TYPSA’s success continues in the field of water management in Saudi Arabia. A new contract has recently been signed with the National Water Company (NWC) to provide strategic consulting services to the company’s management to track ongoing programs, support privatization processes and provide technical assistance for development.
In addition, design review and construction supervision services continue for the Riyadh water supply and the city’s four strategic storage tanks, each with a capacity of one million cubic metres.
In Jeddah, TYPSA is also carrying out the design review and construction supervision of water storage for the Jeddah water supply, which comprises two groups of tanks with an overall capacity of one million cubic metres, located in Faisaliyah and Briman. The project includes buildings, infrastructure systems, pumping stations and pipelines connected to Saline Water Conversion Corporation (SWCC) and NWC transmission lines. The same tasks have been commissioned for the works in a large-scale hydraulic programme in Saada, 125 km from the Saudi capital, including water catchment, treatment and distribution.
Other TYPSA assignments include the design to supply industrial water to the new city of Waad Al Shamal, near the border with Jordan and Iraq, from the El Sakaka, Arar and Turaif waste water treatment facilities. This project comprises 500 km of pipeline with a 125.000 m³/day maximum flow, storage tanks with a total volume of 800,000 m³ and a clarification plant to ensure the quality of the water in accordance with the Saudi Arabian standards for industrial use.
In addition, the design of the Harad (Yabreen) – Riyadh water transmission system is also under way, which includes a well field, a 400 km pipeline and a desalination plant for 800,000 m³/d.
