Bisnis, Jakarta – The Public Works and Public Housing (PUPR) Ministry will hold a tender for Jakarta Sewerage System in November or December 201. Meanwhile, the Jakarta Provincial Government is ready to offer Zone 8 to potential investors.

Human Settlements Directorate General Secretary of the PUPR Ministry T. Iskandar said that the Jakarta Sewerage System project tender would be held sooner, so that the construction could commence in 2020. Today, the detail engineering design (DED) for zone 1 is finished. The DED will be a guideline for the physical construction tender, which includes wastewater treatment plants (IPAL) and pipe networks.

“Zone 1 includes Central Jakarta, West Jakarta, and part of North Jakarta,” he explained on Tuesday (29/10).

Iskandar explained that the Jakarta Sewerage System project consisted of 15 zones, and planning was only finished for zone 1. Investment for the construction of zone 1 reaches Rp9.87 trillion, for which Rp7.7 trillion comes from the state budget and Rp2.1 trillion comes from the Jakarta regional state budget.

Financing for the state budget comes from a loan from the Japanese Government through Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA).

According to Iskandar, Jakarta currently only possesses one integrated IPAL, which is located at Setiabudi since 1986. Hence, more integrated IPALs are required to lower the pollution rate on surface water and groundwater.

Meanwhile, Jakarta Provincial Government is ready to offer the wastewater processing project to potential investors to expand wastewater service coverage in Jakarta. Jakarta Provincial Government owns 5 zones out of 15 service zones.

“Zones 2 and 5 [are] using the state budget [for operation]. [For] zone 8, we will try to implement the PPP scheme (public-private partnership),” Head of Water Resources Service Office of Jakarta Juaini said.

His agency had held a market sounding last week. More than 100 domestic and international companies participated in the activity.
