About the entity

The Saudi Water Partnership Company (SWPC) issued last Thursday the request for proposals (RFP) for the Rabigh-4 Independent Water Project (IWP), a facility that will have a total capacity of 600,000 m3/day.

In November of 2021, SWPC had preselected eight groups to bid for the Rabigh 4 IWP project.

The eight firms/ consortiums:

  • Acciona Agua (Spain)/ Aljan & Brothers Energy Company (local)
  • Acwa Power (local)
  • Cobra Instalaciones y Servicios (Spain)
  • Kahrabel (France/UAE)
  • Marafiq (local)/ Alfanar (local)
  • Marubeni Corporation (Japan)
  • Utico (UAE)/ Mowah (local)/ CRCCI
  • Veolia (France)

The desalination facility is to be designed using reverse osmosis seawater desalination technology and will have a capacity of 600,000 cubic meters of water per day. It will be in Rabigh, 180 km northwest of Makkah, on the coast of the Red Sea in the Western Province of the Kingdom.

The project will be developed under a 25-year water purchase agreement (WPA), which will be supported by a credit support agreement from the Saudi government.

The Rabigh 4 Independent Water Project is part of Saudi Arabia’s program to build sixteen IWPs to service various areas of the country.
