Published in Saudi Press Agency on 26 - 07 - 2020

The National Water Company (NWC) has started marching towards private sector participation in 114 sewage treatment plants with total daily capacity of 5.1 million m3/day, in implementation of the National Water Strategy 2030 objectives for the water sector through increasing water investments and engaging the private sector in many projects through the coming years.
The company said that it intends to launch the first phase by procuring contracts covering 15 sewage treatment plants with a total daily capacity of 2.5 million m3/day, which is 50% of the total treatment capacity in the Kingdom. A Request for Qualification (RFQ) has been sent out with regards to five long-term operation.
The company said that these contracts provide for four plants in Manfuhah, Riyadh, with a total capacity of 900,000 m3/day; two plants in Hada and Aranah, Makkah region, with a total treatment capacity of 500,000 m3/day; Airport phase-one and Al-Khumrah plants in Jeddah Governorate with a total treatment capacity of 830,000 m3/day; two plants in Wadi Al-Arj, Taif Governorate, with a total treatment capacity of 167,000 m3/day; and plants in Arar, Turaif and Sakaka, Northern Borders and Al-Jouf Regions, with a total treatment capacity of 108,000 m3/day.
The company added that it would send out the Request for Proposals (RFP) for the first contract in 2020 Q3. The other four contracts will be procured subsequently. As well as operations and maintenance the scope of the five contracts will cover rehabilitation, operational improvements and capacity increases for these sewage treatment plants. Additionally, the contracts will focus on development of sludge treatment in line with the environmental best practices, as well as producing high quality treated sewage effluent (TSE) compliant with environmental regulations.
