A consortium led by Bee’ah and Masdar has completed construction works on a 30MW waste-to-energy (WTE) project in Sharjah, which will have the capacity to treat more than 300,000 tonnes of municipal solid waste a year.

According to a statement issued by Masdar, construction works have been completed and the plant is now entering the testing and commissioning phase.

In October 2019, Abu Dhabi Fund for Development (ADFD), a leading national entity for development aid, approved a $33 million concessionary loan for the waste-to-energy facility.

The facility has been designed as part of Sharjah’s zero-waste-to-landfill target and the UAE’s objective of diverting 75 per cent of its municipal solid waste from the landfill by 2021.

Utilities developers are waiting for the request for proposals (RFP) for Abu Dhabi’s first major WTE project, which is expected to have a processing capacity of between 600,000 and 900,000 tonnes of waste per year.

Energy & Utilities reported in December 2021 that Abu Dhabi-based Emirates Water & Electricity Company (Ewec), in partnership with Abu Dhabi Waste Management Centre (Tadweer), had received prequalification documents from developers for the Al-Dhafra WTE project, which will developed under the independent power producer (IPP) model.

More than 80 firms had submitted EOI in February 2021 for the project, which will be located near the existing Al-Dhafra landfill site in Abu Dhabi. The WTE plant is expected to have a processing capacity of between 600,000 and 900,000 tonnes of waste per year.
