Brazil’s Sabesp Awards $750 Million in Water Contracts

July 24 (Bloomberg) -- Cia de Saneamento Basico do Estado de Sao Paulo, Brazil’s biggest water provider, has awarded 1.68 billion reais ($750 million) in infrastructure contracts to builders Camargo Correa SA and Andrade Gutierrez SA.

The Sao Lourenco Water Producing System will be developed under a private-public partnership to supply water to municipalities surrounding Sao Paulo, according to an official for Sabesp, as the utility is known, who asked not to be identified by name because of company policy. A contract will be formally signed in September, he said today by phone.

The project will deliver 4,700 liters (1,240 gallons) of water a second to cities when operational by 2017, Sabesp Chief Executive Officer Dilma Pena said last November when announcing the plans. Sabesp said it includes a water-treatment plant in Vargem Grande Paulista and 83 kilometers (52 miles) of pipeline.
