  • Saudi Arabia invites proposals for Buraydah-2 and Tabuk-2 ISTPs

About the entity

Saudi Arabia’s Saudi Water Partnership Company (SWPC) has issued the Request for Proposal (RFP) to the qualified bidders of Buraydah-2 and Tabuk-2 Independent Sewage Treatment Plants (ISTPs).

Buraydah 2 ISTP will have a total treatment capacity of 150,000 m3/day. It will be located near the city of Buraydah (in the Qassim region) in north-central Saudi Arabia, approximately 400 km from Riyadh. 

Meanwhile, the Independent Sewage Treatment Plant Tabuk 2 will have a total treatment capacity of 90,000 m3/day and it will be located near the city of Tabuk in north-western Saudi Arabia. 

The two projects are expected to start operations in the fourth quarter of 2023.

The Expression of Interest tender for the project was issued in January.

Last month, SWPC had pre-qualified five companies/consortia to bid for the projects. The list comprised of:

  • Acciona Agua and International Water Distribution Company (Tawzea)
  • FCC Aqualia, Alkhorayef Water & Power Technologies and Alfanar Company
  • GS Inima Environment and Al Jomaih Energy and Water Company
  • Marubeni Corporation
  • Metito Utilities Limited

Under a 25-year Sewage Treatment Agreement with SWPC, the two project companies to be incorporated to develop each project will treat the entire sewage capacity supplied by SWPC. SWPC’s obligations under the agreement will be supported by a credit support agreement from the Government of Saudi Arabia.
