As the World Water Summit and an essential event in the industry, the 2023 Global Water Summit took place in Berlin and had the presence of Tedagua, which received the distinction for its active role in the development of the TAIF wastewater treatment plant.
The project, located in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, holds great strategic importance as it is the first to become operational under the public-private partnership (PPP) model in Saudi Arabia.
Luis Miguel Arauzo, Tedagua's commercial director, received the award at a leading event in the water industry that attracts major players from the industry, government, and international water companies. It offers an opportunity to analyze the evolution of the water market and share ideas.
Tedagua and Tawzea have built a wastewater treatment plant with a capacity of 100,000 m3/day (expandable to 270,000 m³/day) in the city of Taif. In addition to its innovative design and incorporation of cutting-edge technologies, the project has gained strategic significance as the first facility to become operational under the public-private partnership (PPP) model, a vital plan for achieving Saudi Arabia's 2030 Agenda.
This is a strategic project in the region as it is the first wastewater treatment plant in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia under the BOOT (Build-Operate-Own-Transfer) modality to reach the operational phase without delays in the construction phase.
The project site includes a 21-hectare green space surrounding the plant to support the "Saudi Green Initiative" and contribute to Saudi Arabia's path towards achieving net-zero carbon emissions.
