Sulaibiya Waste Water Treatment Plant Expansion Project
The project is about Engineering, Procurement and Construction (EPC) contract for the expansion of a waste water treatment plant to enhance production capacity from 375,000 cubic meters a day to 600,000 cubic meters per day . This project is located in Kuwait. On completion, the plant will be largest of its kind in the world. The Sulaibiya Wastewater Treatment and Reclamation Plant is a groundbreaking project, not only in the Middle East, where it was the first infrastructure facility of its size to be executed on a BOT basis, but also worldwide as it is the largest of its kind using the reverse osmosis (RO) technique in the reclamation of domestic wastewater. The concession period began on July 7, 2002. The plant was constructed in less than twenty-nine months and the concessionaire is now operating and maintaining the plant until the expiry of the concession period. A Local Development Company is awaiting government approval to go ahead with this scheme. Talks between the Development Company and the client will determine whether the expansion will be configured to treat effluent to the same standard or to lower levels. Invitation to bid for the EPC contract is expected in August 2009, with submission of bids expected by November 2009. An award is anticipated by February 2010. Austria-based ILF Consulting Engineers has been appointed as the technical consultant.
