SWCC to partner with Japan’s NEDO on desalination project

The Saline Water Conversion Corporation (SWCC) of Saudi Arabia, and New Energy and Industrial Technology Development Organisation (NEDO) of Japan, are to build a reverse osmosis plant in Saudi, reports Saudi Gazette.

The deal was authorised by Saudi’s Council of Ministers on 26 September 2017, among a raft of other unrelated measures.

The project will include companies that were involved with NEDO’s Mega-ton Water Project, which aimed to reduce the consumption of energy and chemicals in desalination processes, and thus to reduce costs.
