Marafiq – the company responsible for utility projects in the key Saudi industrial heartlands of Jubail and Yanbu – has announced that its Jubail IWPP megaproject is now operational.

The facility has a capacity of 2,700MW and produces 800,000 cubic metres of water a day.

“Jubail’s project is operational...before schedule but not in full production. We have just started operations in August this year,” said Sultan Al-Ruhaili, Marafiq’s general manager for technical affairs, according to Reuters.

“We started earlier because of demand in Riyadh. The demand in Riyadh is very high,” he added.

Ruhaili added that a tender for the Yanbu 2 750MW plant would be launched in the first quarter of 2010.
