Saudi Water Partnership Company (SWPC) has invited expressions of interest (EoIs) for the Riyadh-Qassim Independent Water Transmission Pipeline (IWTP) project, which on completion, will boast a transmission capacity of 685,000 cu m per day.

Through this IWTP programme, the Saudi government aims to achieve its goals of ensuring sustainable development of the country’s water resources while providing affordable high-quality services, said a statement from SWPC.

It will develop the necessary potable Water Transmission Systems (WTS) network comprising pipelines and interim/terminal storage facilities within the Eastern Supply Group to provide critical connectivity between the consumption centers and the upcoming desalination plants.

According to SWPC, a competitive process will be held to select the developer/developer consortium for the 1,392-km-long pipeline project which will be implemented on a build, own, operate and transfer (BOOT) basis. The deadline for submitting the bids has been set at October 31, stated the utility company.

The winning bidder will provide the entire transmission capacity to SWPC under a 35-year water transmission agreement in bid to boost the Eastern Supply Group, it added.-TradeArabia News Service
