Ghella-Abergeldie Harker Joint Venture was selected as Watercare’s preferred bidder for the construction of the Central Interceptor project. The other three contractors that tendered for the project are: CPB Contractors; Pacific Networks (comprising McConnell Dowell, Fletcher Construction and Obayashi); and VINCI Joint Venture (comprising VINCI Construction Grands Projets, HEB Construction and Soletanche Bachy).   The Central Interceptor will run for 13-kilometres and with 4.5 metres diameter it will be Auckland’s biggest wastewater tunnel project ever undertaken in New Zealand. It will address wet-weather overflows by collecting the wastewater and storm water.   The contractors submitted their tenders in mid-September and the Central Interceptor team has been reviewing their bids for the last two months.     On 27 November, the Central Interceptor team’s request to move forward with Ghella-Abergeldie Harker Joint Venture was approved by the company’s Board of Directors.   As stated by Raveen Jaduram, Watercare CEO, over the next two months Watercare will continue working with the joint venture on a range of conditions and issues relating to their bid. If these conditions will be successfully worked through, the Central Interceptor team will take a recommendation to the Board of Directors in the first quarter of 2019.    Construction will begin next year and continue until 2025.
