Egypt Reopens Bid for Wastewater Facility

Egypt has re-issued a tender for a wastewater treatment plant under its public-private partnership programme.

The pre-qualifiers for a 20-year contract to design, fund, build, operate and maintain the Abu Rawash plant in south Cairo were published in the state-run al-Ahram newspaper.

The bid for the plant, which has a capacity of 1.2 million cubic metres a day, was previously announced in December last year.

The closing date for the submission of tenders is 21 November, according to Reuters.

Egypt's Trade Minister Rachid Mohamed Rachid said Egypt is eyeing EGP50bn ($8.6bn) of infrastructure projects over the next 18 months.
