Development of a solid waste mechanical biological treatment facility.
On 10th May 2018, the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) invited proposals for technical consultancy services for the establishment of a solid waste mechanical biological treatment facility (MBT) in Gaziantep. The project refers to the EU-UNDP Turkey Resilience Project-Component 2: Municipal Service Delivery (Reference Code: UNDP-TUR-IC-MC2-2018-01).
Proposals had to be submitted by email to [email protected] no later than 24th May 2018.
As of November 2017, Turkey hosted over 3.2 million registered Syrians under Temporary Protection, mainly located in the Southeast Anatolia region. Populations have either reached or exceeded 2023 population projections. The situation has resulted in, amongst others, an unprecedented demand for municipal services, including waste management services.
The main objective of this project is to strengthen the resilience of municipalities in those provinces most affected by the influx of the Syrians. The UNDP plans to establish an MBT facility, which aims to reduce the ratio of biodegradables to be landfilled and decrease landfill need by total volume reduction in accordance with relevant legislations.
The UNDP will mobilise an individual contractor to provide consultancy services on the establishment of the MBT facility in terms of technical aspects such as design and construction.
In close collaboration with the project manager and the project’s core team at the UNDP, the individual contractor as “Waste to Energy Technical Consultant” will undertake following major tasks:
Supervision of a feasibility study and elaboration of construction projects of an MBT through best practices of the Government of Turkey;
Supervision on the procurement process for construction of an MBT;
Support the project team at the UNDP for construction supervision of an MBT.
The period of the assignment/services runs from 29th May 2018 to 31st December 2019.
