SOLOMON WATER CONTRACTORS BRIEFING FOR UPCOMING MAJOR WORKS

Solomon Water (SW) is a State owned water and wastewater utility that operates in Honiara and several provincial towns in the Solomon Islands.  We have an independent Board of Directors and operate independently of Government.  SW employs various expatriates in key executive and project management roles, is highly professional, good to work with, and pays it’s suppliers on time.

SW has recently had USD 72m of development partner (ADB, World  Bank and EU) funding approved for implementation of its 30 Year Strategic Plan projects under the Solomon Islands Urban Water Supply and Sanitation Sector Programme (UWSSSP). 

The first major project  a USD 2.5 m new reservoir and pump station in the provincial town of Auki is already under construction, and there are more construction projects planned and to be tendered for construction over the next 9 months, including:

·         A new 15 Mld water treatment plant at the Kongulai water source in Honiara

·         11.5 km of new PE trunk water mains in Honiara to allow better transmission of water across the city

·         3 new concrete storage reservoirs in Honiara, total approximately 9 Ml.

·         2 deep sea sewer outfalls and associated pump stations  in Honiara

·         7 sewer pump stations plus 17.5km of associated collector sewers in Honiara

·         Renovation and improvements of water systems in Tulagi and Noro townships

·         Construction of new water supply for Gizo township

·         Construction of new water supply for Munda township

These projects total in excess of USD 55 m and will be tendered in 6 or more packages commencing late 2019 through to mid-2020 as detailed design is completed.

A contractor briefing will be held in Honiara on Wednesday 6 November from 4.00 pm and potential contractors and suppliers who have an interest in providing goods and/or services for these projects are invited. 

The briefing will cover greater detail of the work packages, working in the Solomon Islands, timing of tenders, key information for tendering as well as allow for international contractors and suppliers to meet and hear from local suppliers and potential sub-contractors who could assist with construction and materials supply in the Solomon islands. 

There will also be opportunity either in the briefing or in casual discussion over a drink after the briefing for guests to ask specific questions, provide ideas or concerns in order to allow SW to ensure quality tenders are received.

Appointments for one to one discussion between suppliers and key SW project management staff will also be available on Thursday 7 November.

To register for the briefing please contact Michelle Maelaua on [email protected]
