OVERVIEW

ACWA Power submitted the lowest tariff at 0.53USD/m3 and was selected to develop the desalination plant alongside the Saudi Brothers Commercial Company (SBCC) in Rabigh, Saudi Arabia. Rabigh 3 IWP will utilize reverse osmosis (RO) technology to yield a capacity of 600,000 cubic meters a-day. The innovative design of this plant ensures the highest efficiency, reliability, and availability for any comparable plant in the world. The water output will cater to the water demand of Makkah al-Mukarramah and Jeddah. This will ensure consistent, reliable and steady water supply to the citizens of the two cities and villages, especially during demand peak periods such as the Holy Month of Ramadan and Hajj seasons.

The Rabigh 3 IWP is being procured under a 25-year build-own-operate (BOO) contract and will commence commercial operation in Q1 2022.
