Saudi Arabia seeks project manager for water projects

14 November 2018
Supervisory consultant is being sought to manage construction of desalination and sewage projects

Saudi Arabia’s Water & Electricity Company (WEC) has invited engineering consultants to submit proposals for a contract to provide project management services for schemes currently under development.

The appointed supervisory consultant will provide overall project construction management, including facilitating all phases of projects to the commissioning, testing and plant commercial operation phases.

Technical consultants have been invited to submit proposals to WEC by 19 November. Bidders have been asked to specify whether they are interested in undertaking a project management role for desalination or sewage projects, or both.

WEC is overseeing a major programme of public-private partnership (PPP) desalination and sewage treatment schemes as part of the kingdom’s efforts to reduce government capital expenditure and integrate the private sector into its infrastructure development programmes.

In 2018, the client received proposals for the planned 600,000 cubic metres a day (cm/d) Rabigh 3 independent water project (IWP) and the proposed 450,000 cm/d Shuqaiq 3 IWP. WEC has also, in recent months, received proposals for the planned Dammam West and Jeddah Airport 2 independent sewage treatment plants (ISTPs), the kingdom’s first PPP wastewater treatment projects.
