RFQ issued for Jeddah Airport 1 & 2 Independent Sewage Treatment Project

By Davis Thattil | Mar 29, 2018
Water & Electricity Company (WEC) has issued the request for qualification (RFQ) for its planned Jeddah Airport 2 independent sewage treatment project (ISTP). The planned Jeddah Airport 2 ISTP will have a treatment capacity of 500,000 cubic metres a day (cm/d), and will be located adjacent to the existing 350,000 cm/d Jeddah Airport sewage treatment plant (STP).

The project is likely to include the development of the greenfield Jeddah Airport 2 sewage treatment plant (STP) under a public-private partnership (PPP) model, in addition to the acquisition, refurbishment, operation and transfer of the existing 350,000 cm/d Jeddah Airport STP. The last date of Statement of Qualification (SOQ) submission is 15-March-2018.

The Jeddah Airport 2 project is the second major STP that the kingdom is planning to proceed with under a public-private partnership (PPP) model. For the first project, WEC is planning to oversee the development of a 330,000 cm/d ISTP in Dammam. The project will be developed under a 25-year sewage treatment agreement (STA), under which the sewage capacity will be provided by the National Water Company (NWC).

WEC had received prequalification entries from 15 companies for the planned Dammam plant. For both projects, the successful developer will develop the project/bundle under a 25 year STA with WEC, under which the sewage capacity will be provided by NWC.

The advisory team working on the Dammam and Jeddah Airport 2 ISTP projects will be led by Japan’s Mizuho Bank, financial adviser, and will also include UK-based Atkins, owned by Canada’s SNC Lavalin, technical adviser, and US-based law firm White & Case as legal adviser.
