1) Mulonga Water and Sewerage Company Ltd (MWSC), through the Government of Zambia, has received financing from the European Investment Bank (EIB), Agence France de Developpement (AFD) and the European Union (EU) and directly from the Government of the Republic of Zambia towards the cost of the Zambia Water and Sanitation Project (ZWSP), and intends to apply part of the proceeds towards payments under the contract for the Rehabilitation and Upgrade of Water and Sewerage Treatment Facilities: Design and Build of Water and Sewage Treatment Facilities in the towns of Mufulira, Chingola and Chililabombwe within the Zambia’s Copperbelt Province;

2) MWSC is wholly and equally owned by the municipalities of Mufulira, Chingola and Chililabombwe and is responsible for providing service to about 500,000 people from about 52,500 water and 51,400 sewer connection customers. MWSC presently operates 8 water treatment plants with design capacities ranging from14MLD to 70MLD and 17 sewage treatment facilities, mainly waste stabilization ponds, along with their associated reticulation systems. Limited major investments in physical infrastructure. This coupled with population growth in the peri-urban areas has constrained MWSC’s ability to provide adequate and reliable potable water supply and sanitation services to its customers.

The overall objective of the ZWSP is to contribute towards improving access of the population in the MWSC service area to reliable, sustainable and affordable potable water and wastewater services;

3) MWSC intends to prequalify contractors for the contract: “ZWS2-C1XD-W-001: Rehabilitation and Upgrade of Water and Sewerage Treatment Facilities in the towns of Chingola, Chililabombwe and Mufulira — Design and Build”. The design and build work needs to factor in the lifecycle cost of the facilities and be synergised with the water and sewerage network;

4) The time for completion of the design and construction activities is up to 36 months from the contract commencement date, including a period of up to 12 months where the contractor will assist and train the employer’s staff in the operation of the treatment facilities. For each facility, the defects liability period will commence immediately after the employer takes over a facility or a section thereof.
