The Company adopted the idea of The Saline Water Conversion Corporation (SWCC) regarding construction of a medium-power desalination plant on floating platforms to provide desalinated water to the Western Region at the time. This unprecedented theme which had neither been tested nor applied in the entire world with this envisaged capacity, was applauded and encouraged by SWCC. Accordingly Rakaa Saudi Power and Water Co. was awarded the first contract for the supply of (50.000) fifty thousand cubic meters of desalinated water per day to be produced by the floating barges. Then Rakaa Saudi Power and Water Co sold part of its stake to a Saudi company and the stakeholders agreed to name their joint company as (International Bowarege Company for Water Desalination Ltd (Bowarege). Now, Rakaa Saudi Power and Water Co own 35% of Bowarege Company, which was established to implement the project of the floating water desalination barges.
Today International Bowarege Company for Water Desalination Ltd owns two floating barges each of them containing independent and integrated desalination plant, with production capacity of (25.000) twenty five thousand cubic meters of desalinated water per day making the total output of the two barges (50.000) fifty thousand cubic meters of desalinated water per day. The two Barges are the biggest floating desalination plants all over the world and they were designed, constructed and operated by Saudi qualified team.
