EBRD seeks waste consultant for Feasibility studies in Tajikistan The European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD) is seeking consultants for feasibility studies of two PPP waste projects in Tajikistan: the Nurek Solid Waste project and Khorog Solid Waste project.

For the Nurek Solid Waste PPP project EBRD  is considering a transaction consisting of a loan and a capital expenditure grant from an international donor, to finance a priority investment programme in solid waste operations in the Nurek city. The project will:

  • Provide the new equipment (waste collection bins, trucks, etc.) needed to improve the operating efficiency and technical capacity of the landfill as well as the waste collection/transportation services.
  • Fund civil works to rehabilitate the existing dumpsite or develop a new site.
  • Prepare a closure and monitoring plan for the existing dumpsite.
  • Introduce institutional and strategic changes in waste management aimed to boost commercialisation and achieve full cost recovery.
  • Assess the feasibility of a landfill gas recovery system; if proven feasible and economically viable, the landfill renovation will include the necessary infrastructure in preparation for a second investment programme to utilise landfill gas for energy production

The consultant will prepare a comprehensive feasibility study to identify a technically and economically feasible/bankable priority investment programme in solid waste operations in the Nurek city. The maximum budget estimate for the assignment is €280,000. The assignment is expected to start in mid-2014 and last for 4 months.

Interested parties must submit their proposals on or before 15 May 2014.
