A joint venture between Omani contracting firm Hasan Juma Backer (HJB) and India's Tatva Global Environment, was awarded a $20m contract for the design and construction of an integrated waste treatment storage and disposal facility in Duqm special economic zone (SEZ). 

The SEZ is set on Oman's Wusta coast.

The Special Economic Zone Authority of Duqm (SEZAD) awarded the contract on behalf of Oman Environmental Services Holding Co (Be'ah), a wholly government-owned entity tasked with managing the solid waste sector.

The HJB -Tatva joint venture will develop the first phase of an integrated waste treatment scheme, comprising a pair of landfills dedicated to the storage of municipal solid waste (MSW) and industrial waste respectively.

Additional storage capacity, along with support infrastructure, has been planned for subsequent phases of the project's development.

The joint venture's scope of work also includes the design and construction of a landfill cell covering an area of 8ha, which will be dedicated for municipal solid wastes.

The Duqm facility will feature composite lining facilities and a leachate collection and removal system, Oman Daily Observer reported. 

Evaporation ponds of around 5,000 cubic metre capacity have also been planned.
