SWCC secures Sepco to complete Yanbu project

Saudi Arabia’s Saline Water Conversion Corporation (SWCC) has secured Sepco III Electric Power and Construction Corp of China to complete phase three of Yanbu power and water project, reports Reuters.

Work on the project halted in January, when SWCC and engineers Samsung Engineering fell out over project changes.

Construction work is about 60 per cent done; when complete, the power and water complex will have capacity to produce 2,500 MW and 550,000 m3/d of potable water.

GE Water is the technology provider.
