The Government of the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan, represented by the Ministry of Water and Irrigation, requests submission of pre-qualification documents from qualified companies and consortia of investors and developers for the development and execution of Aqaba Amman Water Desalination and Conveyance Project (AAWDCP)

On (BOT) Basis

The Ministry of Water and Irrigation(‘MWI’) is seeking submittals of pre-qualification documents from qualified firms or entities (companies and consortia of investors and developers) for the development and execution of The Aqaba Amman Water Desalination and Conveyance Project (AAWDCP), in the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan on a Build, Operate and Transfer (BOT) basis.

The purpose of the pre-qualification process is to pre-qualify companies and consortia with proven records of expertise required for developing and executing the project and, consequently, the criteria for the pre-qualification, as set forth in the call for pre-qualification document, relates mainly to such companies’ and consortia’s capabilities and experience.

General project description

The AAWDCP project will be implemented in two phases. The BOT contractor will be required to provide the GOJ with 130 mcm/year of domestic water in Phase I to meet its future needs for year 2025 onwards. The Phase I water source will be 100 mcm/year from desalinated water and 30 mcm/year from ground water.

Phase II of the project will be implemented in incremental increases to the system capacity up to 220 mcm/year. The schedule for the increment increases in the system capacity will be provided by the MWI during the definitive proposal phase. Accordingly Phase II will be implemented in stages that commensurate with the MWI provided schedule for the increment increases.

AAWDCP is conceived to address domestic water shortage in Amman and its environs and could also supply Aqaba and other major cities along the conveyor corridor as well.

The project vision has been developed with the following objectives:

Deliver at the initial phase 130 mcm per year to Amman. This will be provided from a combination of desalinated water (100 mcm) and ground water utilization (30 mcm).

1. Design, construct and operate a seawater desalination plant for 100 mcm/year capacity with provision for expansion.

2. Design, construct and operate a seawater intake and outfall pipeline system as well as a conveyance pipeline and reservoir system for a 220 mcm/year capacity during the first phase.

3. Design, construct and operate the conveyance system pumping stations for 220 mcm/year for the civil works and 100 mcm/year for the mechanical and electrical system (for the conveyance system pumping stations from the desalination plant to Wellfield) and 130 mcm/year for the mechanical and electrical system (for the conveyance system pumping stations located downstream from the Wellfield).

Role of interested bidders

The project is to be undertaken by a private sector company or consortium which will be granted necessary rights in relation to the project. It is anticipated that the winning bidder will establish a special purpose company under Jordanian law for the implementation of the project (the ‘Project Company’), which shall undertake the implementation of the Aqaba Amman Water Desalination and Conveyance Project (AAWDCP) infrastructure, the management and execution of the infrastructure operations and maintenance and the planning, procurement, receipt, control and repayment of the project financing.

The Project Company will be responsible for arranging and securing all finance required for the project without any recourse to MWI. The MWI will, however, solicit International Financial Institutions (IFIs) to provide grant and concessionary financing to the Project Company.

A candidate shall be either a single company or number of companies cooperating together (Consortium); only those firms or entities that can demonstrate world class experience in construction of water infrastructure and project financing should respond to this announcement.
