Shuqaiq Phase 3 Water Transmission System, Saudi Arabia

The Shuqaiq WTS is one of the most complex water transmission systems in the Kingdom: on its route from the Shuqaiq 3 desalination plant on the Red Sea coast, the pumped water has to overcome a positive gradient of more than 2000 m as well as cut through several mountains by means of tunnels; hence, converting this project is an exceptionally challenging hydraulic and tunnelling engineering exercise.

AFRY has a long-standing relationship with SWCC going back more than 30 years. As one of the world's leading desalination and water transmission engineering companies, AFRY is proud to support SWCC in this important and vital project that will transport the required water needs to the people of Majardah, Abha and Samta.
