The Municipal Corporation of Gurugram has asked its waste concessionaire, Ecogreen, to present a status report on its progress on the proposed waste-to-energy (WTE) plant at the Bandhwari landfill site. The local body has requested information on the progress of finalising the plant’s engineering, procurement, and construction (EPC) contract, as well as drawings, structural design progress, and the start date for construction.

Haryana Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar had laid the foundation stone for the WTE plant on December 10, 2021.

“The commissioner then directed Ecogreen to submit a status report as well as a timeframe for the next steps,” an MCG official said.

Ecogreen was given instructions to produce a fortnightly progress report on the WTE plant’s activities, according to the official, but it has yet to do so to the MCG.

According to Ecogreen, work on the plant’s border wall has begun. “In April, the EPC contract will be mobilised. The biggest problem we have is a lack of space at the landfill. Pre-construction activities will begin in March or April, according to a report in The Times of India. The WTE plant is expected to be operational by December 2023, with a 15MW capacity that will generate six lakh units of energy.
