The Humboldt Waste Management Authority (HWMA) in Eureka, California released its request for proposals (RFP) soliciting professional design services for the development, installation, start-up and commissioning of an anaerobic digestion system. All interested parties must register for the mandatory Pre-Proposal Net Meeting by 5:00 pm Pacific Daylight Time on September 26, 2012.
The Authority anticipates the project will need to be designed for source separated organics from commercial and industrial sources with the potential to expand to residential organics, including food scraps and yard trimmings. The project will be owned and operated by the Authority with the vendor providing ongoing technical support as needed. The project site is located within a 6.1-acre parcel owned by the City of Eureka. Heat and power from the digester’s CHP unit will be provided to the adjacent Wastewater Treatment Plant.
The deadline for proposal submissions is January 17, 2013, with vendor selection completed in May 2013. To register for the mandatory Pre-Proposal Net Meeting, email Juliette Bohn, HWMA project manager with the words “Pre-Proposal Conference” in the subject line. Include the name of the firm, main contact and complete contact information in the email. Download RFP
