Shortlisted proponents named for wastewater treatment project
Three qualified teams have been shortlisted to participate in the next stage of the competitive selection process to design, build, partially finance, operate, and maintain the Residuals Treatment Facility over a 20-year term for the Wastewater Treatment Project.
Residual solids from the McLoughlin Point Wastewater Treatment Plant will be piped to the Residuals Treatment Facility at Hartland Landfill, where they will be treated and turned into what are known as “Class A” biosolids. These biosolids are a high quality by-product safe for further use.
Seven submissions were received in response to the Request for Qualifications (RFQ) which closed on February 9, 2017. The following three teams have been selected to move forward to the Request for Proposals stage:
Harbour Resource Partners
Hartland Biosolids Partners
Hartland Resource Management Group
Proponents will submit their technical proposals by early fall and the Wastewater Treatment Project Team expects to execute a contract and begin construction in early 2018. The Residuals Treatment Facility will be complete in late 2020.
The Residuals Treatment Facility is being funded by P3 Canada, the Government of British Columbia, and the CRD.
