The second phase of Saudi Arabia’s Rabigh desalination plant has been commissioned by Prince Khaled Al-Faisal.

With an installed capacity of 18,000 cubic metres of water a day, the plant has cost in the region of $56m and will supply water to Rabigh and the neighbouring villages of Thuwal and Mastura.
Speaking at the ceremony, Loay Al-Musallam, CEO of the National Water Company, also said that the company was planning to invest more than SR86billion ($23bn) in the next 20 years, constructing pipelines and wastewater treatment centres.

Thabit Al-Lehaibi, deputy governor of the Saline Water Conversion Corporation (SWCC) said: “We have applied the best technology for desalination in this plant, to ensure high quality,” also revealing that the company had set up a 130km pipeline and eight water tanks as part of the plant’s expansion.
