The municipality of Danilovgrad, Montenegro, seeks contractors for the construction of a wastewater collection system and treatment plant. Contractors are also needed for the modernisation of the water supply system.

Tendering for the construction of the wastewater plant and the reconstruction of existing and construction of new sewers is expected to begin in the first quarter of 2017. Interested suppliers, contractors and consultants are encouraged to contact the public enterprise Vodovod i kanalizacija Danilovgrad.

With the municipal infrastructure project implementation, Danilovgrad will finally solve the wastewater treatment problem. At the moment, the total length of the existing sewerage pipelines is 3,171 metres. The existing sewerage is limited to urban areas with approximately 2,000 residents, or 40% of the total population, connected to the network. The collected wastewater flows directly into the river Zeta without being previously treated. Households which are not connected to the sewerage and those in rural settlements rely mainly on individual solutions such as septic tanks. These solutions are potential risk as they can cause soil and groundwater contamination.

The total estimated cost of the investment in the municipal and environmental infrastructure including the rehabilitation and extension of the water supply network is EUR 6 million. In order to provide funds for the project, the Government of Montenegro concluded a financing agreement with the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD) back in 2010.

The infrastructure construction contracts will be financed with the loan proceeds in accordance with the EBRD’s Procurement Policies and Rules and will be open to firms from any country. The contracts for the rehabilitation and extension of water supply network and Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) have been already completed.

In the procurement notice published on the EBRD website, it is stated that the closing date for the proposals is January 16, 2018.
