SINGAPORE, March 1, 2017
Singapore-based Hyflux said one of its subsidiaries has won a $183.4 million contract to build, supply, test and commission seawater reverse osmosis desalination plants at Duba, Wahj and Haql areas, along the Red Sea coast in the western region of Saudi Arabia.
A global leader in sustainable solutions, focusing on the areas of water and energy, Hyflux has operations and projects in Southeast Asia, China, India, the Middle East, Africa and the Americas.
The contract for the projects at Duba, Wahj and Haql areas, along the Red Sea coast in the kingdom's western region was awarded to Hydrochem Saudi by the state-owned Saline Water Conversion Corporation (SWCC).
The desalination plants, valued at a combined estimate of SR687 million ($180 million), will each have a designed capacity of 16,000 cu m per day. The plants will employ reverse osmosis membrane technologies to treat the seawater into water suitable for potable use.
These projects are expected to have a material financial impact to the group for the financial year ending December 31, 2017.
A specialist in water treatment, Hyflux is distinctive in its ability to address the challenges at every point of the entire water value chain, said a company spokesman.
