Waste Corp Solicits Further Details From Bainguinim Plant Bidders | Goa News

Panaji: Goa Waste Management Corporation (GWMC) has obtained further details from the companies that have submitted a Qualification Application (RFQ) for the construction of a state-of-the-art 250 TPD (tonnes per day) solid waste disposal facility in Bainguinim.
The Rs 200 crore Public-Private-Partnership (PPP) project will be built on a Design-Build-Finance-Operate-Transfer (DBFOT) basis, with the plant infrastructure being built by the concessionaire along with operation and maintenance for a period of 10 Years.
“We have asked bidders to provide more details as the information they have provided is incomplete,” said GWMC chief executive Levinson Martins.
This is the second time that GWMC has published the tender for the construction of the facility.
The five companies include Bio Wms Pvt Ltd, Indo Enviro Integrated Solutions Ltd, Maaviya Engineering Consultants Pvt Ltd, SFC Environmental Technologies Pvt Ltd and Three R Management Pvt Ltd.
The plant will be based on recycling and sorting lines, separation, biomethanation and composting systems.
A senior official said all the documents have been sent to the technical team for assessment.
The bidding process for the public-private partnership (PPP) project is divided into two phases. In the first phase, the RFQ phase, suitable and potential bidders are shortlisted according to the documents submitted.
In the second and final phase, commonly referred to as a Request for Proposal (RFP), the shortlisted bidder receives the RFP.
In 2008, the Corporation of the City of Panaji (CCP) acquired land in Bainguinim to build the waste treatment plant and in 2017 the land was given to the GWMC.
The GWMC held a public hearing and environmental clearance was also obtained. At the time, the company had also invited bids for the proposed facility.
In August 2021, all three bidders were disqualified as none were found eligible. The bidding process then started again. The tender was later relaunched by relaxing some of the criteria.
