The project calls for the construction of a plant with capacity of more than 25,000 cubic metres a day (cm/d) of water, with the option to expand the plant later to about 34,000 cm/d. The project will also involve the installation of a pipeline between the plant and the industrial city, where all its customers are located.

Kindasa is the first private water company in the kingdom, providing something of a test case for larger independent water and power projects (IWPPs) planned elsewhere. Kindasa is 20 per cent owned by the Bushnak Group, which is also the main consultant on the scheme.
