The Hong Kong government has awarded a HK$61.1 billion (£6.2 billion) NEC4 Design Build and Operate Contract (DBOC) for a landfill site extension lasting nearly 60 years. It is the world’s largest and longest single NEC contract to date. The Environmental Protection Department Hong Kong SAR awarded the contract for the West New Territories Landfill Extension (WENTX) to Hong Kong Resources Recovery Park, a joint venture of China State Construction Engineering (Hong Kong) Limited and Veolia Hong Kong in August 2023. After three years of design and initial works phases, the roughly 100 ha site next to the existing West New Territories (WENT) Landfill at Nim Wan, Tuen Mun will be filled with up to 76 million m3 of waste over the following 25 years or so, subject to actual waste intake. The contract includes further 2 years for final restoration works and then another 30 years for aftercare. #HongKong
