Brazil's São Paulo state utility Sabesp (Bovespa: SBSP3, NYSE: SBS) has called a 9.8mn-real (US$6.28mn) tender aimed at expanding the sewerage system in the city of Itapecerica da Serra, a company spokesperson told BNamericas.
"As the project is part of our Alto Tietê environmental sanitation program which has received a US$100mn loan from the World Bank's International Bank for Reconstruction and Development [IBRD], the competition is open to international companies as well as consortiums," the spokesperson said.
The project entails building a sewerage system in the Jardim Branca Flor neighborhood, including a 150hp wastewater pumping station, 4.29km of pipeline, and 1.69km of trunk collectors. The work should be completed in 21 months.
Interested companies or consortiums may request clarifications until August 28 and bids must be submitted by September 6, according to a tender notice published on the company website.
Itapecerica da Serra is located 35km southwest of state capital São Paulo.
