Saline Water Conversion Corporation (SWCC) said its mega development Al Shaqeeq Desalination Plant has become operational in record time and well ahead of schedule (one-third of the specified time). 

It is now feeding 42,500 cu m of desalinated water per day to Asir and Jazan, reported the Saudi Gazette. 

The groundwork of the Al Shaqeeq project was laid in December last year and it got completed in only six months, it stated.
