Saudi Readymix Commences Operations at Wasit
New On-site Factory to Serve Wasit Gas Program

Saudi Readymix completes the setup of its newest on-site factory at Wasit, the second Saudi Readymix on-site factory in the area, and commences operations. The factory is of the highest operating standards and is a Saudi Aramco approved facility to supply concrete to the Wasit Gas Program Project.

Wasit is located 10 km north of Jubail and is the chosen site for the Central Processing and Onshore Facilities, which will be producing 2.5 billion square feet of gas per day once complete. Samsung Engineering Ltd was awarded an LSTK (lump sum turnkey) contract to perform the EPC (engineering, procurement and construction) of two large industrial facilities; the cogeneration and steam generation facilities. The cogeneration plant and steam plant are scheduled for completion in two years’ time.

Saudi Readymix will be supplying the ready-mixed concrete for both facilities. Its on-site factory at Wasit has an operating capacity of 120 m³ per hour and provides several types of concrete for the project.

Saudi Readymix has a network of factories strategically located in various areas throughout the Kingdom and currently operates 10 on-site ready-mixed concrete factories with various capacities ranging from 120 cubic meters per hour to over 400 cubic meters per hour.
