Saline Water Conversion Corporation receives its Guinness Book of Records certificate

The Saline Water Conversion Corporation has received a certificate from the Guinness Book of Records showing that it holds the world record for seawater desalination.

The government-owned company, which has its headquarters in Riyadh, produces five million cubic meters of water a day.

A confirmation certificate was presented to Abdul Rahman Bin Abdul Mohsen Al-Fadhli, Minister of Water and Electricity, and Ali bin Abdul Rahman Al-Hazmi, the company’s governor, at a board meeting in the city of Al-Khobar on Feb. 9.

Al-Fadhli praised the increase of the company’s production of desalinated water to 5 million cubic meters a day, reinforcing the Kingdom’s position as world leader in desalination development.

He added that it also demonstated the government’s keenness to provide a good standard of life for residents and visitors to the Kingdom. Desalination plays a leading role in providing water security, a fundamental development structure which is one of the most important goals of Vision 2030, he added. At its 2016 launch, Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman described Vision 2030 as providing a roadmap for economic and developmental action in the Kingdom.

The board then discussed its agenda for the meeting, incuding a report on safety, security and the environment and an audit of the last financial year. It also discussed a progress on the drive to strengthen performance culture at the plant.

Research findings on boosting plant efficiency were also discussed, including the push to find new economic technologies to support the desalination industry.
