$203m Floating Desalination Project Operation Started


A Saudi-based provider of logistics and transportation services, Bahri, has started trial commissioning of the first floating desalination plant under its SR760 million ($203 million) deal with Saline Water Conversion Corp.(SWCC), says an article published in Arab News.

About the project

The plant is located near the port of Al Shuqaiq on the Western coast of the Kingdom, Bahri said in a bourse statement on Sunday.

Signed in 2019, the deal involves establishing three floating plants, to supply and transfer desalinated water from the stations to desalination tanks.

Each station will have a capacity of 50,000 cubic meters per day with a total capacity of 150,000 cubic meters a day. 

Bahri said the project is expected to be finalized by the fourth quarter of 2022 and attributed the delay in commercial operations to COVID-19 constraints.
