Saudi Arabia to build aircraft fuselage plant

RIYADH, November 6, 2018

Saudi Arabia's Crown Prince His Royal Highness Prince Mohammed bin Salman has launched a project to build centre for developing aircraft fuselage during a visit to the King Abdulaziz City for Science and Technology (KACST) in Riyadh. 
 
The centre will have one of the largest buildings for developing aircraft in the Middle East with an area of 27,000 sq m with plans to expand it to 92,000 sq m. The centre will have the capacity to manufacture most aircraft structures, whether civilian or military.
 
The Crown Prince also laid the foundation stone for the kingdom's first nuclear research reactor.
 
The other projects launched by the Crown Prince included a solar energy-powered desalination station in Khafji with a capacity of 60,000 cu m per day; two production lines for solar panels and cells; and a laboratory to check credibility of solar panels, to be based in Uyaynah.
