Transport and Technical Services are opening the tender process for export, treatment and recovery of incinerator bottom ash (IBA).
There is no capability to do this work on the Island at present and so the contract will not be advertised locally and a contractor outside the Island will be sought. However, there is an opportunity for local companies to tender for the haulage of the IBA.
TTS is looking for contractors able to haul approximately 15,000 tonnes of IBA from La Collette to specified outlets within the European Union.
Those interested in the work should find out more on the Channel Islands Procurement Portal where they can register their interest. Tender documents will be issued in November to those who have registered an interest.
In September TTS started the tender process for the export of air pollution control residue (APCr), this is now well underway. It is expected that by the early part of next year, Jersey will be exporting both IBA and APCr, thereby reducing the harmful elements stored in the ground at La Collette.
The Transport and Technical Services Minister, Deputy Kevin Lewis, said “When I became Minister I said I did not want to leave this material at La Collette as a legacy for future generations. I am really pleased that I have been able to fulfil my promise and that we will soon be exporting this material for recovery or recycling.”
