Salwa canal project : Tender invited
At least five international companies with expertise in digging canals are in the race for the 60km long Salwa canal project.
Saudi Arabia’s deadline for accepting tenders for the proposed Salwa canal inside the territories of Saudi Arabia and alongside the Saudi-Qatari border has been set at June 25
The planned canal, expected to cost SR2.8 billion ($745 million), will stretch from Salwa to Khor Al Adeed, and will be 200 m wide and 15 to 20 m deep, allowing ships up to 295 m long and 33 m wide to navigate it.
