Invitation for pre-qualification: Construction of the Palembang City Wastewater Treatment Plant

The Palembang City Sanitation Project (PCSP) is co-financed by the Australian Government and the Government of Indonesia (Central, Provincial and Local Government funds) and will build a Domestic Wastewater Treatment Plant and Pumping Station in Palembang City, South Sumatra Province, Indonesia.

The PCSP has three components:

  2. a pressure main to the treatment plant, and
  3. a gravity fed wastewater sewerage system.

The PCSP will service about 12,000 domestic and commercial properties (comprising about 60,000 beneficiaries) in the central urban districts of Palembang. The design and specifications for the works have been prepared to international best practice.
