Deadline extended for Qatar PPP sewage scheme

25 Jun 2020

Seven international groups have been prequalified to participate in the tender for the PPP sewage treatment plant to service the areas of Wakra and Wukair. The sewage treatment plant will have a capacity of 150,000 cubic metres a day.



Qatar’s Public Works Authority (Ashghal) has extended the bid submission date for the planned public-private partnership (PPP) sewage treatment plant to service the Wakrah and Al-Wukair areas in Qatar.

The bid deadline has now been extended a number of times as a result of the restrictions on travel and movement imposed in response to the Covid-19 outbreak.

According to a source close to the scheme, the latest extension has been granted from 24 June into July.

Ashghal prequalified seven groups to participate in the tender.

The seven prequalified groups are:

  • Acciona (Spain)
  • Majis International (Oman)
  • Marubeni (Japan)/Veolia (France)
  • Metito/ Mitsubishi (Japan) / UCC (local)
  • Power China / Mirqab (local) / Redco (local) / Kangda Group (China)
  • Suez (France) / Itochu (Japan)
  • Sumitomo (Japan)

The sewage treatment plant will have a treatment capacity of 150,000 cubic metres a day (cm/d).

The client previously appointed a team of advisers led by UK-based PwC, with the UK firms Mott MacDonald and Eversheds Sutherland as technical and legal advisers respectively.

The successful bidder will deliver the project under a build, operate and transfer (BOT) basis. The water purchase agreement (WPA) will be for a period of 25 years. The WPA will be backed by a sovereign guarantee.
