Oman seeks consultants for first waste-to-energy project

MUSCAT, January 18, 2018

Oman Power and Water Procurement Company (OPWP) has floated a tender seeking bids from consultancy firms to provide a techno-economic feasibility study for building the country’s first waste-to-energy (WTE) project, said a report.

The project, which is aimed at boosting the sultanate’s plans to diversify sources of electricity, away from merely gas-fired power plants, is being built in co-ordination with Oman Environmental Services Holding Company (Be’ah).

If the project becomes feasible, the winning consultant will also act as a technical advisor for preparing the tender document for selecting an independent producer through a competitive bidding process, reported the Times of Oman.

Be’ah is likely to provide municipal solid waste from landfills as feedstock for the waste-to-energy scheme.

Renewable energy has also an important place in the strategy of OPWP as the government is moving forward to diversify its energy resources to drive sustainability at the economic and environmental fronts, the report added.
