The City of Cape Town is set to advertise tenders for the design and construction of aquifer recharge treatment plants in the coming months as part of the City’s drought response plan.
The City says it is looking for mechanical and electrical contracting firms with experience in the design and construction of direct and indirect potable reuse schemes as well as a civil engineering subcontractor to carry out the civil work.
“No design expertise are required for the civil works as this will be designed by the civil engineering consultant and priced in the conventional SANS 1200 format,” the City notes.
The tenders advertised will be for a 36 mega litre per day plant at the Cape Flats Waste Water Treatment Works, a 22 mega litre per day plant at Mitchells Plain and a 16 mega litre per day plant at Borcherd’s Quarry.
According to the municipality the tender for each of the plants will be advertised in the form of one tender document.
The tenders are expected to be advertised in July or August 2018.
