Additional information
Additional information: The Government of Uzbekistan received a loan from Agence Française de Développement (AFD) for the implementation of a centralized sanitation systems and developing associated sanitation services in a sustainable way in the three urban centers of Karmana (Navoi province), Kitab,
and Shakhrisabz (both in Kashkadarya province) (hereinafter Project). The implementation period
of the Project is 72 months.

The specific objectives of the Project are: (i) to provide access to a well-managed sanitation service in the selected project area; (ii) to reduce pollution of the environment, (iii) to preserve
the water resource and to reuse wastewater treated for irrigation, and (iv) to strengthen
the Suvtaminotis' skills to operate and maintain the service and to improve the quality of services.
The project encompasses the following components.


Sub-component 1.1 - Reconstruction and extension of a centralized sanitation system in the city of Shakhrisabz (Shakhrisabz sub-project) - AFD financed

Shakhrisabz (135,000 inhabitants) in Kashkadarya province is equipped with a centralized sanitation system in very poor structural condition and with limited coverage. Only 20% of households are connected to the sewer network, whereas the raw effluent is conveyed and discharged directly
in a watercourse, bypassing a non-functional soviet-era wastewater treatment plant.
The project will provide for the reconstruction of the sewer network as well as its extension (indicative total length: 300 km), aiming at approximately 80% coverage of the population. It will include
the connection of 27,850 households to the sanitation system. It will also provide for the dismantling of the old wastewater treatment plant, and the construction under a Design-Build-Operate contract
of a new facility compatible with the reuse of the treated effluent in irrigation. In addition, the project will cover the engineering services conventionally associated (detailed design, tender documentation preparation, support to tendering process, works supervision).

Sub-component 1.2 - Construction of a centralized sanitation system in the city of Kitab
(Kitab sub-project) - AFD financed

Kitab (45.000 inhabitants), in the Kashkadarya province, is not equipped with a centralized sanitation system. The Project will provide for the construction of a sewer network (indicative total length 140 km), aiming at approximately 80% coverage of the population. It will include
the connection of 10,000 households to the sanitation system. It will also provide for the construction under a Design-Build- Operate contract of a modern wastewater treatment plant compatible
with the reuse of the treated effluent in irrigation. In addition, the project will cover the engineering services conventionally associated (detailed design, tender documentation preparation, support
to tendering process, works supervision).

Sub-component 1.3 - Construction of a centralized sanitation system in the city of Karmana (Karmana sub-project) - AFD financed

Karmana (50,000 inhabitants), in the Navoi province, has been recently equipped with a modern water supply system under an Asian Development Bank-financed project which covers most
of the city. But no centralized sanitation system has been implemented in parallel. The Project will complement the ADB-financed intervention in providing for the construction of a sewer network (indicative total length 140 km), aiming at approximately 80% coverage of the population.
It will include the connection of 12,400 households to the sanitation system. The project will also provide for the construction under a Design-Build-Operate contract of a modern wastewater treatment plant compatible with the reuse of the treated effluent in irrigation. In addition, the project will cover the engineering services conventionally associated (detailed design, tender documentation preparation, support to tendering process, works supervision).

Sub-component 1.4 - Participation to the DBO contract - EU financed

To ensure a smooth know-how transfer and a reliable hand-over from each wastewater treatment plant Contractor to the concerned Suvtaminoti, both contracts for the construction
of a wastewater treatment plant will include the full responsibility for the operation during the first year after the commissioning. The related contracts will be based on the Gold F1D1C form of contract (Design Build Operate contract, DBO'), and adapted to meet the requirements of a short operation phase under the contract. This approach is quite new in Uzbekistan, but key to ensure the sustainability of the operation. Indeed, the newly created Suvtaminoti are young entities with weak technical
and financial capacities and require important capacity development to be able to operate this new kind of infrastructure (especially during the first years). It is proposed that part of the EU-grant serve as an incentive for adopting this sustainable approach. After the first year, the operations of the built infrastructure will be handed-over to the two Suvtaminoti.


A dedicated project Implementation Unit (PIU) within the newly created JSC Uzsuvtaminot will be set, with the AFD approval. The PIU will be responsible of the kick off, the monitoring
and supervision of the Project implementation.
International Technical Assistance (TA) will be provided to Uzsuvtaminot JSC - specifically
to its PIU. The hired Technical Assistance will work closely with the PIU. The TA scope of services will include project coordination and planning, project implementation progress, procurement, contract management, budget and financial management, social and environmental compliance, grievance management and reporting.


Sub-component 3.1 - Capacity development of Suvtaminoti Navoi and Suvtaminoti Kashkadarya

The Suvtaminoti LLCs, formerly named "Suvokovas" are taking over all the duties
and responsibilities of the Suvokovas. The capacity development needs of these new entities remain the same in a wide range of areas, such as : (i) investment planning aimed at renewing assets
and increasing coverage and access (regional investment master plans), (ii) customer management including metering, billing and communication, (iii) asset management including gradual implementation of geographical information systems (GIS) and management of non-revenue water (NRW), (iv) financial management including tariffs revisions and accounting, (v) quality control
and standard operating procedures, etc.

An International Technical Assistance will provide capacity development to Suvtaminoti LLC
of Navoi and Suvtaminoti LLC of Kashkadarya in two areas:
- the above-mentioned cross-cutting areas, in close coordination with other IFIs already involved in the Uzbek water sector, with the objective to improve the JSC Uzsuvtaminot
and Suvtaminoti LLCs general operating performances and consolidate their financial sustainability;
- the project-specific area, i.e. the reliable operation of centralized sanitation systems,
and the development of new sanitation services : operation of wastewater treatment plants, management of industrial effluents including possible need for pre-treatment, conduct
of Information Education Communication campaigns to promote hygiene and connection
to the new sanitation systems, management of connection requests from poor households, handling of by-products (solid waste, grease and oil, sludge), valorisation of sludge (biogas, compost, etc.), re-use of treated wastewater in irrigation, laboratory analytical skills, etc.

Sub-component 3.2 - Procurement of equipment to support operation by the two Suvtaminoti

In addition to the above Technical Assistance services, specific equipment will be procured
to support the two Suvtaminoti LLCs in their operational tasks. The envisaged equipment will fall into two categories:
- Equipment related to the operation of the newly built centralized sanitation systems:
high pressure sewer cleaning trucks, automatic wastewater sampler, H2S sensors, etc;
- equipment related to the need for modernizing the Suvtaminoti operation, in line with the sector reforms under implementation: financial management, broader use of IT, etc

In accordance with the Credit Facility Agreement, the responsible entity for the Project implementation is the JSC Uzsuvtaminot. The Project Implementation Unit established under Uzsuvtaminot JSC is responsible for overall Project coordination and supervision. The PIU located in Tashkent will be responsible for the timely and cost-effective implementation and completion of the Project. The PIU will be responsible for provision of assistance to the JSC Uzsuvtaminot and LLC Suvtaminots in implementation of the Project in procurement, financial management, and other aspects to the extent required, in direct communication with the Bank. The JSC Uzsuvtaminot acts as the Client and is responsible for the implementation of the project, including the execution of works, project management, procurement, security, etc., as described in more detail in the Project Administrational Manual.

The PIU Financial Specialist/Accountant will be responsible for the fulfillment of financial management requirements of the AFD and fulfilling other responsibilities as delegated by the Government of Uzbekistan, specifically by the PIU. This includes inter alia, ensuring compliance with relevant AFD policies and procedures for implementation of project activities for the achievement of the project development objectives.
