Midlands waste PFI out for tender

Coventry City Council has issued a tender notice for the £1 billion PFI venture Project Transform.

The three-council waste management project, which includes Coventry, Solihull Metropolitan Borough Council and Warwickshire County Council, will treat 305,000 tonnes of municipal waste each year by 2040.

Warwickshire County Council programme manager for waste management Kalen Wood said: We want to have as much competition for the tender as possible. Although the PFI proposal focused an energy from waste facility, the project has gone out to the market as technology neutral.

We did have a couple of delays getting the project out to tender because it took a little while to get the approval of the outline business case but its all systems go now.

Plans in the outline business case proposed the new EfW would replace the existing incinerator in Coventry.

A bidders day will be held on 19 October and they have until 9 November to submit requests to participate in the venture. A maximum of eight operators will be invited to tender.
