As Morski writes, a tender has been announced for the construction of the most important individual project of the Dubrovnik Agglomeration, a wastewater treatment plant, ie UPOV Lapad and a sludge drying plant located in nearby Osojnik, in the wider Dubrovnik area. People involved are already referring to the move as the largest Dubrovnik communal infrastructure project to ever be carried out.

The Dubrovnik agglomeration project is worth more than 880 million kuna in total and is being co-financed by European Union (EU) funds. The works should start after this year’s summer tourist season, and since this is a truly huge project, no one involved is mentioning anything about the presumed date for the completion of the works so far.

Vodovod (Waterworks) announced that two more contractors have been selected for the project entitled: “The development of water and communal infrastructure in Dubrovnik”.

These are parts of tender two, which relate to the rehabilitation of five sewage pumping stations and other equipment in the area from Zlatni potok (Sveti Jakov) to Mokosica and the rehabilitation of almost six kilometres of drainage network. There is also the construction of more than 2.5 kilometres of new water supply pipelines in the area of ​​Zaton and Vrbica, which includes the construction of two new pumping stations and one reservoi, as well as the general rehabilitation and reconstruction of almost 2.5 kilometres of the existing network in the city.

For the other two groups within tender two, the review and evaluation of bids is currently underway, as it also is for tenders related to the rehabilitation of the hydraulic tunnel under Srdj and the rehabilitation of the sewerage canal below Stradun and Prijeko (Old Town), for which the contractors should be selected soon.

For the remaining tenders, institutional strengthening, which refers to the development of GIS systems and the procurement of equipment for system maintenance, the preparation of the necessary documentation is now underway, according to the city administration.
