Yokogawa Electric Corporation said its Saudi subsidiary has received an order from Turkish contracting giant Limak Construction to supply the monitoring systems for a key water transmission pipeline project in the kingdom.

The Jubail-Riyadh water transmission system, owned by the state-run Saline Water Conversion Corporation (SWCC), will be transporting water from desalination plants near Jubail on the Persian Gulf coast to capital city Riyadh.

It will be one of the largest water transmission systems in the world, capable of transporting 1.2 million sq m of potable water per day. The system consists of a 412 km twin pipeline, one pumping station in Jubail, two intermediate pumping stations, and two tank farms.
