Aces completes marine GI for Saudi reverse osmosis plant

Aces Jeddah and Aces Khobar have successfully completed the marine geotechnical investigation for a reverse osmosis plant in Shoaiba, Saudi Arabia.

The work included drilling six boreholes to a depth of 10m below seabed, for the Shoaiba power and desalination plant, an oil-fired combined cycle gas turbines  power and desalination complex on the coast of the Red Sea, about 120km South of Jeddah.

The firm conducted extensive laboratory testing including sieve analysis and classification, unconfined compressive strength and direct shear, as well as detailed environmental testing of the soil and water samples.

The project used the marine jack up pontoons and rotary drill rigs available in the Aces Saudi Arabia fleet.

When completed the plant will be one of the world’s largest fossil fuel power plants, and the world’s third largest integrated water and power plant.
