The Saudi National Shipping Company (Bahri) has announced the start of the trial operations of the first floating desalination plant set up near Al Shuqaiq port on the western coast of Saudi Arabia at an investment of SR760 million ($202 million).
This comes following an earlier agreement signed with the Saline Water Conversion Corporation (SWCC).

The project was developed by Metito, a leading global provider of water and alternative energy management solutions, on a fast-track basis.
