A first PPP project in sewage treatment

Our CEO Bart Goedseels received the honouree trophy for the Waterleau contribution to this ground-breaking project. Taif’s ISTP with a capacity in phase 1 of 100 MLD is the first project of its kind (PPP in sewage treatment) in Saudi Arabia obtaining Commercial Operation. A goal that was achieved in only 22 months from contract signature date. A record in the region and possibly also worldwide.

Waterleau would like to thank our Saudi partner International Water Distribution Co. (Tawzea), its CEO Mohammed Halawani, its business development manager and deputy General Manager Paulo Resende and its project manager Mesfer Alzahrani for the trust and excellent collaboration which resulted already in the award of 3 new ISTP projects for the cities of Madinah, Buraidah and Tabuk totalling an additional 440 MLD (Million Liter per Day) plant. The water of all these plants will undergo a tertiary treatment and will be used for irrigation in the respective regions and contribute to a better life for the people in the respective cities.
