The government of Mato Grosso do Sul state in Brazil, through its water utility Sanesul, is planning to launch a tender in the fourth quarter for a sub-concession.

The objective of the 30-year public-private partnership (PPP) is to achieve universal sewage collection and treatment coverage in the 68 cities and towns the utility operates in. Investment from both the public and private sector should total 3.9bn reais over the period.

Currently, technical and economic feasibility studies regarding upcoming concession model options are being reviewed by the state to verify that all prerequisites were met by the two companies which expressed interest in the project. The companies are local engineering firms Aegea Saneamento e Participações and Andrade Gutierrez Concessões.
