Our Business Business Development Initiatives

 TSE Initiative  
 

The objective of the TSE initiative is to effectively utilise the currently wasted resources by creating an environmentally friendly and financially sustainable long term market for treated sewage effluent.

Multiple benefits are achieved from the development of the TSE initiative including:

  • Addressing the water shortage challenges in KSA while conserving scarce water resources
  • Maintaining existing infrastructure & developing new infrastructure according to international best practices.
  • Providing environmental benefits such as net carbon reductions, by indirectly contributing to lesser capital requirements in power/water generating capacities.
  • To capture the TSE opportunity, NWC initially created the TSE Business Unit (TSE BU) to educate the uses, and commercially market the Treated Sewage Effluent (TSE), in a bankable signed contract.

Bulk Potable Water (Key Account Customers) 
 
In order to strengthen one of the 3 pillars of NWC House, relating to the financial viability for the organisation, the BDD was mandated to commence this initiative which involved the identification, regulation and supply of potable water supplies to Key Account customers  from sources including deep wells
  • The Bulk Potable Water initiative also involved the “correction” and  “reclassification” of customers according to their uses  (commercial, industrial etc) and the metering activities of non metered Key Account customer.
  • After a successful start up of the initiative programme and customers discussions, the Bulk potable water initiative was spun off as a separate independent  Business Unit – “KAC BU” in  June/2011 and is further evolving in a very successful manner.

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 environment, the BDD was mandated to identify and develop a long term sustainable model to address the issue of industrial sewage

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 success 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

National Water Polytechnic  
 

In order to harness the global expertise and strengthen the local skillset of the country’s youth in the much promised activities relating to the Water & Waste Water sector and localise the human resource, the idea of setting up a Technical training for NWC was floated.
