Chennai: The Chennai Corporation will float fresh tenders for an integrated solid waste processing plant at Kodungaiyur, Mayor M. Subramanian said on Wednesday.

A resolution related to the waste processing plant was tabled before the Corporation Council at a meeting held at Ripon Building.

Ramky Enviro Engineers and Ramky Infrastructure Ltd’s had quoted the lowest pricefor treating waste at Kodungaiyur. The firm quoted Rs.69.30 to process a tonne of waste. About 1,800 tonnes of solid waste is dumped in the Kodungaiyur yard every day.

The Mayor said the council wanted to go in for fresh tenders because the civic body had got a much better deal in the case of the waste processing plant at Perungudi. Hydroair Tectonics (PCD) Private Ltd., offered to pay the Corporation a royalty of Rs.15 per tonne of waste it processes in the Perungudi yard, which receives about 1,400 tonnes of solid waste every day. As the project developer would hold a contract for 20 years, the royalty fee model would earn substantial revenue. The council approved the bid for the Perungudi project.

“The Corporation would get a revenue of Rs.76.65 lakh (1400 x 365 x 15) in the first year in the case of the Perungudi facility, but would have to pay Rs.4.55 crore (1800 x 365 x 69.30) in the first year for the Kodungaiyur facility,” he said.

The project developers would be allowed to recover their cost by selling scrap.
