SWCC achieves a new Guinness World Record for the lowest water desal energy consumption
Published in The Saudi Gazette on 06 - 04 - 2021

Saline Water Conversion Corporation (SWCC) was recognized by Guinness World Records for setting a global record in reducing energy consumption in water desalination to 2.271 kWh per cubic meter, cementing its position as a pioneer in promoting environmental sustainability, achieved this milestone by adopting innovative technologies that lower the use of power and cost of produced water in the desalination industry.
Guinness World Records stated that it verified the figure in March 2021.
The technology used in the plants is reverse osmosis (RO), which is by SWCC standards and specifications that is uniquely re-engineered to develop supply chains and reduce operational costs while achieving positive financial returns as an outcome of reducing electricity consumption from reverse osmosis plants by to 2.271 kWh per cubic meter.
The new plants are seawater take systems powered by energy recovery techniques and equipped with high-efficiency pumps energy recovery device (ERD).
"We are proud of this milestone achievement featured in Guinness World Records. In line with Vision 2030, the SWCC works to enable local talent in its current and future developmental projects; this initiative covered the full project life cycle utilizing pre-existing competencies and expertise to localize the desalination industry fully," said SWCC Governor Eng. Abdullah Ibrahim Al-Abdulkareem.
SWCC has invested heavily in its engineering and research expertise to expand design innovation and supply high-efficiency, low-energy, and more flexible desalination plants. Its recent efforts resulted in obtaining operational environmental licenses of the 3rd category and ISO 14001 Certificate for the environment.
They implemented several projects and initiatives to showcase their commitment to minimizing environmental impact while reducing the cost of producing and transporting desalinated water. SWCC has significantly reduced gas emissions from its production systems in carbon dioxide by 22% of the total targeted reduction for the Kingdom until 2030.
SWCC increased its production of desalinated water by 64% during the past three years after establishing, launching, and expanding the number of production systems on the Red Sea and Arabian Gulf coasts while applying the highest international standards in its operations in line with the Kingdom's Vision 2030 objectives.
SWCC also registered a unique advanced technical system that raises the brine solution's concentration from 70,000 to 150- 200,000 parts per million. This technology, which won two patents, helps in preserving the environment as bromine is invested in battery manufacturing.
SWCC has a total of 32 desalination plants in 17 locations operated and managed by 10,340 employees with Saudization up to 96 percent and several desalination plants under construction with a total production capacity of up to 3.6 million cubic meters per day. Water security is a key challenge for the country, which has invested heavily in seawater desalination, making the Kingdom the world's largest producer of desalinated water. — PRNewswire
