€54m Waste Transfer Station Contract for SUEZ in Hong Kong

French environmental services firm, SUEZ has had its 10 year, €54 million contract to design, modify and operate the Shatin Transfer Station in Hong Kong renewed.

The company explained that the Shatin Transfer Station currently has a design throughput of 1200 tonnes per day of municipal solid waste collected from urban population centres for onward transportation to North East New Territories Landfill.

Under the new contract, SUEZ said that it is responsible for the design, modifications and operation of the Station. This includes construction and design work to modify existing facilities, maintenance work, and the replacement of machinery as needed to meet the expanded maximum throughput of 50,000 tonnes per month.

The company added that it is responsible for operating the Station to very high environmental standards – ensuring disposal of permitted waste at designated or alternative landfills. Throughout construction works and operations, SUEZ will also perform environmental monitoring and take measures to mitigate the environmental impact of facilities.

SUEZ noted that it has been active in Hong Kong for more than 28 years and currently operates six out of seven transfer stations contracts and two of the biggest and most modern landfills in the world that treat almost 3.8 million tonnes of waste per year.

It also manages the restoration, aftercare and after-use of seven closed landfill sites in Hong Kong. The company added that it is currently responsible for treating 70% of the waste of the city’s 7.3 million residents.
