Drake & Scull International PJSC has announced that a consortium of Passavant Energy & Environment (PE&E), its wholly-owned German water and energy technology solutions provider subsidiary, and Aziz Company for Contracting and Industrial Investment (ACCII), Saudi-based firm that specialises in civil and infrastructure projects has been awarded a SAR268 million contract for South Dhahran Wastewater Treatment Plant (WWTP) in Saudi Arabia.

The three-year contract has been given by the National Water Company (NWC) and as per the agreement the duration of the project is two years for design and build (D&B), and one year for operation and maintenance (O&M). PE&E’s scope of work includes design, procurement and supply of equipment; installation; supervision; and commissioning of the plant process and related electro-mechanical works. Upon completion, the plant located in Al Khobar, will treat 70,000 cubic meters of water per day, incoming from different areas within Dhahran Municipality where the water will be received through pipelines at specific delivery points and conditions.

“This is a significant win for the company and a testimony to our exceptional ability in water and energy. Our core technical competency as a leading MEP provider combined with our sector knowledge and expertise in water makes this project a perfect match for our strengths, where we plan to exceed expectations in the delivery of this project,” commented Wael Allan, CEO, Drake & Scull International PJSC.

“PE&E is very pleased to collaborate with ACCII to undertake the execution of this important WWTP Project. This plant will be amongst the few in Saudi Arabia that harnesses bio-gas from the treated sludge to generate electricity to cover a major part of the Plant power needs,” said Fares Khatib, Managing Director, Passavant Energy & Environment.
