Malawi’s Blantyre Water Board has put out tenders for the rehabilitation of the Chileka pumpstation and for the rehabilitation and capacity increase of the Walkers Ferry treatment plant.

The projects, which form part of the second phase of Malawi’s multimillion- dollar National Water Development Pro- gramme, is funded by a pool of financiers led by the World Bank.

The water board explains that the Chileka pumpstation project will include the replacement of eight pumps, pipework and fittings, besides others.

It says the intended implementation period is 18 months. Prospective bidders must have five years’ experience as a contractor, with a proven record of having successfully executed at least three similar contracts in the last five years. They must also have had a minimum average turnover of $10-million in the last three years and must have liquid assets or access to credit of at least $1.5-million.

The Walkers Ferry treatment plant project will include the upgrading of presettling tanks, the installation of new chemical dosing equipment, pipework, the rehabilitation of the dosing and distribution chamber, clarifiers and filters, and the construction of a chlorination building.

To qualify for this assignment, which is expected to last 14 months, bidders must have five years’ experience as a contractor, as well as a proven record of having successfully executed at least two similar contracts in the last five years, a minimum average turnover of $5-million for the last three years and liquid assets or access to lines of credit of at least $5-million.

The bid submission deadline for both assignments is August 29.

Meanwhile, the Blantyre Water Board is also seeking expressions of interest from suitably qualified consulting firms for the construction supervision of the two projects.

The deadline for submission of expressions of interest was July 18.

In a related development, Malawi’s Ministry of Water Development and Irrigation is inviting bids for the supply and installation of water monitoring equipment.

The assignment will be financed by the African Development Bank as part of the National Water Development Programme.
