GOA: Waste management minister Michael Lobo said that the tender document for construction of the 250 tonne per day (TPD) solid waste treatment plant (SWTP) at Bainguinim has been vetted by an internal auditor, and will be shown to chief minister Pramod Sawant and Panaji MLA Atanasio ‘Babush’ Monserrate this week for their suggestions before it is put up in the public domain to invite bidders.
On August 27, after a review meeting with Lobo, Monserrate, Corporation of the City of Panaji (CCP), mayor, Uday Madkaikar and others, Sawant had said that a tender for the construction of the Bainguinim plant would be floated within 10 days. The project, estimated to cost Rs 200 crore, will be based on a build-own-operate-transfer (BOOT) delivery method.
“The entire amount will have to be spent by the bidder and they will have to treat the wet waste at the plant. The winning bidder will also have to bale the dry waste and send it outside the state for disposal, till Goa sets up its own waste energy plant,” an officer said.
