TURKEY: Aegean wastewater awarded

04 October 1996

A $52.8 million contract for a large wastewater scheme to serve touristic areas on the Aegean coast was expected to be initialed on 27 September with a venture of Germany's Lurgi, Israel's Tahal and the local Unuvar Insaat Sanayl. The project is for a grouping of the municipalities of Kusadasi, Davutlar and Guzelcami called Kus-atak.

The original low bidder was a venture of the UK's Biwater International, the local Tekser, and Denmark's Semco (MEED 19:7:96). However, its bid was ruled out by Kus-atak along with that of another bidder, a venture of Germany's Otto and the local M Riza Akkaya. Tender evaluation was carried out for Kus-atak by the local Ulker with the assistance of its partner, the US' Mann & Lovell.

Key components of the turnkey project including design, construction and operation for one year are:

a sewage collection system consisting of 32 kilometres of collector main plus pumping stations; a sewage treatment plant to serve the needs of the growing population up to 2005, but designed to cater for future population growth up to 2020; a 1 5-kilometre-long sea outfall.
