Bahri Announces Trial Operations of KSA’s First Floating Desalination Plant

The Saudi National Shipping Company (Bahri) has announced the beginning of trial operations for Saudi Arabia’s first floating desalination plant, which is located near the Al-Shuqaiq port on the western coast of the kingdom.


The floating barges project, which was designed and built by Metito, required total investment of about SR 760mn ($202.6mn).


The project was delivered on a fast-track basis and covered the design, engineering, construction operation and provision of floating barges for the desalination plants and the power generation supply.


Metito specifically designed the plant taking into consideration mobility and flexibility of sailing the barges to different locations, which will be dependent on the changing water needs across the kingdom.
