Technology and engineering solutions firm Ayesa has won its biggest ever contract in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, said to be worth €95m (£81.4m)

The National Water Company (NWC) has appointed the Andulasia-based firm to provide consultancy services for the design of 190 cutting-edge, sustainable water projects that will enhance both the quantity and quality of the resource.

This contract is a part of NWC’s commitment to provide safe drinking water and effective sanitation with a planned investment of around €200bn by 2030 into comprehensive water cycle infrastructure, including water treatment and sanitation processes to the delivery of potable water to its population.

José Ramón Delgado, Ayesa’s country manager in Saudi Arabia, said: “This contract marks a historic milestone for the company, representing the largest contract in hydraulic works design for Ayesa to date.

“This contract is an opportunity for transformative growth, positioning Ayesa as a global leader, and leveraging the strengths and experience of our engineering hubs across various locations in Saudi Arabia, Spain, Ireland, Bahrain, and India. This major win establishes Ayesa as a leading engineering and technology services provider in the Middle East.”

In respect of Ayesa’s contract, the Spanish engineering firm will design major hydraulic infrastructure across four regions of the country. This plan includes the construction of multiple water storage tanks to enhance the reliability of the water supply, alongside the development of pumping stations, treatment plants, purification facilities, and widespread distribution networks.

The projected capital expenditure for these projects stands at approximately €5bn. Ayesa will deliver the design of these hydraulic projects as well as provide environmental services such as environmental impact assessment, and ecological assessments to the NWC during the bidding stage for the construction of the infrastructures.

Ayesa says it will leverage the most innovative technologies in water treatment, sustainable materials, and measures to optimize energy usage.
