Libya awards wastewater treatment contracts
Britain's Biwater Construction Limited wins three contracts worth €40 million for the turnkey design, supply, installation and commissioning, training of clients staff, and operation and maintenance (O&M) supervision of thirteen wastewater treatment plants. The Municipality of Green Mountain and the Public Works Authority of Shahat, Massa, Gernada-Faydiah contracted Biwater Construction to refurbish and expand the plants as part of the new National Infrastructure Development Programme.
These contracts are some of the first contracts to be let in the wastewater sector under this programme and will be funded by the National Planning Committee of Libya.
All three contracts are located in the Green Mountain Region of Libya which is an area of outstanding natural beauty and is of tourist and archaeological importance. One of the contracts for the refurbishment and expansion of wastewater treatment plant in Beida, the capital of the Green Mountain region, will serve the entire city and the expansion will enable it to serve a population of 100,000.
The second contract is for the design, construction and two years operation and maintenance of nine new compact wastewater treatment plants serving populations of 5,000 to 10,000. All nine plants will be based on Biwater's biCOM range of sewage treatment plants. Construction will be completed in 24 months followed by two years O&M supervision.
The additional contract for the Shahat, Massa and Gernada-Faydiah wastewater treatment plants will be completed within 16 months and consists of two biCOM plants, each serving 10,000 and 30,000 people, and the refurbishment of an existing plant in Massa, near Beida.
