In March, YLP members were invited to attend a tour of the Saudi Airlines Plant, a private desalination project owned and operated by Moya Bushnak and Kindasa Water Services. The event included presentations that gave a better understanding on Reverse Osmosis technology. It also focused on encouraging industry leadership and entrepreneurship by giving a commercial explanation about the industry.

The plant tour was conducted by Ibrahim Bushnak (CEO) and Mohammed Saud (CTO) starting from the water intake area until the final permeate is pumped to water tanks. The objective of the tour was to give a hands-on explanation of RO water desalination and the production challenges that a private water operator in KSA faces.
