New Sewage Treatment Plant For Jeddah

The project, which has a design capacity of 500,000 cubic meters per day, will serve the Jeddah city to meet its increasing need.

Saudi Arabia’s minister of environment, water and agriculture Eng. Abdulrahman Al-Fadhli has signed agreements to build the Jeddah 2 Independent Sewage Treatment Plant.

The project, which has a design capacity of 500,000 cubic meters per day, will serve the Jeddah city to meet its increasing need.

A consortium, consisting of the Power and Water Utility Company for Jubail and Yanbu (Marafiq), Amwal Al Khaleej Co. and Veolia Middle East, has won the project from among a number of bidders to implement the project on build, own, operate and transfer (BOOT) basis.

As stated on the UME website, the project uses Nereda technology, which is a sustainable and cost-effective wastewater treatment technology that purifies water using the unique features of aerobic granular biomass. It is expected to start operation at the end of December 2021.
