa’s first order from Limak.
Yokogawa’s General Manager (Renewable Energy, Power & Water Sales Center) Go Iwata said: "One of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) is to ensure the availability and sustainable management of water and sanitation for all, which is a pressing issue in regions that are seeing rapid industrialization and population growth."
"Yokogawa is proud to be able to contribute to this goal in the Middle East by leveraging our extensive experience in the field of water infrastructure automation gained from projects in over 40 countries, including other major pipelines in Saudi Arabia," he added.-TradeArabia News Service
