Goa extends time limit for accepting bids for Bainguinim WtE plant

The Goa Waste Management Corporation (GWMC) has extended the time limit for accepting bids for the solid waste management facility at Bainguinim for the second time after three earlier bidders raised a lot of queries.

A senior officer said that the second extension of 45 days is part of the bidding procedure. The last date to submit bids is January 4 and the tenders will be opened on January 5.

On November 9, the corporation had extended the bids accepting process by 15 days, reports The Times of India.

Initially, on September 22, GWMC had invited bids for setting up the solid waste processing facility having a processing capacity of 250 tonnes per day.

Four companies – Organic Recycling System, Hindustan Waste Treatment, 3R Management and Landsky Engineers – participated in the pre-bid meeting for the plant.

Estimated to cost Rs 200 core, the plant is expected to cater to the entire Tiswadi taluka. The corporation had invited a request for qualification (RFQ) for the proposed plant. Bids had to be submitted before November 9.

GWMC has decided to undertake the project through a public private partnership (PPP) on a design-build-finance-operate- transfer (DBFOT) basis, wherein the plant infrastructure will be implemented by the concessionaire along with operations and maintenance for a period of ten years.

The plant will include recycling and sorting lines, segregation, bio-methanation and composting systems.
