Sewage

Call for expressions of interest, deadline 20th April, 2007 for engineering services for the construction, supervision and management of the second stage of the Panama City and Bay of Panama sewage project. The consultant will be needed to help analyze proposals from firms bidding to carry out works for this phase, which will include the construction of a 7 km wastewater interceptor tunnel, as well as a wastewater treatment plant and pumping station in the Juan Diaz municipality, immediately outside of capital Panama City. These works will be awarded in two separate contracts, one for the interceptor tunnel, and another for the treatment plant and pumping station, both slated for awarding by year-end. After these expressions of intent are received, the Ministry of Health (Minsa) will evaluate the proposals and come up with a short list of companies to be submitted to project backer, the Japan Bank for International Cooperation (JBIC) for approval. The JBIC recently signed an agreement with Minsa for a USD167 million loan to fund this phase of the project. The services will last for eight years from the second semester of the year, when construction of the tunnel and treatment plant is scheduled to commence. The tunnel will be a turnkey project so that the diameter, depth and tunnelling methodology details can still change.
