The Ministry of Public Works and Services of Mexico has launched a public tender for a thermal plant that will convert solid waste into energy for the subway network.
The project envisages its design, construction, operation, and maintenance.
The contract also involves the management of the processes and products needed to provide 965,000 MWh per year to the subway network, in addition to the design and construction of the Tláhuac park, where the plant will be located.
The 33-year contract will be awarded under the PPP scheme and the plant will pass to the local government once that term has expired.
Proposals must be submitted on February 17, 2017 and the winner will be announced on the 27th of that month.
