Hydrochem Saudi, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Hyflux, signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with the state-owned Saline Water Conversion Corporation (SWCC) to develop three desalination plants in Saudi Arabia.
Under the MoU, the firm will design, build, supply, test and commission three seawater reverse osmosis desalination plants in Duba, Wajh and Haql, along the Red Sea coast in the western region of Saudi Arabia.
With a combined cost of SAR687M (about $180M), the plants will each have a designed capacity of 16,000 cb m of water per day.
Construction work on the facilities will begin once the contracts are finalised.
