Major Project Benefits     
 
The Sulaibiya project brings substantial benefits to the people and country of Kuwait.
 
  • It saves the State the financial burden of huge investments.

  • It curbs marine environmental pollution, as partially treated wastewater is no longer discharged into the Arabian Gulf.
  • It reuses the reclaimed wastewater in a safe manner that preserves the environment.
  • It eliminates the problem of unpleasant odours from the now abandoned conventional wastewater treatment plant at Ardiya. Those odours started to disappear once the operation of the new plant commenced.
  • The project achieves the Government’s strategic objective to reuse treated wastewater and thus create a strategic water reserve for the State of Kuwait.
  • It transforms sludge into natural fertilizer suitable for all agricultural purposes.
  • It delivers fresh useable water at a reasonable cost to the State of Kuwait, which buys the reclaimed water from the concessionaire at the competitive price agreed upon in the contract.
  • The project will provide the State of Kuwait with a fully-functional wastewater reclamation plant free of charge when the concession period expires and the plant is transferred to the State of Kuwait.
  • The State will generate savings of around KD3.2 billion ($11.00 billion) over the lifetime of the concession.
 
Sulaibiya is the first in a series of similar projects in the region through which problems related to the scarcity of water resources are expected to be solved. Similar projects will also be beneficial, as they will reduce the need to build more expensive seawater desalination plants
