Kuwait launches RfQ for Umm Al Hayman Wastewater PPP Project

The Kuwait Authority for Partnership Projects (KAPP) in collaboration with the Ministry of Public Works (MPW) has launched a request for qualification (RfQ) for the Umm Al Hayman wastewater PPP project.

The project involves the development of a wastewater system with an initial capacity of 500,000 m 3 /day (with an option to expand the capacity by an additional 200,000 m 3 /day) and associated wastewater transmission and sewage effluent networks.

The facilities will be located on the site of the existing Umm Al Hayman wastewater treatment plant in Southern Kuwait, with transmission and distribution systems extending to the surrounding catchment areas.

MPW will enter into a PPP agreement for a period of 27.5-year that includes:

  • build, operate and transfer (BOT) agreement, whereby the investor will be responsible for the design, financing, construction, rehabilitation, commissioning of the wastewater plant in 2.5 years, followed by a 25-year period of operations and maintenance. At the end of the PPP agreement term, the asset will be transferred to MPW; and
  • a 5.5-year design, build and operate (DBO) agreement for the associated wastewater transmission and sewage effluent networks, whereby the Government of Kuwait will finance the capital costs of the assets and the investor will be required to build the networks followed by a 3-year period of operations and maintenance before they are handed back to MPW.

Interested parties must submit their qualifications documents on or before 9 July 2015.
