OPWP plans Oman’s first waste-to-energy project

Muscat - 

Oman Power and Water Procurement Company (OPWP) has issued two tenders for consultancy services for the development of a waste-to-energy independent power project (IPP).

The sultanate’s first waste-to-energy IPP is in line with Oman’s vision to diversify fuel sources for power generation, in addition to supporting the waste sector by reducing waste volume and demand for landfills, OPWP said in a statement on its website.

The company said it is in the process of finalising a study on the technical and economic feasibility of implementing the waste-to-energy IPP with a capacity of around 1.4mn tons per annum.

In a request for proposals (RfP) tender, OPWP has sought proposals from interested bidders to provide financial and commercial consultancy services for the development of the project and to advise on the competitive tendering process.

‘OPWP would now like to proceed with appointing the financial and commercial consultancy services to carry out the procurement of the project once the required approvals are obtained’, it said.

OPWP also issued a separate RfP tender for legal consultancy services for the development of waste-to-energy IPP. ‘OPWP would like to proceed with appointing the legal consultancy services to carry out the procurement of the project once the required approvals are obtained. OPWP seeks proposals from interested bidders to provide legal consultancy services for the development of waste-to-energy project and to advise on the competitive tendering process of the project’, the company said.

Tender documents for both financial and commercial consultancy services and legal consultancy services are available for purchase till October 14 and bids can be submitted by November 14.
