Owned by the kingdom’s Ministry of Finance, Saudi Water Partnership Company (SWPC) has issued request for proposals (RFPs) for the development of the Jubail Phase 3 Independent Water Projects (IWP), including Jubail-3A and BB with 600,000m3 and 570,000m3 potable water capacity per day.

SWPC has called for RFPs from 10 pre-qualified bidders including individual companies and consortia.

The qualified bidders for the reverse osmosis desalination plant project include: International Company for Water and Power Projects (Acwa Power); a consortium of FCC Aqualia, Haji Abdullah Alireza & Co and Alfanar Co.; Cobra; Engine Middle East; Malakoff International; a consortium of Marubeni Corporation and Power and Utility Company for Jubail and Yanbu (Marafiq); Mitsubishi Corporation; Suez Groupe; Veolia Middle East; and Utico.

An announcement on SWPC’s website said that the desalination plants will be located 18km south of Jubail Industrial City at the Arabian Gulf Coast, adjacent to Jubail Phase 1, Jubail Phase 2, and Jubail RO plants in Saudi Arabia’s Eastern Province.

In May 2019, SWPC appointed a consortium comprising Synergy Consulting, DLA Piper, and Atkins as the advisors for Jubail 3A and 3B IWPs.
