A request for qualification (RFQ) has been issued by the Saudi Water Partnership Company (SWPC) for the development of the Jazan small sewage treatment plants (SSTP). The project is said to have a 104,500cu/m per day processing capacity.
According to a statement, the Jazan Cluster comprises 17 small plants with sizes ranging from 1,000cu/ m per day to 15,000cu/m per day, together with associated collection networks of 1,500km (with lengths ranging from 7km to 415km).
The main indicative plant features are expected to include the influent connections, tanker discharge points, all by-passes, inlet works and primary, secondary and tertiary treatment, pumping facilities including all the associated buildings, civil, structural, mechanical, electrical supply, control and instrumentation infrastructure, said the statement from SWPC.
A total of 46 companies including 27 Saudi firms, as part of 38 consortia, have expressed their interest in the Jazan SSTP project, the firm said.
Following the tender bid, the winning group, through a project company to be incorporated, would develop the SSTP project on a build, own, operate and transfer (BOOT) model, under a 25-year Sewage Treatment and Collection Network Implementation Agreement with SWPC. For the collection network, the project will be approached on a design, build, finance and transfer (DBFT) model, the statement explained.
KPMG Al Fozan & Partners have been appointed as lead and financial advisors, while Jacobs Engineering Group (CH2M Saudi Limited) will be the technical advisor, and Amer Al Amr Law Firm is the legal advisor.
