DUBAI (Reuters) - Saline Water Conversion Corp (SWCC), which operates desalinization plants and power stations in Saudi Arabia, has signed a 1.6 billion riyals ($426.54 million) financing agreement, it said on its Twitter account.
The “bridge” loan will finance projects to improve efficiency at desalination plants Jubail 1 and Khobar 2.
The company plans to double daily production from the plants and save 1.25 billion riyals a year on operating costs.
The government debt management office advised SWCC on its financing options.
