Gov’t invites bids for sewage contracts


The government has launched public tenders for two service contracts, which are for the wastewater treatment plant on the Peninsula and for that in the Zhuhai-Macau Cross-Border Industrial Park, the Official Gazette announced yesterday.
According to the dispatch by Environmental Protection Bureau Director Raymond Tam Vai Man, the service contract for the Peninsula sewage project, including the operation and maintenance services for the plant, will be valid for two years starting from October 1 this year.
Meanwhile, the contract for the wastewater treatment plant in the Cross-Border zone would be effective for five years. The future awarded contractor is required to upgrade the sewage facilities within 24 months of the contract starting, in addition to providing operation and maintenance services.
No minimum bidding price is set for either of the tenders. But bidders of the two tenders would need to pay a temporary guarantee deposit of MOP5 million (US$625,000). The two tenders will close 90 days after yesterday’s dispatch.
