Siemens Receives Contract Worth 60 million Euros for a Water Transmission System in Saudi Arabia

With the new 'Shuqaiq Water Transmission System', households in inhabited areas which are mainly in the northern and eastern parts of the country will be supplied with potable water from the Shuqaiq desalination plant on the south-west coast. The contract has a volume of 60 million euros and the pipeline system will start operating at the beginning of 2010.

The order received by Siemens includes supply of the equipment, engineering, supervision of the installation work and commissioning for the entire power distribution system, the automation system as well as fiber-optic cable communication solutions between the pumping stations.

The final customer is SWCC (Saline Water Conversion Corporation), the leading producer and supplier of potable water in Saudi Arabia. The general contractor is a Saudi consortium consisting of the AZIZ Company and Stroytransgas. As early as 2003, Siemens completed a project for AZIZ to supply the city of Riyadh with potable water from Al Hunayy.
