AVK solutions contributing to a Metro system project for the city of Riyadh
AVK Saudi Valves Manufacturing has pre-qualified and approved supplier from RMTC (Riyadh Metro Transit Consultant) under bacs sites. AVK supplied hundreds of fire hydrants, valves and accessories to depots across the city. The Riyadh Metro is a rapid transit system serving the city of Riyadh. It consists of 6 metro lines spanning a total length of 176 kilometres with 85 stations. The project costs $22.5 billion to build, and is scheduled to open in 2019.
The project will contribute to reducing the number of car trips by nearly 250 thousand trips a day, equivalent to 400 thousand litres of fuel per day, thus reducing the air pollutant emissions in the city. It is expected that the capacity of the project will reach 3.6 million passengers a day. After a few years from starting the project it will reach 1.16 million passengers in the beginning of the operation.
