The Cochin Municipal Corporation (CMC) is planning to undertake the Waste Treatment Plant project in Ernakulam district, Kerala, India.
The project involves the construction of a waste treatment plant to process 300 tonnes of waste per day (TPD). It will include the construction of disposal ponds, a pumping station, and other related facilities.
The project will be implemented under a DBFOT (design, build, finance, operate and transfer) pattern in the public-private participatory mode.
In July 2013, the government has finalized its decision to build the plant using waste-to-energy method.
In October 2013, the state government started the process to appoint a transaction adviser, which will prepare tender documents, monitor and complete the project within a stipulated time.
In the fourth quarter of 2013, KITCO Ltd was appointed as the transaction adviser for the project. Biomass Power Ltd has been appointed as the technical consultant for the project.
The project received corporate social responsibility (CSR) fund of US$3.7 million from the undisclosed public sector company to meet the viability gap fund.
During October 2014, KITCO selected Enrich and GJ constructions as the preferred bidders for the project.
Though two firms were qualified for the job, only G.J. Nature Care Consortium submitted the bid for the project. KITCO has suggested that the authorities could negotiate with the firm regarding the power tariff and the establishment cost of the waste treatment plant.
In December 2015, the project was awarded to G.J. Nature Care Consortium on DBFOT basis.
On February 26, 2016, GJ Eco Power Pvt Ltd (GJEPL), a consortium company formed by GJ Nature Care & Energy Pvt Ltd and UK-based technology and financial partners, has officially signed the contract with CMC.
GJEPL is expecting to raise half of its total cost of the project via equity and the remaining through bank loans.
In October 2016, V guard group expressed interest to invest US$1.6 million in the project.
GJEPL has to get 21 approvals in order to start the construction of the plant. However, it could not receive even a single clearance or permit document for commencing work. The delay is due to the problem in acquiring land required for the development of the project. Any clearance or permit documents can be obtained only after the land is earmarked and the site is inspected.
Other major clearances and permits have to be obtained from the state pollution control board (PCB), Ministry of Environment and Forest and the district administration.
The design and detailed project report (DPR) of the plant have already been formulated and submitted to authorities. Subject to all approvals, GJEPL is expected to start the work and complete the project within a period of two years.
The project involves the construction of waste-to-energy plant to process around 300 TPD at Brahmapuram in Ernakulam district, Kerala.
