Business Development Initiatives Industrial Waste Treatment

Industrial Waste Treatment  

In order to address this important and ever evolving subject of Environmental protection and to meet its growing standards, while providing to the country and its citizens a healthy, safe and sustainable environ​ment, the BDD was mandated to identify and develop a long term sustainable model to address the issue of industri​al sewage in areas outside the MODON operated industrial cities.


This initiative involves the commercialisation of a “Pilot”,newly constructed and commissioned  industrial waste water treatment plant , built by NWC during 2012. This plant is located in Jeddah which has a total capacity of 50,000 m3/day half of which is designed to handle the industrial waste


As a pre-cursor to this initiative, the BDD su​​​ccess in 2012 includes:

    • Assisting the JCBU to implement and enforce a tariff structure for the industrial influent, both from truckers and network   connections.
    • Collection of the tariffs since 2012.
    • Receipt of actual revenues of SAR 2.8 mil  during 2012 related to the acceptance of tankered industrial waste


Business Privatisation Initiative (BPI): NWC inline with the BPI, proposes to privatise the Industrial Wastewater Treatment Plant ( IWWTP ) located in Jeddah, by granting a long term concession to use IWWTP assets in collaboration with local & international  private sector partner ( PSP ) of repute, with technical and operational expertise, for value. This plant along with certain other related assets will be concessioned to a JV, where NWC will be a shareholder.

Currently, the KPMG led consortium of consultants are finalizing the processes and parameters to obtain necessary approvals and  implement this initiativ​e successfully.​​​​​​​
