Jordan’s Water and Irrigation Ministry has issued a request for proposals (RFP) to construct a wastewater treatment plant at Kofranja.

The winning bidder will supply, construct, install, operate and maintain a 9,000 cubic metre a day facility, which will include a main treatment unit and sludge treatment unit.

The new project will replace an existing plant at the same site, which will continue to operate throughout the construction of the new project.  

On completion, the flows will be diverted to the new works and the existing process units will be taken out of operation.

The chosen contractor will operate the facility for two years after construction.

The project will be operated out of the Water Authority of Jordan (WAJ), which is part of the Water and Irrigation Ministry. The kingdom’s Government Tenders Directorate (GTD) is handling the tender.

A pre-tender meeting will be held on 14 July and interested parties have been requested to submit any requests for clarification by 25 July. Prequalified companies are invited to submit bids by 10 August.

The project is to be financed with a loan from German export credit agency (ECA) Kreditanstalt fuer Wiederaufbau (KfW).
