Spanish infrastructure major Acciona said its consortium with Saudi partners Tawzea and Tamasuk has been awarded the contract for financing, construction and 25-year operation of three major sewage treatment plants in Saudi Arabia – Madinah-3, Buraydah-2 and Tabuk-2.  

These new contracts, worth a combined €855 million ($1.02 billion), have been awarded by the state-owned Saudi Water Partnership Company (SWPC).

These are the first BOOT/EPC (Build, Own, Operate and Transfer/Engineering, Procurement and Construction) contracts that Acciona has signed in the area of wastewater treatment in the Middle East.
