Qatar’s Public Works Authority (Ashghal) has selected a consortium led by Metito as the preferred bidder for the planned public-private partnership (PPP) sewage treatment plant to service the Wakrah and Al-Wukair areas in Qatar.

The Metito consortium, which also contains Japan’s Mitsubishi and the local CCC, was one of seven groups to be prequalified to participate in the tender.

Final proposals from bidders were received in September 2021, after the bid deadline had been pushed back a number of times as a result of the restrictions on travel and movement imposed in response to the Covid-19 outbreak.

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

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

The seven groups which had been prequalified for the project were:

  • 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 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.
