A major contract for a landfill rehabilitation project in Umm Al Qaiwain has been given to ETHPE Contracting.

The deal was awarded on behalf of the Follow-up Committee of the Initiatives of the UAE President, the Ministry of Climate Change and Environment, MoCCAE.

UAE-based ETHPE Contracting provides sustainable public works, hydraulics and environmental solutions for the construction sector.

The company will rehabilitate the landfill serving Umm Al Qaiwain, with the scope of work including site preparation, dredging and filling, as well as building a drying bed for industrial wastewater and a landfill cell for hazardous solid waste.

The project is to be completed in two years with a one-year maintenance warranty.

Dr. Thani bin Ahmed Al Zeyoudi, Minister of Climate Change and Environment, said, “Integrated waste management aligns with the ministry’s mandate to implement sustainable waste management systems across the UAE. To achieve our target of treating 75 per cent of all waste, we are prioritising holistic upgrades that improve the capacity and efficiency of our existing waste management facilities.

“Our landfills are under immense pressure to accommodate the growing amounts of waste generated due to the steady increase in population and industrial activity. Unless we address this issue, the waste management challenge will pose a significant risk to the environment and the community at large,” he added.

Sultan Alwan Al Habsi, Assistant Under-Secretary for the Regions Sector at MOCCAE, and Abdul Baqi Talif, Chairman of ETHPE Contracting, signed the contract in the presence of Dr. Al Zeyoudi.
