NPI recently assisted and supervised the installation of ten water tanks on the west coast of Saudi Arabia. The installation is part of the world’s most ambitious giga-projects: the Red Sea project. The project aims to transform Saudi Arabia into a world-leading tourism destination and extends over 28,000 square kilometers. The designs for luxury tourism destinations on the Kingdom’s west coast include plans for resorts, airports, entertainment centers, and shopping malls. With sustainability at its core, supporting infrastructure emphasizes renewable energy and water conservation and reuse.
In this context, a contract for an onsite landscape nursery that spans over one million square meters was awarded. It will propagate groundcovers, plants, shrubs, trees, and palms to help meet the demand for 15 million plants for landscaping at the destinations. The ten water tanks NPI delivered will be used for the cultivation of water lilies. These exclusive aquatic plants find their way to luxurious shopping malls, wellness centers, resorts, and ornamental ponds.
The metal silos all have a diameter of 10 meters and a limited height of 40 centimeters. This exceptionally low height is extremely suitable for this application as it offers an adequate work height. The metal is double-coated to make the water tanks withstand the demanding climatologic conditions of this area; sweltering and long summers, drought, and salty soil conditions.
The NPI team was onsite at the time of installation to provide technical support. Although the installation of their water tanks is quick and easy, customers can rely on them and their dealer network whenever they wish to receive technical assistance.
