A consortium including UK-based Biwater, Abu Dhabi-based Al Qudra Holding and Kuwait firm Mohammed Abdulmohsin has been named as the preferred bidder to build two sewage treatment plants in the UAE. The contract, worth an estimated US $544.7 million (AED2 billion), will involve buying a stake in Abu Dhabi's sewage sector.

The consortium will control 40% of a sewage company set up for the projects; the remainder will be owned by Abu Dhabi Water & Electricity Authority. The two plants will be based in Abu Dhabi and Al Ain and have capacities of 30,000m3/day and 65,000m3/day respectively.

The technical, legal and financial details of the deal are expected to be completed by September 2007. Work on the plants is due to begin in October, with commissioning planned for March 2010.

French-based Veolia and Singapore's Keppel Seghers were among the six groups that bid for the contract.
