Gov­ern­ment launches tender for waste in­cin­er­at­or in Sofia
Bul­garia launched a tender for ap­prox­im­ately EUR 149.4 mil­lion without VAT for the con­struc­tion of a com­bined heat and power plant (CHP) in Sofia. The dead­line for sub­mit­ting of­fers is 15 April 2021. The waste in­cin­er­at­or pro­ject plans to con­struct a fa­cil­ity for in­cin­er­at­ing an al­tern­at­ive fuel de­rived from pro­cessed waste – RDF (Re­fuse-De­rived Fuel). The RDF will be used by the Sofia Thermal Power Plant (TPP Sofia) as an al­tern­at­ive to nat­ur­al gas. The waste in­cin­er­a­tion plant must be built on the TPP Sofia site and will burn fuel pro­duced from Sofia res­id­ents’ waste.The ca­pa­city of the fu­ture in­stall­a­tion will be 180,000 tons of mod­i­fied waste per year. The fuel will be provided by the Sofia Mu­ni­cip­al­ity free of charge, which in turn should re­duce the costs of Toplofika­cia Sofia (the Sofia dis­trict heat­ing com­pany). The in­cin­er­at­or plant is ex­pec­ted to save around 65 mil­lion cu­bic meters of nat­ur­al gas per year, or EUR 15 to 18 mil­lion.
