AWT Present and Future
AWT is rapidly building its capabilities in engineering, design, innovation and project management. It is partnering through joint-venture with industry leaders in the field of water desalination and water reuse. It is developing a capacity for O&M and in the future aims to assume a role as developer and equity shareholder of water plant facilities.
AWT draws upon world-class research and development through its established relationship and association with KACST and KAUST (King Abdullah University of Science & Technology). Groundbreaking advancements in water and energy are channeled through AWT's R&D technology-to-market pathway.
AWT’s aspirations are both regional and global although it recognizes that KSA provides immediate opportunity. The Saudi market represents building-blocks for AWT as demand in KSA constitutes a sizable percentage of the world's market share and its experienced HR talent pool enables growth.
AWT welcomes all interested potential partners and stakeholders who share in its vision and mission.
