The new facility will be located in the Kabd area in a distance of approx. 35 km from Kuwait City with an area of 500,000 m². It will have capacity to treat approximately 3,275 tonnes per day of municipal solid waste using a waste to energy technology to generate electricity. Recovery of remaining slag and flue gas will be disposed into separate sanitary landfills on the site.
The project will be developed on a design, build, finance, operate and transfer (DBFOT) basis. The concession period will be 25 years plus 4 years for construction.
The preferred bidder will be required to ensure the facility is available for use and to accept and treat waste transported to the facility. In return, it will receive an availability payment from the government. In addition, an electricity offtake agreement will be entered into between the preferred bidder and the government.
Interested parties must submit their qualification documents on or before 16 July 2015.
