Global Water Intelligence Magazine is the unchallenged leader in high value business information for the water industry. We track hundreds of Desalination, Reuse, WTP, WWTP and Utility Projects from conceptual stage to contract award.
Project Trackers are updated daily with full progress and status reports including plant capacity, project structure, expected cost, relevant submission dates and full client contact details.
The project tracking service provided by Global Water Intelligence aims to place you ahead of the competition by outlining opportunities from the moment they are conceived right through to financial close. Our core markets are outlined below, together with an explanation of the categories used to define a project’s progress through the market.
Construction projects relating to desalination treatment facilities with planned initial capacities of 10,000m3/d and above, and which use treatment technology equivalent to reverse osmosis or above. We aim to cover these from conceptual phase right through to financial close (where appropriate). This category also includes co-located water and power projects (IWPPs), as well as major rehabilitation projects relating to existing desalination assets.
Construction projects relating to wastewater reuse facilities with planned initial capacities of 10,000m3/d or above, which have a level of treatment equivalent to tertiary or above, and which also have a defined element of beneficial reuse as regards the treated effluent. We aim to cover these from conceptual phase right through to financial close (where appropriate). This category also includes upgrades of existing treatment facilities where the target treatment level of the effluent is to be raised to tertiary or above.
Water and wastewater construction projects involving a treatment element of 10,000m3/d or above, which also incorporate either an operating period for the private sector of five years or more, and/or private finance.
This category does not aim to capture projects with a clearly defined desalination or reuse element (see above). Thus it does not include all projects which may be defined as PPPs, as the project type (i.e. desal or reuse) outranks the status of the project as a PPP in these two specific cases.
This category includes lease/concession-type contracts involving water and/or wastewater treatment assets, as well as pure O&M contracts with a minimum initial operating period of five years, and which relate to water and/or wastewater treatment assets with a minimum capacity of 1MGD (3,785m3/d). The category excludes those projects with a clearly defined desalination or reuse element (see above).
Also included here are pending sales of water and wastewater systems by the public sector to the private sector (i.e. full-scale privatisations).
PPP - Legacy
This captures historical projects which were formerly assigned to GWI’s global PPP tracker, but which were awarded, cancelled, or put on indefinite hold prior to November 2015. All legacy PPP tracker projects which remained live opportunities as of 16 November 2015 were re-assigned to one of the categories outlined above
All categories include municipal, industrial and military contracts (where appropriate).
Conceptual stage – this project is under consideration by the client for implementation at some point in the future, although no advisors have as yet been appointed, and no formal tender process has yet begun.
Planned (pre-RFP) – indicates a project which is in the advanced stages of planning, which may have already undergone a feasibility study, and which is considered likely to move forward to the tender phase at some point in the near future.
Prequalification – denotes a project for which a request for statements of qualification has been released, but which is still in the phase prior to a formal RFP being released. It is similar to “Planned (pre-RFP)”, although the opportunity may be more restricted, since an interested bidder may not be able to play a part in a project once the deadline for the submission of statements of qualifications has passed.
RFP issued– a formal request for proposals has been issued, with the bid submissions deadline set at some point in the future.
Bids submitted – formal technical and/or financial proposals have been submitted by interested parties, but no contract award decision has yet been reached.
Contract awarded – the contract award decision has been taken, even though the final paperwork may not yet have been signed. Note that privately financed projects where the construction contract has been awarded, but where the project has not yet reached financial close, are categorised under “Pre-financial close”.
Pre-financial close – this category is used to denote privately financed projects where the construction contract has been awarded, but where the financing package is not yet in place.
Cancelled – the project will not move forward in its current form.
