The city-owned company Bikarac published a tender for the design and construction of the waste-treatment plant and related facilities located near City of Šibenik in Croatia.

The Bikarac Regional Waste Management Center project is worth HRK 130 million (EUR 17.2 million). Money had been secured from European Union’s Cohesion Fund funds and the Croatian Environmental Protection and Energy Efficiency Fund.

“Company Bikarac invites interested companies to submit offers to design and build mechanical-biological treatment (MBT) plant until 16 February next year,” Company said in a statement.

The Bikarac Regional Waste Management Center would solve waste management needs for approximately 110,000 residents of Šibenik-Knin County in the southern Croatia.

Bikarac landfill is located 3.5 km from the outskirts of the Šibenik city and 7km from the city center. Waste is transported to the dumpsite from the City of Šibenik, and 8 municipalities Bilice, Rogoznica, Primošten, Tisno, Murter, Pirovac, Tribunj, Vodice.

More than 10 metric tons of waste is disposed daily with a total waste disposal capacity of 1,800,000 cubic meters.

Croatian member of the European Parliament Davor Škrlec said in October that Croatia should start using the money at its disposal for waste management efforts as soon as possible.

Croatia has EUR 475 million available from the Competitiveness and Cohesion Operational Programme, obtained after the adoption of the Waste Management Plan for the period 2017 to 2022 in January this year.
