With the ongoing improvements and projects within the ECOHIVE Complex, in line with WasteServ’s mission to lead Malta’s waste management facilities and services towards a circular economy approach, internal waste transportation systems are also being overhauled to ensure that waste is transferred from one facility to the other in the most efficient and environmentally sustainable manner in order to maximise the generation of resources from waste.

The system, which is envisaged to run circa 3km around the ECOHIVE site, is proposed to be designed in an energy efficient manner reducing traffic pollution at the complex and its surroundings. The Preliminary Market Consultation (PMC WSM 161/2020) will assist WasteServ’s project team in gathering the required information on market availability and to finalise the scope of services and requirements which may be used at a future date in the issuance of a call for tenders.

The deadline for submissions is 15 January 2020 and the relevant documents can be found on the website.

WasteServ said it is also happy with the progress made to date on the ECOHIVE project. The results of the shortlisting for the Waste to Energy Plant will be out within days, and tenders for the studies related to the construction of a clinical waste incinerator and the excavation works for the new engineered landfill are currently on the market. Moreover, all the required studies for the Organic Processing Plant and Malta’s new recycling plant are also in full swing.
