PDO picks Oman's Be'ah for $44m waste management contract
Be’ah will manage non-hazardous waste and waste yards at PDO's concession area under the seven-year agreement
Petroleum Development Oman (PDO) has awarded a $44m (OMR17m) waste management contract to the sultanate’s Oman Environmental Services Holding Company (Be'ah) to manage non-hazardous waste and waste yards within PDO’s concession area, with the contract being signed for a seven-year period.
Managing director of PDO, Raoul Restucci, signed the contract with chief executive officer of Be’ah, Eng Tariq bin Ali Al Amri, at PDO’s Knowledge World Avenue in Muscat.
State-held Oman News Agency (ONA) reported that as part of the operations and maintainance contract, Be’ah will provide service containers of different capacities to separate organic, plastic, paper, and other wastes, which will reduce the amount of waste being dumped at landfill sites for final disposal.
According to ONA, organic waste will be reused by converting it into fertiliser, and construction waste will be utilised to clean and close landfill sites at PDO’s concession areas.
