The project which sees BESIX as sponsor is in partnership with Green Energy Solutions & Sustainability LLC (GESS) who will act as technology partner, with CQA International supporting KEO International Consultants as technical consultants.
The project is unique in the UAE and wider GCC region and falls under the renewable energy targets and Carbon Reduction strategy of the Government of Dubai and Dubai Municipality.
The project will involve capture and utilisation of methane generated from waste degradation at Al Qusais landfill site which receives up to 3million tons of waste per year currently. The contract will run for 16.5 years and have a production capacity of over 12 MW from the renewable energy production facilities.
CQA International will support KEO International Consultants in designing and undertaking a gas field pumping trial to allow a detailed GasSim model to be developed and subsequent design of the gas collection network. The role will also see CQA International provide ongoing technical support and financial specifications as the project develops.
Darren Bland, Director: CQA International is honoured to be part of such a prestigious project for Dubai, the UAE and wider GCC region. The project will set Dubai aside in demonstrating what can be achieved and set the standard for waste to energy utilisation moving forward in the region. This project further strengthens CQA International’s leading position in the region as technical experts in solid waste management and renewable energy generation.
