Oman's Haya Water has floated a Request for Qualification (RFQ) notice for the country's first sewage treatment plant (STP) project to be procured under the 2019 Oman PPP Law.

In mid-2019, the state-owned company Water had signed a contract with KPMG for preparing and implementing the PPP framework for its wastewater projects, according to a KPMG press statement in January.

Haya Water said in a public notice that the project involves design, finance, commission, construct, operate, maintain and transfer of a 40,000 cubic metres per day STP in Al Misfah STP and all associated infrastructure; and the design, finance, construct, commission and transfer an 18-km long treated effluent line from Al Misfah STP to Al Ansab STP connecting with existing treated effluent tanks and networks.

15 March 2020 is the last date for collecting documents and 19 April 2020 is the last submission date, according to a public invite.

The January 2020 statement said the Request for Proposal (RFP) is expected to be issued by second quarter 2020 and scheduled commercial operation date would be fourth quarter of 2023. It added that Al Misfah STP is expected to divert all the tanker traffic currently served by the Al Ansab STP.

Haya Water is responsible for the development, execution and management of all wastewater facilities in the country except in Dhofar.
