Paraná water utility starts public consultation for US$420mn sewage PPP

The water utility of Brazil’s Paraná state, Sanepar, has opened a public consultation for a concession contract to improve sewage coverage in the metropolitan region of state capital Curitiba and coastal areas. 

The value of the PPP project is 2.2bn reais (US$425mn) with 1.2bn being capex and the remainder opex.

The consultation will run until August 27 and a public hearing to discuss the tender notice will be held on August 8, the firm said in the state’s official gazette.

The auction date for the 24-year contract has not yet been disclosed. 

The project will benefit an estimated 641,000 people in 16 municipalities.

The sanitation sector in Brazil has seen major investments after new rules were approved by congress in mid-2020, which require states and municipalities to provide water and sewage coverage for their entire populations by 2033.

The regulatory change has forced some states to strengthen their sanitation companies, while others have opted to attract investment from the private sector through concession contracts and PPPs.
