CAIRO: Saudi-based ACWA Power has submitted a bid to develop the Amaala Utilities Public-Private Partnership as part of the Amaala giga-tourism project in Saudi Arabia, reported Zawya.
ACWA Power has been going strong with bids on many projects, such as a solar photovoltaic independent power plant project in Uzbekistan, an independent water plant project in Saudi Arabia, and many more.
While the prolonged war has caused disruptions in the project's progress, ACWA said it is confident that its work will experience only a very minor delay.
