A company based in Cape Town scored a R5 billion contract to design, build and operate a desalination facility in Saudi Arabia.

The contract was awarded to GrahamTek by The Saline Water Conversion Corporation (SWCC).

SWCC controls about 40% of the world’s desalination plants, and produces 6 billion litres of water for Saudi Arabia every day.

The Money Show’s Bruce Whitfield interviewed GrahamTek CEO Julius Steyn.

Julius Steyn, GrahamTek

We don’t have a contract in Cape Town at this moment…

Julius Steyn, GrahamTek
