AES Arabia nets industry accolade in Paris

2414 GWI Paris 2018AES Arabia, the Riyadh-based water treatment company, has received the prestigious “Industrial Desalination Plant of the Year” award at the Global Water Awards held in April in Paris

The honour was given in acknowledgement of AES’s achievement in delivering the largest desalination plant in the world for the oil and gas sector, a turnkey 80,000 m3/day sea water desalination plant for the Saudi Aramco Jazan integrated gasification combined-cycle (IGCC) power plant. The facility, located on the Kingdom’s Red Sea coast, was built in accordance with the high technical standards demanded by the oil and gas industry and under rigorous Aramco quality control requirements.   

AES utilised its experienced in-house engineering and in-Kingdom manufacturing capabilities to assemble large portions of the installation off-site, thus significantly reducing the project cost and the delivery time.

AES Arabia has been operating in Saudi Arabia since 1993 and has delivered multiple industrial and municipal projects throughout the GCC area, with strong emphasis on the oil and gas sector, complying with stringent engineering and material requirements.

The company is working closely with Aramco to meet the 70 per cent IKTVA (localisation) target by 2021, which is required to qualify for future Aramco work.
