“We are very excited about Septech’s entry into Saudi Arabia. We look forward to introducing our latest technologies in water / water re-use, desalination and utilities management expertise to address the country’s growing water challenges. Mawrid Holding’s strategic strength lies in the fact that they have a deep understanding of the marketplace and the related challenges and opportunities that it presents,” said Septech CEO David Heffernan.

Water scarcity is a critical issue that the region is dealing with. According to a report released by Birzeit University in Palestine, the Mena region has five percent of the world’s population and less than one percent of the world’s available water.

Water re-use technology has surfaced as an important solution to this serious threat. According to water research company Global Water Intelligence Christopher Gasson, the water re-use market in Saudi Arabia will be worth as much as US $3.4 billion between 2009 and 2016, making it the largest water re-use market in the world after the United States and China. Furthermore, Heffernan has forecasted that Septech Saudi Arabia’s annual turnover will exceed SR 300 million ($80 million), and anticipates a growth rate between 20% and 30% within two and three years, respectively.
