A consortium of Passavant Energy & Environment (PE&E), a wholly-owned subsidiary of Drake & Scull International (DSI), and Aziz Company for Contracting and Industrial Investment (ACCII) has won a SAR268m ($71.5m) contract to build South Dhahran Wastewater Treatment Plant (WWTP) in Saudi Arabia.
Awarded by the National Water Company (NWC), the three-year contract includes two years for design and build and one year for operation and maintenance.
Under the contract, PE&E’s scope of the work includes design, procurement and supply of equipment, installation, supervision, and commissioning of the plant process and related electro-mechanical works.
Once completed, the plant located in Al Khobar will be capable of treating approximately 70,000 cubic metres of water per day, coming from different areas within Dhahran Municipality.
DSI CEO Wael Allan said: “This is a significant win for the company and a testimony to our exceptional ability in water and energy.
“Our core technical competency as a leading MEP provider combined with our sector knowledge and expertise in Water makes this project a perfect match for our strengths, where we plan to exceed expectations in the delivery of this project.”
Passavant Energy & Environment managing director Fares Khatib said: “PE&E is very pleased to collaborate with ACCII to undertake the execution of this important WWTP Project.
“This plant will be amongst the few in Saudi Arabia that harnesses bio-gas from the treated sludge to generate electricity to cover a major part of the Plant power needs.”
