Njeliyanparamba WtE project behind schedule

The WtE project at Njeliyanparamba in Kozhikode, Kerala is behind schedule, mainly due to the lack of personnel and further pandemic-related obstacles. Works can start once biomining is completed, reports The Hindu.

The 6 MW project is said to be worth INR 2.5 billion (EUR 31 million) and capable of treating 450 tonnes per day of waste. It will be constructed by Zontra Infratech on a DBFOT (develop, build, finance, operate and transfer) basis under a PPP model. The plant will be handed over to the city corporation after 25 years. Construction at the plant first started in early 2020.

According to October 2020 information, several years of construction are expected for the plant, whereas the first phase should take one year.
