The Saline Water Conversion Corporation (SWCC), the Saudi agency responsible for seawater desalination, is the world's largest producer of desalinated water, producing 5.9 million m3/d and is on track to increase capacity to 8 million m3/d by 2030, in addition to adding nearly 3 million m3/d capacity of dam-reservoir-well water. It holds the Guinness Book of World Records' title for lowest energy consumption in desalination with 2.27 KW/h/m3. It operates 32 plants, with over 8,400 km of transmission lines throughout Saudi Arabia. Its commitment to sustainability and energy reduction in desalination under Saudi's Vision 2030 is helping drive innovation across the industry. As a leader in desalination, SWCC greatly values its stakeholders and partners who share in its success.
