Saudi Arabia’s Minister of Water and Electricity, Abdullah bin Abdulrahman Al Hossein, has agreed a number of contracts to implement a range of water and wastewater schemes in locations around the Kingdom. The total value of the deals has been put at US $137.6 million.

Amongst the contracts announced was a $35 million deal to build infrastructure to carry purified water to the West Al-Qassim region, together with a $53.6 million agreement to build a pumping station and reservoirs. Elsewhere, a $6.5 million agreement was reached for the installation of water meters in Ha’il city and its suburbs, as well as a reservoir and water distribution station for Asir province.

Saudi has been pressing ahead with substantial investment in water schemes in recent months – only announcing two weeks ago that it had reached agreements on $152.8 million in supplementary water projects in the Kingdom.
