Two bid for Argentina drinking water plant expansion

Argentine province Santa Fe received two bids for a contract to expand an ageing potable water plant serving the provincial capital.

Officials want to boost treatment capacity at the plant in Santa Fe city by 75%. The central element of the project is a 6,250m3/hour treatment module. Associated components include a 14,500m3/hour intake, 850m of water transport infrastructure and a new quality control laboratory. 

Consortium Obring-Supercemento-Basaa submitted a bid of 4.31bn pesos (US$43.4mn) and consortium Electroluz-Riva-Bauza one of 4.46bn pesos.  

The project is among the most important in the city’s history in the area of sanitation and drinking water, governor Omar Perotti said. It will allow authorities to provide piped water in all neighborhoods.

The existing plant is over 100 years old and strained, Santa Fe mayor Emilio Jatón said.   

Bids were opened during an event (pictured) at provincial water company ASSA’s offices.
