Alucor is pleased to announce its recent engagement for mechanical, electrical, and instrumentation installation services for one of Saudi Arabia's most significant Seawater Reverse Osmosis (SWRO) Desalination Projects. This SWRO Desalination Plant, with an impressive daily capacity of 600,000 cubic meters, is set to become one of the largest desalination facilities in the Kingdom.
The project involves the transformation and replacement of the existing Independent Water and Power Plant (IWPP), transitioning from an energy-intensive power generation and thermal desalination facility to a state-of-the-art SWRO desalination plant, supported by solar power. This conversion is poised to yield a substantial positive environmental impact, with an estimated annual reduction of nearly 45 million tons of carbon dioxide emissions and conservation of 22 million barrels of light crude oil.
Alucor's seasoned project management and construction teams will be dedicated to the successful execution of this project, spanning approximately 18 months, with an unwavering commitment to safety and quality. We will deploy innovative construction methodologies and rely on our suite of proprietary construction management software to meet the project's objectives and effectively manage cost and schedule risks.
This project represents one of several desalination plants that Alucor has played an integral role in bringing to fruition over the past decade in the region. At Alucor, our steadfast mission is to continually support the escalating need for clean water in the region, all the while leaving a positive mark on the communities we serve.
