Saudi’s Marafiq Signs Desalination Plant Agreement, Aswat Says

Sept. 27 (Bloomberg) -- Saudi Arabia’s Power and Water Utility Company for Jubail and Yanbu, known as Marafiq, signed contracts for two projects in Jubail that include a reverse osmosis desalination plant, Asharq al-Awsat said today.

The contracts also involve building 249 residential units for Marafiq employees in Jabail, the newspaper said. It said the RO desalination plant will produce 100,000 cubic meters of water a day and be the fourth in the industrial city.

The contract for the water project was with Saudi Binladin Group and Acciona SA’s Acciona Agua unit, the newspaper said.
