Hyder wins Saudi Arabia water PPP role

Hyder Consulting has been appointed client advisors for a major water PPP deal in Saudi Arabia.

The consultant will oversee the scoping, procurement and close of three management contracts covering water and wastewater services in Greater Dammam, Medina and Mecca on behalf of client Saudi Arabia National Water Company (NWC) .

This latest wave of PPPs in the Ministry of Water and Electricity/NWC Strategic Transformation Plan (STP) follows Hyder’s delivery of two Public Private Partnerships for Jeddah working in consortia with CRAI and E&Y in June 2008.

Hyder Consulting director of management services Roger Eyre said: “Saudi Arabia is the largest country in the world without running surface water - and with finite underground water reserves, it is heavily reliant on desalination plants.   

“Now, with Saudi Arabia’s fast growing population, improving water and waste water services is top of the agenda.”
