Saudi Arabia is planning to partner with the private sector to deliver 3,500 kilometres of new water transmission lines that will distribute more than 4 million cubic metres a day of desalinated water, requiring a total investment of $16bn.
The projects are the first water transmission PPP projects in the Middle East, and will be the first water transmission schemes globally to be tendered as separate concession contracts without being bundled along with a water supply project such as a reservoir or production plant.
Energy & Utilities reported in February that the newly established Water Transportation and Technology Company (WTTCO) had signed a management service agreement with the Saline Water Conversion Corporation (SWCC), the kingdom’s desalination provider.
The WTTCO was established in November to lead the programme to expand the country’s water pipeline infrastructure through investment from the private sector.
