Shuqaiq II desalination plant ahead of schedule

The US$ 1.87 billion Shuqaiq II Independent Power and Water Project (IWPP) in Saudi Arabia will be completed before May 2010, the date scheduled for commercial operation.

Mitsubishi Saudi Arabia, which is EPC contractor for the construction consortium that also includes ACWA Power and Gulf Investment Corporation, told Arab News on 10 February 2010 that the project was ahead of schedule and had been over 93% complete on 25 December 2009.

The 20-year BOO project, which includes a 216,000 m³/d reverse-osmosis desalination plant and a 1,020 MW oil-fired power plant, is being built for the Shuqaiq Water & Electricity Company to serve the cities of Abha and Jazan.
