SATCO has built a solid foundation and well known reputation over the last forty years, which, as a result, created wide references within the region. Therefore, in early 2009, SATCO was invited by Ma’aden Infrastructure Company (MIC), to participate in a tender to provide Facilities Management services in the mineral industrial city known as Ras Al Khair (RAK).
In May 2010, SATCO started the provision of integrated facilities management services for Phase I of Ma’aden Housing Village, constructed on land area of approximately 200,000 m2 to serve 500 residents. Two years later, in June 2012, Phase II of the Housing Village contract was awarded to SATCO with a total capacity of 2,500 residents and designed on land area of approximately 1,000,000 m2 to showcase a modern life style with all required facilities for village residents working for the Ma’aden industrial plants.
This massive mission was entrusted to SATCO for a period just shy of a decade with a total accumulated contract value exceeding $80 million. In terms of Facilities Management at RAK, SATCO managed the equivalent floor space of more than sixty average sized cricket fields.
In September 2019, SATCO signed a contract with Neom Company to Build, Own and Operate (BOO) a Construction Village in Neom for 10,000 residents. Construction works will include several types of accommodation units, indoor as well as outdoor recreational facilities, dining halls, kitchens, laundry facilities and emergency medical facilities to support 10,000 residents. The Construction Village will be equipped with fully digitalized fire alarm system and firefighting system, RO system, potable water network, sewage plant, irrigation water system as well as extensive landscaping areas. Upon completion of the Construction Village, SATCO will provide an extensive list of services including facility management (FM), catering, laundry, housekeeping, cleaning, security, landscaping, operations and maintenance (O&M) as well as outdoor recreational services plus more.
The Neom project is located in Tabuk, Saudi Arabia in the northwest region of the kingdom, extended along with Aqaba Gulf and 468 km of coastline with beaches and coral reefs, as well as mountains up to 2,500 m high, with a total area of around 26,500 sq. km. The initiative emerged from Saudi Vision 2030, a plan that seeks to reduce Saudi Arabia’s dependence on oil, diversify its economy, and develop public service sectors.
