Major Project Benefits     
  • Save the Government the financial burden of huge investments.

  • Curb marine environmental pollution as no partially treated wastewater would be disposed off in the Gulf.
  • Reuse of the reclaimed wastewater in a safe manner that preserves the environment.
  • Eliminate the current problem of proliferation of unpleasant odors from the now abandoned conventional wastewater treatment plant at Ardiya
  • The Project has a strategic objective that is to re- charge the reclaimed water into the underground aquifer to be a strategic water reserve for the State of Kuwait.
  • Using the plants products from treated and reclaimed water in KOC projects
  • Transform sludge into natural fertilizer suitable for all agricultural purposes.
  • The State of Kuwait buys the reclaimed water from the Concessionaire at a competitive price agreed upon in the Concession Contract.
  • When the Concession Period expires, the Plant ownership will be transferred to the State of Kuwait, free of charge. By then, the total savings to the State will be around KD 5.12 billion ($16 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 could be solved. Similar projects are also beneficial as they reduce the need to build more expensive seawater desalination plants.
