The Public Works Ministry of Indonesia is in the process of awarding two water supply projects, involving a total investment of $309 million – one in Umbulan (East Java province) and the other in Lampung province. The ministry is currently evaluating bids submitted by domestic and international companies to develop the projects. For the development of the Umbulan project, three consortiums have evinced interest: PT Medco, PT Bangun Cipta Sarana, and Marubeni Corporation; China Harbour Engineering Company Limited and Sun Global; and PT Bakrieland Development and Beijing Enterprises Water Group. For the Lampung project, the ministry is evaluating consortiums that include Abeima and PT Wijaya Karya; Acuatico and the Mitsubishi Corporation; Hyundai Engineering and Construction, Itochu Corporation and PT Potum Mundi Infranusantara; and Manila Water and Great Giant Pineapple Company. The Umbulan and the Lampung projects will provide water at the rate of 4,000 and 500 litres per second, respectively. Water from Umbulan will be distributed to five regencies and cities across East Java, such as Surabaya, Sidoarjo, and Pasuruan. Meanwhile, Lampung project will only cover the capital city of Bandarlampung. The projects are expected to commence operations in 2016.
