Consultants sought for Med desal projects

The European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD) is seeking consultants to analyse opportunities for desalination projects in the southern and eastern Mediterranean region.

Consultants will support the EBRD in identifying investment opportunities across Egypt, Jordan, Lebanon, Morocco and Tunisia in which the multilateral could provide financing.

The advisory team will conduct a market review and prepare profiles including desalination plants for each country as well as their operating model.

A further assessment will then summarise advances in desalination technology, outlining capital investment and operational costs for plants throughout their lifecycle. 

The EBRD anticipates that the five-month assignment, starting in January, will be financed through its Shareholder Special Fund.

Consultants have until 13 December to submit technical and financial proposals.
