Bids in for Oman hazardous waste management contract

20 October 2010

Winning bidder to be awarded build-own-operate-transfer contract

Oman Environmental Services Holding Company (OESHC) has received five responses to its request for proposals (RFP) for a hazardous waste management contract.

The following companies submitted bids to provide the services:

  • Suez Environnement (France)
  • Ramky Enviro Engineers (India)
  • National Petroleum Services Company (Kuwait)
  • SMS Infrastructure (India)
  • CMTS Van Sommeren International Group (Malaysia)

The winning bidder will manage the national hazardous waste management project on a build-own-operate-transfer (BOOT) basis.

The tender was launched in January this year. Requests for qualification were submitted by 29 March.

Plans to privatise the handling of hazardous waste follows from Oman’s policy of introducing private companies into the management of its public services.  

The sultanate recently tendered a management contract to cover the country’s water sector. Veolia won the RO 16.8m ($43.6m) contract (MEED 4:10:10).

Plans to do the same with the country’s electricity transmission network were launched in 2008 before it was put on hold. This now looks set to be revived.
