The Bahrain Ministry of Works, Municipalities Affairs and Urban Planning has received bids from nine teams for the development of a waste to energy project.
According to sources, the teams that have submitted bids for the project are, among others:
The new facility will have a total capacity to treat 390,000 tones of waste por year. The project will be developed on a build own transfer (BOT) basis under a 25 year public private partnership (PPP) concession.
Through this latest tender, the Kingdom of Bahrain has taken a proactive step to address the growing waste footprint of the Kingdom in an effective and environmentally responsible manner.
Being an island nation, where land is a scarce resource, the Ministry through this tender, aims to ensure that its current solid waste and future growth is treated in the most environmentally effective and commercially viable manner by diverting waste from Landfills, achieving high recycling targets and recognizing waste as a renewable energy resource.
