Three shortlisted for western Canada residuals project

The groups were chosen from seven submissions to build the facility, which will treat residual solids from a nearby plant in Victoria, British Columbia.

Three consortiums have been shortlisted for a project to construct a wastewater residuals treatment facility in Victoria, Canada.

The three teams submitted bids for the project, which will pipe in and treat residual solids from the planned McLoughlin Point Wastewater Treatment Plant. The facility is funded by PPP Canada, the government of British Columbia and the Capital Regional District, a regional government including southern Vancouver Island and several nearby islands.

The bidders included Harbour Resource Partners (consisting of AECOM, Graham and Suez); Hartland Biosolids Partners (Acciona, Axium and Brookfield); and Hartland Resource Management Group (Bird, Maple Reinders and Synagro Technologies). Proposals to design, build, partially finance, operate and maintain the facility are expected in early autumn, with construction beginning in early 2018 and finishing in late 2020.

Seven bidders originally submitted responses to the government’s request for qualifications, according to the CRD, with the RFQ stage closing in February.
The residuals treatment facility is part of a wastewater treatment project aimed at servicing Victoria and several nearby communities. Other components of the plan include the McLoughlin Point plant and a conveyance system. The project is expected to cost C$765 million ($567 million; €529 million) and finish in 2020.
