The National Water Company (NWC) succeeded in completing its projects in Jeddah without any delay or failure. It was able to reduce the troubled projects percentage to as low as zero percent of the total water and wastewater projects underway.
The Senior Director of the West Sector, Eng. Muhammad bin Saleh Al-Ghamedi said that the well-trained national staff of the company worked throughout last year on improving the execution of Makkah region projects in general and Jeddah projects in particular. They enhanced the level of execution, turning the two-year-old 30 percent plus troubled projects to a nil.
"Furthermore, NWC, in line with the Vision 2030 that targets achieving high quality rates in the service sector, implemented a modern mechanism to increase the pace of execution, resulting in a rise in the number of regular and completed projects that are currently in operation, serving both citizens and visitors of the region."
Al-Ghamedi added that the company is constantly working on boosting the level of its services and increasing implementation efficiency in Makkah region to achieve the sought objective of cities without troubled projects. Additionally, the massive support of Prince Khalid Al-Faisal, Governor of Makkah and Advisor to the Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques; his Deputy, HH Prince Badr bin Sultan; HE Eng Abdulrahman Al-Fadley, Minster of Environment, Water and Agriculture and Chairman of NWC; and Eng Mohammed Al-Mowkley, CEO of NWC, has had the most impact on the realization of this achievement.
Over the recent few months, the water company was able to complete 14 key projects in Jeddah, reducing the environmental issues caused by wastewater overflows, as well as connecting new districts to the water network. NWC is currently working on other 47 projects worth SAR3.1 billion comprising seven water and 40 wastewater projects, which upon completion would improve the standard of services in the Western Sector.
