Tunisia Invites Proposals to Build Wastewater Treatment Facility.

Tunisia’s National Sanitation Utility, l’Office National de l’Assainissement de la Tunisie, Announces Plans to Allocate Funds from EBRD and AfDB Loans to Support the Small Cities Sanitation Programme, Phase 1 (PAPC-I), Focusing on Communities under 10,000 Residents

The allocated funds will finance the establishment of a wastewater treatment plant in Bir Ali Ben Khalifa, Sfax governorate, in eastern Tunisia.

The deadline for submissions is July 9, 2024, at 10 a.m. local time in Tunis.

The project entails the construction of a “Turnkey” wastewater treatment plant using the activated sludge process at low load, with tertiary treatment capabilities.

The plant is expected to have a capacity of 1,360 cubic meters per day and handle 600 kilograms of biochemical oxygen demand (DBO5) per day. The project also involves the establishment of a system for transferring treated wastewater.

Participation in the tender is open to natural or legal entities with the necessary technical and financial capacities and references to ensure the successful execution of the project.

The procurement process includes the engagement of specialized companies for the supply, transportation, assembly, and testing of mechanical, electromechanical, and electrical equipment.

Civil engineering firms must possess approval for road works and various networks, meeting specified criteria.

Bidders can participate individually or as part of a solidary or joint group, with a designated leader. If the lead partner is a civil engineering company, it must hold the required approvals for participation.

This initiative underscores Tunisia’s commitment to enhancing sanitation infrastructure and environmental sustainability in its communities.
