Merseyside waste contract tender closes

Covanta and SITA have submitted final tenders to build an energy from waste facility in Merseyside.

The contract is to design, build and operate a facility, and provide residual treatment services to deal with an estimated 450,000 tonnes per year of Merseyside’s municipal waste over 25 years.

The Merseyside Recycling and Waste Authority (MRWA) is procuring new waste contracts on behalf of the Merseyside and Halton Waste Partnership.

It has been provisionally allocated £90m in Waste Infrastructure Credits to facilitate the partnership’s Resource and Recovery Waste Contract. The MRWA has now closed dialogue on the tender.

The tenders include plans from Covanta at the Ince Marshes site in Cheshire, and a proposal from SITA for the Wilton International site in Teesside.

Each bidder is proposing an energy from waste facility for the production of energy in the form of electricity, and or heat, from household waste.

The MRWA and specialist advisors will carry out a detailed evaluation of the proposals and a decision on the preferred bidder is planned for the autumn.
