New Water Desalination Plant for Saudi Arabia
Saudi Arabia’s Saudi Saline Water Conversion Corp. (SWCC) is planning on building a New Water Desalination Plant, according to Arabian Business.
The project is not expected to be complete until 2018, but is in the state utility’s budget for this year.
Once it’s built the plant is said to have a capacity of 600,000 cubic meters per day of desalinated water.
Water consumption in the desert country is increasing rapidly and as a result SWCC hopes to double energy-intensive desalination water production to almost 6m cubic meters per day by the end of 2015.
