Saudi Arabia’s Water & Electricity Company (WEC) has received proposals from seven groups for the contract to develop the Dammam West independent sewage treatment plant (ISTP).
The seven bidders submitted prices on 31 July. MEED reported in March that WEC had prequalified 10 groups to participate in the tender.
The groups which submitted proposals are:
- Acciona Agua (Spain) / Al-Rashid Trading & Contracting (local) / Al-Blagha Holding (local)
- FCC Aqualia (Spain) / Nesma (local) / Abdul Latif Jameel (local)
- Mowah (local) / Metito (UAE) / Orascom Construction (Egypt)
- Mitsui (Japan) / Miahona (local)
- Saur (France) / CWC (local) / Tecnicas Desalination (Spain)
- Suez (France) / Al-Khorayef (local)
- Veolia (France) / Marafiq (Saudi Arabia).
The planned West Dammam ISTP will have a capacity of 350,000 cubic metres a day (cm/d).
The project will be developed under a 25-year sewage treatment agreement (STA), under which the sewage capacity will be provided by the National Water Company (NWC). WEC’s obligations under the STA will be guaranteed by a credit support agreement from the Saudi government.
