Malaysia-Bahrain MoU posits integrated waste and water project

Malay engineers Serba Dinamik in consortium with EAG Capital are to conduct a feasibility study for an integrated solid waste management and water desalination plant in Bahrain, reports The Edge Markets.

The estimated cost of the project, which will generate electricity for desalination and to provide to the grid, is pegged at BHD 320 million ($849 million).

The duo signed a memorandum of understanding with Malaysia-Bahrain Business Council/Bahrain-Malaysia Business Council (MBBC/BHBC), an organisation incorporated in Malaysia to facilitate trade between Malaysia and Bahrain.

The project is conceived potentially as a PPP contract with Bahrain’s Ministry of Municipalities Affairs and Urban Planning. The MoU provides for “sourcing for and making connections with the respective government departments of the Kingdom of Bahrain”.
