Jeddah: The General Presidency for the Affairs of the Two Holy Mosques has raised the daily production capacity of Zamzam water to meet the growing need for the holy water, especially in the Grand Mosque in Makkah and the Prophet's Mosque in Madinah, using the latest mechanisms and techniques available at the King Abdullah Zamzam Drinking Water Project.
The operational aspects were stepped up in a way to ensure the purity of Zamzam water and its conformity to international standards, starting from the pumping of water from the well to the final stages of packing and distribution to consumers automatically without human intervention.
Director of of the Project Eng. Ahmed bin Omar said that it was decided to increase the number of service providers by more than 100 percent and to operate the project around the clock to meet the needs for the holy water. This will be done according to a distribution mechanism granting two Zamzam water bottles to each individual, with redistributing the same water amount within 15 days from the date of the last distribution.
He explained that the services have been stepped up with the renovation of at least 250 car parking lots to serve the project's visitors, and the provision of about 500 vehicles to carry Zamzam bottles to customers, as well as providing 350 chairs for the customers in the new waiting room.
Proceeding from its keenness to make the holy water accessible to everyone, the project management has allocated an approved carrier in King Abdulaziz International Airport in Jeddah and Prince Mohammed International Airport in Madinah to serve Hajj and Umrah pilgrims so that they can get Zamzam water bottles for shipping from airport lounges easily, Omar added.
