Saudi Water Partnership Company (SWPC) has invited local and international developers to participate in a prequalification programme for 12 water and sewage projects to be developed under the Public Private Partnership (PPP) model.

According to SWPC, the programme will enable the developers to obtain pre-qualification approval and receive Request for Proposal (RFP) documents for these projects without the need to submit a separate qualification application for each project.

A statement issued by the off-taker said the programme will facilitate and expedite the developer pre-qualification process, give the private sector companies sufficient time to form consortia, and enhance competitiveness of the bids.

The deadline to receive the SOQs (Statement of Qualification) is Thursday, 4 July 2024.

SWPC is offering 5 Independent Water Projects (IWP) with a total capacity of 2.1 million cubic metres per day (m3/day) and 7 Independent Sewage Treatment Plant (ISTP) projects with a total capacity of 750,000 m3/day during the 2024 to 2026 period.
