July 26 (Bloomberg) -- Japan’s Sumitomo Corp. and its partners Malaysia’s Malakoff Bhd and Spain’s Cadagua SA signed a loan agreement with three Japanese banks for a desalination plant in Oman.

Sumitomo Mitsui Banking Corp., The Bank of Tokyo Mitsubishi-UFJ, and Japan Bank for International Cooperation will provide the funds, the Japanese trading company said in a statement today, which didn’t specify an amount.

JBIC said in a separate statement today that it will lend as much as $105 million for the project. The plant, to be completed by October 2014, is expected to cost as much as 30 billion yen ($304 million), Sumitomo said in November when it announced the project.
