Consortium secures SAR 268 Million Deal for South Dhahran Wastewater Treatment Plant in Saudi Arabia
Drake & Scull International PJSC, a regional market leader in integrated design, engineering and commissioning, procurement, construction and construction management, has announced that a consortium of Passavant Energy & Environment (PE&E), its wholly-owned German water & energy technology solutions provider subsidiary, and Aziz Company for Contracting and Industrial Investment (ACCII), Saudi-based firm that specialises in civil and infrastructure projects, has been awarded a SAR 268 million contract for South Dhahran Wastewater Treatment Plant (WWTP) in Saudi Arabia.
“This is a significant win for the company and a testimony to our exceptional ability in water and energy. Our core technical competency as a leading MEP provider combined with our sector knowledge and expertise in Water makes this project a perfect match for our strengths, where we plan to exceed expectations in the delivery of this project,” said Wael Allan, CEO, Drake & Scull International PJSC.
The three-year contract has been awarded by the National Water Company (NWC) and as per the terms of the agreement, the duration of the project is two years for design and build (D&B) and one year for operation and maintenance (O&M). PE&E’s scope of work includes design, procurement and supply of equipment; installation; supervision; and commissioning of the plant process and related electro-mechanical works.
Upon completion, the plant located in Al Khobar, will treat 70,000 cubic metres of water per day, incoming from different areas within Dhahran Municipality where the water will be received through pipelines at specific delivery points and conditions.
“PE&E is very pleased to collaborate with ACCII to undertake the execution of this important WWTP Project. This plant will be amongst the few in Saudi Arabia that harnesses bio-gas from the treated sludge to generate electricity to cover a major part of the Plant power needs,” said Fares Khatib, Managing Director, Passavant Energy & Environment. “PE&E is capitalising on its own proven pioneering process technology to minimise the plant life-cycle cost and increase the value added to our Client. With PE&E’s global reputation and experience of over 150 years as engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) and process technology providers of WWTP projects, we seamlessly provide environmental friendly turnkey solutions to our valuable Clients. Through such key projects and innovative technology, we continue to strengthen our presence in Saudi Arabia and the wider GCC where we anticipate securing major deals in the future.”
