Saudi Arabia seeks technical consultants for STP project

RIYADH, February 18, 2019

Saudi Arabia's Water & Electricity Company (WEC) has issued a request for qualification (RFQ) for technical consultants to undertake a pre-feasibility study and assess project technologies related to small-scale sewage treatment plants (STPs).  

These STPs vary in size from 1,000 cu m per day to 25,000 cu m per day and are located across the kingdom.

The winning technical consultant will be required to support WEC in privatising these small-scale STP projects. WEC said the scope of work includes GIS analysis, preparation of a pre-feasibility study based on selection of site visits besides providing support to the utility company in co-ordination with the relevant water sector stakeholders in Saudi Arabia and local/international potential developers.

The study will include the appropriate treatment technology for treated sewage effluent (TSE) reuse for the initial STPs and future expansion, said the company in a statement.

This study may be used to ensure compliance with standard international public-private partnership (PPP) requirements and procedures, as well as those prescribed by the National Centre for Privatization in Saudi Arabia, it stated.

The prequalified respondents will be announced on February 21, it added.-TradeArabia News Service
