Peru's private investment promotion agency, Proinversión, has launched the tender process for the Lima and Junín potable water supply concession. Tender documents were made publicly available on 15 February 2014.
The project cost is estimated at US$400 million. The project will be developed on a design, build, finance, operation and maintenance (DBFOM) basis for a period of 30 years.
