SAWACO Water Desalination is a member of the Saudi Brothers Commercial Group (SBCG) and a cornerstone of water-related activities of this Saudi-based Group. 

SAWACO is the first private water utility established in Saudi Arabia under license by the Ministry of Water in the year 2000, well before IWPP and PPP initiatives were launched. 

SAWACO is certified by internationally recognized quality, environment, health & safety management systems and standards such as ISO9001:2015, ISO14001:2015, ISO45001:2018 & HACCP. 

SAWACO currently owns over 40,000 m³/day of desalination capacity with its multi-plants under 24 hours operation. In addition, a new plant with capacity of 9,000m³/day is under construction. SAWACO has a sizeable fleet of trucks fitted with stainless steel tankers Grade 316-L, conforming to HACCP requirements. The ample storage facility of Post-Tensioned Reinforced Concrete water tanks avoids ion exchange between water and tank, and the inner surface of the tanks is coated with food-grade epoxy. 

SAWACO produces and distributes water for different uses and customer classes. SAWACO assures that quality water surpasses standards set by World Health Organization and Saudi Arabian Standard Organization.  

SAWACO’s line of business includes BOT projects such as the Rabigh-3 IWP SWRO that has a capacity of 600,000 m³/day and was co-developed with ACWA Power (70% ACWA Power & 30% SBCC) and BOO solutions for the provision of desalinated water both public and private sectors throughout the MENA region. In addition, SAWACO undertakes Operation & Maintenance of desalination plants all over the MENA region.
