NLWA final tender shortlist announced

The North London Waste Authority (NLWA) has announced the shortlist of bidders to submit final tenders for two big projects.

One tender covers waste disposal services including the production of a solid-recovered fuel from waste that cannot be recycled or composted. The other is for the use of that fuel.

FCC/Skanska and Veolia are bidding for waste services while the shortlist for the fuel use scheme comprises E.On/Wheelabrator and Veolia.

NLWA notes that the shortlists reflect an agreement with Covanta that their proposed fuel use solution will be suspended and not progressed to a final tender.

NLWA chair Clyde Loakes, left, said: “Both contract awards are highly competitive with all bidders having a good chance of winning if final commercial details can be agreed and final tenders can be completed with appropriate assurance on price and delivery.

“The procurement and the market’s response has been a great success to date despite the withdrawal of Government PFI funding part way through which has delayed the project by a few months.

“North London needs the new services and the local economy needs the boost that will come from this green investment”.

The authority’s timetable envisages final tenders being submitted in the autumn, the selection of preferred bidders in December ahead of a financial close in June 2013.
