Algerian Energy Company (AEC)has cancelled and reissued two tenders for the construction of two 100,000-cubic-metre-a-day (cm/d) desalination plants at west Algiers (Zeralda) and east Algiers (Cap Djinet) to be built on a build-own-operate (BOO) basis. ‘We have decided to relaunch them to increase the number of bidders,’ says a source at AEC. ‘We don’t want to go to the financing market in such a rush.’ Technical bids are due on 29 September for the new tenders, which retain the same scope as the original proposals.
