Taboada wastewater treatment plant concession attracts three offers

Three firms have recently presented proposals for Peru's Taboada wastewater treatment plant concession.
Offers were received from Spanish group ACS, and the consortiums Concesión Taboada - comprising the firms Keppel from Singapore and Brazilian Odebrecht - and Agessbio, formed by the Brazilian Andrade Gutiérrez and Chile's Essbio.

All three proposals comply with the bidding rules, according to Peru's Private Investment Promotion Agency (ProInversión).

The treatment plant concession is one of the government's priority projects, and was declared of national interest in a decree issued last December.

The project is part of an integrated plan to treat Lima's wastewater and will treat approximately 60% of the city's wastewater, which is currently disposed of without any treatment into the sea and the Rímac river.

The concessionaire will build, operate and maintain the plant, which will have the capacity to treat 14m3/s.

The 25-year concession will be awarded in the next few days and will require an estimated investment of 1bn soles (US$310mn).
