Siemens technology is deployed in a seawater desalination plant in Saudi Arabia.
Siemens has received a new order from a sector unknown in our country: the German company will equip a new water desalination plant in Saudi Arabia with its technological solutions. The Shoaiba 5 plant can be completed by 2023 and will be capable of cleaning six hundred thousand cubic meters of water per day. This is about 400,000 to 450,000 cubic meters of water for Budapest’s drinking water needs (the capital city and its catchment area use 400,000 to 450,000 cubic meters of water per day). is one and a half times that, which will serve 1.2 million people in the future in the cities of Jeddah and Mecca.The new project is the tenth seawater desalination facility in the region to be implemented using Siemens technology.
Siemens supports the implementation of water desalination plants with membrane technology, process instrumentation, measurement technology, energy distribution, network communication, software, and automation solutions. In addition to the Arab region, the German company deals with such projects in Israel and Spain, and sees additional market opportunities in India, China and the United States.
