Oman seeks technical adviser for Barka waste-to-energy project

Oman Power & Water Procurement (OPWP) Company has invited consultancy firms to submit proposals for the technical advisory role on the planned waste-to-energy (WTE) plant in Barka, which will have a power generation capacity of 130-150MW and an estimated capex of $1bn

Oman Power & Water Procurement (OPWP) Company has invited consultancy firms to submit proposals for the technical advisory role on the planned waste-to-energy (WTE) plant in Barka, which will have a power generation capacity of 130-150MW and an estimated capex of $1bn.

Energy & Utilities recently reported that OPWP had signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with Oman Environmental Service Holding Company (be’ah) to resurrect the project, which had put been on hold in 2020 in response to the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic and a downturn in electricity demand.

The WTE plant is planned to have a daily capacity of 4,500 tonnes of municipal waste, with the aim of reducing the carbon footprint of landfills by 50 million tonnes over 35 years, 1.3 million tonnes a year. This is equivalent to 30 per cent of the total carbon dioxide currently emitted by landfill operations in Oman.
