(Business in Cameroon) - The Cameroonian Ministry of Public Works has just made an international call for tenders, shortlisting 10 companies and corporate groups “to conduct bypass studies on the city of Douala for the construction of a third bridge over the Wouri River.” Among the companies invited to bid, there are two Tunisian groups (Scet-Tunisie-Didon Conseil and Comete-Luxan), the French engineering firm Louis Berger, and Cameroonian engineering firms such as Ecta BTP, Egis Cameroun, Sadeg, Beta Consult and Integc, all partnered with foreign companies.

According to the call for tenders, the project consists of “conducting a technical feasibility study on the bypass project for the city of Douala and the construction of a third bridge over the Wouri River taking into account the socio-economic and environmental aspects of the site; to develop consultation files on the project’s completion and assisting the project leader; and to develop the financial estimate (cost target) for the operation.”

Bidders are required to pay a 35 million FCFA deposit and 500,000 FCFA to purchase a call for tenders application. The successful bidder will have 26 months to complete the project and will receive 1.8 billion FCFA, the provisional amount of the deal, according to the government. Bids are expected at the Ministry of Public Works no later than August 27, 2014.
