09 December 2012

Industrial wastewater treatment plant will have capacity of 25,000 cubic metres a day

The Royal Commission in Jubail has invited companies to submit bids for the contract to build an industrial wastewater treatment plant (IWTP) at the Ras al-Khair Industrial City.

Contractors have until 26 January 2013 to submit bids for the tender. The IWTP will have a capacity of 25,000 cubic metres a day. The contract will involve engineering design works, project management, procurement and construction of the plant.

The project is the latest of a number of infrastructure contracts that the commission has tendered for the Ras al-Khair Industrial City.

In October, the commission invited contractors to submit bids for the contract to build a sewage treatment plant at Ras al-Khair Minerals Industrial City. The sewage treatment plant will have an initial capacity of 8,333 cubic metres a day, which will be expandable to 12,500 metres a day. The plant will contain two treated sewage storage (TSE) tanks with a capacity of 9,000 cubic metres each and a TSE pump station.

The commission has been allocated an area covering 94 square kilometres in Ras al-Khair, which is being developed mainly to accommodate industries being set up by the Saudi Arabian Mining Company (Maaden).
