Tubig Pilipinas is lone prequalification bidder for P84-M Baggao water project

Tubig Pilipinas Group Inc. was the lone prequalification bidder that submitted documents for the government’s P84-million Baggao Water Supply Project, the Public-Private Partnership (PPP) Center said on Thursday.

The prequalification bidding was done on Tuesday, March 6, at the Baggao Municipal Hall, the PPP Center said in an emailed statement.

According to its corporate profile, Tubig Pilipinas was formed as a result of the partnership among the owners and founders of Princess Urduja Waterworks System Inc., Quadcore Construction and Development Corporation, Repower Energy Development Corporation, and Coal Asia Holdings Inc.

"They have combined their strengths and brought together their vast experience in bulk water supply, water distribution, waste water management, value engineering and construction expertise, steel and PE pipe manufacturing, strategic corporate development, corporate finance, and investment banking,” it said.

Should it bag the project, Tubig Pilipinas proposed to build a whole supply network including bulk water source, storage facilities, and transmission and distribution pipes for Baggao in the province of Cagayan.

The concession period is 25 years, during which the 24 barangays of Baggao should have sufficient water supply.

During the prequalification conference on January 23, two other firms—Eco-System Technologies and Northking Construction—have expressed interest in the project. —Jon Viktor Cabuenas/VDS, GMA News
