Understanding the impacts of our diverse operations and our commitment to environmental protection drive us to integrate sustainability into all aspects of our projects. This perspective has opened many possibilities for Marafiq starting with the primary supplier of water and electricity in the Royal Commission Industrial Cities.
Our diverse range of utility services in Jubail and Yanbu facilitated the growth of the power, water, and gas sectors across the Kingdom. As an industry leader, we are proud to extend our operations in Ras AlKhair Industrial City (RIC) and Jazan City for Primary and Downstream Industries (JCPDI) to further incorporate sustainable practices into our distribution network.
As we diversify our models, our growth has focused on elevating the living standards of our communities, improving economic conditions, and introducing advanced technologies in the power and water sectors. In light of this approach, Marafiq set up a joint venture with Veolia Middle East and Al Amwal Al Khaleejiah Al Thaniya to bid for Jeddah Airport II Independent Sewage Treatment Plant (ISTP) Project. The Group successfully acquired the project on February 25, 2019 and has already started its construction phase.
This project will assist in increasing the water treatment capacity in the region with the development of a new-generation wastewater treatment plant. The turnout will reach 500,000 m3 per day once it becomes operational.
Another milestone for Marafiq in the pursuit of sustainable solutions is the long-term partnership with the Saudi Water Partnership Company (SWPC) offering compensation for treating a high influx of wastewater for 25 years under the Sewage Treatment Agreement (STA).
Marafiq has been recognized as the lead developer for independent water and wastewater treatment projects by the SWPC and for water and cogeneration projects by Saudi Aramco. The project is set to open new horizons for the company leading to international partnerships and new ventures as we continue to implement sustainability initiatives at Marafiq.
Marafiq is at the center of providing integrated utility
services to the residential and industrial sector in the
Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.
