- The Nairobi Metropolitan Services (NMS) – responsible for solid waste management in the city county – has partnered with Kenya Electricity Generating Company (KenGen) to establish a waste to energy plant at the Dandora Dumpsite.
- The city of Nairobi generates about 3,000 tonnes of solid waste per day and is transported to the main dumpsite at Dandora within Nairobi, approximately 10km from the Nairobi City centre.
- In this implementation arrangement, NMS will avail the land within or around Dandora Dumpsite and solid waste, while KenGen will finance, develop, and operate the power plant.
KenGen now invites expressions of interest (EoI) from eligible consultancy firms to conduct a feasibility study for development and operation of a waste to energy plant at the Dandora Dumpsite, but in the event that this site is not suitable, the consultant shall recommend an alternative site.
Interested consultants must provide information indicating that they are qualified and experienced to perform the services. For this purpose, documented evidence of recent and similar services must be submitted.
