Saudi Water Partnership Company S.M.L.L.C (SWPC) has invited the submission of expressions of interest (EOL) in respect of the potential development of an Independent Water Project (IWP) to be designed using Reverse Osmosis seawater desalination technology.
The desalination plant will be located in Ras Mohaisen, 300 km south of Makkah, on the coast of the Red Sea in the Western Province of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia (KSA).
Power supply to the IWP will be provided from the Saudi Electricity Company’s high voltage network and is to be constructed with a 300,000 m3/day potable water capacity and will include the desalination plant and all associated infrastructure and facilities.
SWPC intends to conduct a competitive tender process to select a developer (or a developer consortium) for the development, financing, procurement, implementation, operation and maintenance of the project.
The successful bidder, through a project company to be incorporated, would develop the project and sell the entire capacity and output to SWPC under a 25year concession pursuant to a Water Purchase Agreement (WPA).
SWPC’s obligations under the WPA will be supported by a credit support agreement from the government of the KSA.
Interested parties should express their interest to participate in the tender process by no later than (5th November 2020) and submit their EOIs in electronic format (in PDF) to:
Mr. Khaled bin Zwaid AlQureshi CEO: firstname.lastname@example.org
