France headquartered Veolia, through its subsidiary Veolia Middle East, and its Omani partner Al Ramooz National LLC, has signed a contract for waste management in the Sultanate of Oman with Oman Environmental Services Holding Company, be’ah.

The seven year contract will focus on establishing the required services across the Governorates of Al-Dhahirah and Al Buraimi, restructure the municipal waste collection services and improve public awareness of waste management.

The contract will include collection, transportation, and landfilling for the North West region of Oman for municipal waste and will benefit more than 250,000 inhabitants. Veolia will act as the technical leader of the contract and will operate two landfills, whereas Al Ramooz will be in charge of the waste collection and the development of a Material Recovery Facility (MRF).

This waste management contract in the Sultanate of Oman is a milestone for Veolia, its first ever contract for this activity in Oman. This contract shows how seeking complementary local expertise can be a driver of growth. In line with the development ambition of Veolia in the region, partnership with local players is pivotal for creating value in the territories and for the communities.

“Together with our Omani partner Al Ramooz National, Veolia looks forward to supporting Oman and its people with the best-in-class expertise in waste management. Our key focus for this contract will be to contribute to the implementation of the best standards for the waste management operations in the Sultanate, as well as support the Omani economy through in-country value,” said Xavier Joseph, CEO Veolia Middle East.

Tariq Ali Al-Amri, Chief Executive Officer of be’ah, Oman Environmental Services Holding Company, said that the company was determined to provide high level services in partnership with highly reputable international players.

“At be'ah, our main goals are to structure the waste sector in a sustainable manner as well as to eliminate the environmental damage incurred during traditional waste dumping processes and to support the economy,” said Al Amri

Veolia has been present in Oman since 2006. The Group employs 150 people and is involved in a number of projects in the Sultanate: it recently announced the extension of the Sur desalination plant, located 160 km southwest of Muscat, is now 85% complete. Once finished, the plant will supply drinking water to almost 600,000 residents.
