The submission period for the prequalification questionnaire for the Waste-to-Energy plant closed today with 11 economic operators putting forward their respective bids.
WasteServ CEO Richard Bilocca welcomed the strong interest from the sector in this project and explained how the successful implementation of this procurement process will yield to immediate and concrete improvements in Malta’s infrastructural setup and long-term environmental performance. The fact that WasteServ managed to attract numerous world leading names continues to show the solidity of its waste management infrastructural plan.
All the 11 bids will now be analysed and scored according to the pre-established criteria identified within the PQQ document. The top five eligible bidders that score the highest points will be shortlisted for the next stage. The PQQ Stage will be followed by an Invitation to Participate in Dialogue (ITPD). The Waste-to-Energy facility will be treating non-recyclable waste which will be diverted away from landfill and converted into green energy. This will be a game changer in Malta’s waste management potential and will complement the rest of the green waste management plants that will form part of the ECOHIVE complex. This investment will allow the country to reach its full circular economy potential.
