Brief Background: In 2010, USTDA provided funding for a Feasibility Study (FS) for the construction of a solid Waste-to-Energy (WTE) plant for the Istanbul Environmental Management Industry and Trading Company A.S. (ISTAC). This WTE plant will help to reduce the volume of municipal solid waste (MSW) at the Odayeri Landfill. Potential U.S. exports for this project could reach $45 million and include deionization and reverse osmosis systems, steam turbines, electric generators, condensers, feed water and condensate pumps, plant control systems, motor control centers, and switchgears. The Istanbul Metropolitan Municipality (IBB) (under which ISTAC is 100% incorporated) will make EPC and consultancy contractor selections through a tender commission. ISTAC will also be involved throughout the tendering process.
A previous tender was issued but later cancelled for financial reasons. The retendering will likely be announced in June or July 2015. After announcement, interested companies will have one month to prepare the necessary documents for prequalification.
Link for more information: Interested companies should monitor www.ibb.gov.tr, the Municipality website for tender selection.
Proposal Deadline: Deadline TBD. Tender will be announced in June or July 2015.
Point of Contact: Contact Information can be found at the IBB website.
