LetsRecycle is reporting that the number of bidders for the South West Devon Waste Partnership’s £800 million PFI-funded waste contract has been reduced to three: MVV Umwelt, SITA UK and Viridor.

The 25-year, 200,000 tpa deal was awarded £95 million in PFI funding in October 2008. The Waste Partnership includes Plymouth city council, Torbay council and Devon county council.

The announcement means that Shanks Waste Solutions, Urbaser SA and Veolia, who all appeared on the initial shortlist for the contract in May 2009 are no longer in the running.

The next stage is for the bidders to develop their proposals further before being assessed again in summer 2010 and shortlisted to two bidders. Final tenders will be invited in late 2010 and the contract will be awarded the following year.

MVV Umwelt is offering developments based at Ernesettle and the North Yard in the Devonport Naval Base.

SITA is suggesting the South Yard in the Devonport Naval Base.

Viridor is proposing to use its own site at New England Quarry, near Ivybridge.

  1. Urbaser were deselected by the SWDWP, but they have recently published plans to construct a 200,000 tonne incinerator in Kidderminster.
