Shuqaiq 3 water project started operation

Marubeni Corporation has announced that the Shuqaiq 3 water project in Saudi Arabia has started commercial operations. The Project includes the construction, operation and maintenance of the RO*-based desalination plant, which produces 450,000 m³ of water per day—supplied to a population of approximately 2 million. Saudi Water Partnership Company will purchase all water produced by the plant under a 25-year water purchase agreement.

Just as in other Gulf Cooperation Council countries, the demand for water in Saudi Arabia is increasing rapidly as both the economy and population of the country continue to grow. There is also demand for energy-efficient RO-based desalination plants, which are independent and do not require coupling with thermal power generation, reflecting the global trend towards renewable energy.

Marubeni will leverage its globally-accumulated knowledge and experience to strive to establish a sustainable society by providing reliable and safe water services to people living in areas where access to water is scarce.

Marubeni Europe plc and Marubeni International (Europe) GmbH are subsidiaries of Marubeni Corporation, a Japanese trading company. The trading activities include, among others, machinery and equipment.
