Averda, a leading international environmental services provider, has been awarded a three-year waste management contract to service Qatar’s flagship waterfront development, The Pearl-Qatar. Averda said it will mobilise comprehensive waste and environmental management services immediately, working closely with The Pearl-Qatar’s developer, the United Development Company.
The scope of service consists of general, bulky and recyclable waste collections from all of the commercial and residential towers on the island, which spans almost four square kilometres of beach resorts, restaurants, showrooms, meeting halls and entertainment facilities. The company will also use a tailor- made underground airflow pipe network called Envac System, according to Averda. It consists of multiple inlets located around the island, replacing more conventional waste collection methods. The system allows for a simplified waste collection process that reduces energy use and carbon emissions.
“The technologies used at The Pearl-Qatar will help deliver incredible value both in terms of efficiencies for our customer and cutting-edge collection capabilities that benefit all stakeholders – including communities and the island’s surroundings,” said Niamh Bray, Averda’s Country Manager for Qatar. Working closely with The United Development Company, Averda will also drive forward an exciting programme of community events and awareness initiatives that focus on environmental and human development, said the company.
