Va Tech Wabag, a water technology company listed on the Bombay Stock Exchange, has secured a work order valued at $33.5 million from SEPCO III Electric Power Construction Corporation, informs Business Standard. The contract entails the engineering and procurement (EP) of a 20 million liters per day (MLD) industrial wastewater treatment facility at the Ras Tanura refinery complex in Saudi Arabia, for the treatment of complex effluents.
Wabag will serve as the process and technology provider for the treatment plant, which is being constructed by SEPCO III and developed by Miahona for off-taker Saudi Aramco. According to the company's statement to the stock exchange, the project involves designing, engineering, procuring, supplying, and overseeing the installation and commissioning of the plant.
The project is expected to be completed within 20 months. The facility will use biological treatment, filtration, and reverse osmosis technologies to treat the effluent, with the aim of enabling its partial reuse within the refinery complex.
Wabag’s Regional Head of Sales and Marketing, Sivakumar V, said: "This is another key breakthrough for us in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. This order which is being delivered to Miahona and Saudi Aramco is a further testimony of Wabags technology leadership in the Oil & Gas sector and enables us to further cement our presence in the Middle East Region."
