A tender has been issued for the complete construction of a new energy-from-waste plant in Ringsheim.
According to a contract notice issued today, local authority-owned waste management business Zweckverband Abfallbehandlung Kahlenberg (ZAK) is behind the project.
The notice explains ZAK wants to build a "thermal recycling plant… for alternative fuels", which are produced by its MBT plant based in Kahlenberg.
The notice does not give any financial aspects for a potential deal and does not appear to specify how much waste the facility would process
According to the notice the deal covers design, delivery, construction and commissioning of the plant, which would include boiler, exhaust air cleaning, turbine and steel construction.
The deal also includes a four-year maintenance period for the plant once it is commissioned.
However, businesses wanting to bid for the project must have at least one reference plant processing substitute fuel, wood or solid municipal waste with a capacity of at least 10MWth that we built between 2012 and 2019.
Potential bidders could also have two plants with capacities of 5MWth, but these must have been built between 2014 and 2019.
