Alkhorayef Water and Power Technologies (AWPT): Performance driven

Despite the great wealth the oil reserves that lie beneath the sands of the Arabian Peninsula have bestowed upon the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, it is, in fact the deserts themselves that have shaped the character of its inhabitants since time immemorial. Now, the determination and resourcefulness that has enabled countless generations to survive and even thrive in this harshest of environments is being harnessed to shape a future where oil will no longer be the mainstay of the economy.

One company that not only embodies these traits but whose very raison d’etre is to help the Peninsula’s inhabitants cope with its scarce water supply is AlKhorayef Water and Power Technologies (AWPT). A part of diversified manufacturing and commercial group of companies, Alkhorayef Group set up in 1957 to supply the Kingdom’s farmers with water pumps, agricultural, irrigation and well-drilling equipment. AWPT has subsequently developed into Saudi Arabia’s leading Water and Wastewater Operations and Maintenance (O&M) and Engineering, Procurement and Construction (EPC) service provider.

With a client base that includes the Ministry of Environment, Water and Agriculture and the National Water Company as well as several other major governmental, semi-governmental and private clients, AWPT is currently responsible for the efficient full scale operation of over 25% of Saudi Arabia’s water and wastewater infrastructure and plays an indispensable role in meeting the basic needs of more than fifteen million inhabitants spread over 40 towns and cities. Its activities range from turnkey execution to full scale operation and maintenance of complete value chain water and wastewater components including water treatment plants, sewage treatment plants, industrial wastewater treatment plants, desalination plants, water wells, dams, Storm, water and sewage networks and others. 

Our position as a market leader owes much to the sustainable operational philosophy that we have adopted, and that philosophy is built on our strong code of ethics, our performance-driven management and our in-depth expertise. 

Our clients keep us accountable for the high quality, new technologies and operational excellence that we deliver, and this has made us the go-to turnkey service provider in this field. We approach each project on an individually customized basis, because we understand that every system must be designed specifically for its application in order to meet the specific needs of our clients and customers.

In a move that mirrors the kingdom’s wider diversification and privatization ambitions, AWPT successfully partnered and executed many high profile projects with several global market leaders in the water and waste water sector, placing AWPT in pole position to help the Kingdom’s government effect another of the central tenets of the Vision 2030, by actively integrating international industry leaders with AWPT local expertise to pursue and develop public-private partnerships, concessions, BOT, BOO, and other contract schemes to implement privatization of green and brownfield independent sewage treatment plants (ISTP), desalination plants, utilities concessions and distribution systems. This initiative acts as one of the building blocks for the transformation of the Saudi economy and providing ideal knowledge transfer platform to build local capacity. 

With its high credit ratings, political stability and the requisite regulatory platform, the kingdom is a fertile ground for proponents of development and many have already shown considerable enthusiasm for its potential; and AWPT is increasingly the partner of choice when it comes to water and power.

We strongly believe in the interdependency and integration between the knowledge transfer capabilities we have accumulated through our experience partnering with international companies and our deep knowledge of the local markets. In terms of local talent development, we strive to recruit more young Saudi talent and invest in providing long-term careers for them. Saudization is integral to our responsibility towards the country, the community and to build our engineering capacity and know-how here. It is key to the success of the country in the future, and we play our role.

Our strategic goal for the future is to maintain our lead by continuing to expand our market share and formulate strategic partnerships with governmental and international stakeholders. We are actively participating in several BOT, BOO, and concession projects for this year and to continue strongly in the years ahead. Our focus is to further cement our leadership in the market and to transport Alkhorayef Water and Power Technologies into a major developer in the region.
