Partnership and consortium opportunities in India

Glonet also have three opportunities for businesses, organisations or individuals interested in joining a partnership or consortium to contribute to India creating sustainable water management.

These opportunities include:

Exciting opportunity to join a consortium for sewage treatment tenders in India

Glonet and partners in India are looking to set up a consortium to bid for projects in India. To become a partner you will need to be able to:

  • Design a sewage treatment plant,
  • Provide detailed engineering drawings
  • Produce a Bill of Quantities for contractors, which will also help cost the project.
  • Provide, if required, QA/QC support during construction

An example of a tender bid can be viewed here.

Tertiary Treatment of Sewage

Looking for a partner with technical background with a demonstrable track record in designing undertake tertiary treatment of sewage water to join a consortium for a Design Build Finance project

This opportunity is live in Rajasthan where a municipality wishes to undertake tertiary treatment of sewage water (from their own sewage treatment facility) to recycle to agriculture/industry

BOD is likely to be about 100 mg/l. Desired outlet BOD 20mg/l

Volume: 50,000,000 l/d (50,000 m3)

This project will be awarded on a Swiss Challenge basis. This means that the proposer submits the proposal with a technical scope and a financial bid. The municipality will then invite bids based on the scope provided and if any company offers a better financial bid the original proposer has the option to match the bid to win the project.

Initially we would want our partner to provide us with an estimated BOQ to work out the cost of the project in India.

Our target is to achieve a financial offer of Rupees 14/m3 (£0.14/m3) of treated water to the Municipality. This is why we need an estimated BOQ to see if this figure can be achieved with costs in India.

River Clean Up

This is longer term opportunity to join a consortium into creating an action plan to clean the river flowing through Mumbai call The Mithi River.

There have been various studies and action plans and some clean up attempts, but due to its complex use from having slums located close by to industrial effluent, sewage, waste of various nature, storm-water and probably a lot more nasty material being introduced, this has been a difficult task.

The reality is not just a river clean up. There are social, environmental, healthcare, institutions, policy and many other issues. Furthermore, getting the river clean will most probably require multilateral aid packages from institutions like DFID, ADB or the World Bank. However, to secure such funding will require an action plan.

If a consortium can be established with the necessary skill sets then Glonet colleagues in India can present this to key decision makers with a view to securing a project to define the issues and recommend potential options to address the many issues that will undoubtedly arise.
