Project is part of Kingdom’s Food Sustainability Initiative
Bahrain’s Ministry of Works, Municipality Affairs and Urban Planning has invited expressions of interest (EoIs) from leading construction firms and developers for the establishment of food sustainability facilities in various locations across the kingdom.
The project is being implemented by the Special Projects Office of the ministry as part of the Food Sustainability Initiative, and will see the development of two hydroponic greenhouses, each being developed on an 11,000sqm area.
As per a notification from the ministry, the winning bidder will be developing both the proposed sites for the greenhouse projects, and also setting up the additional necessary facilities in the area.
These food sustainability facilities are being implemented on a build, own, operate and transfer (BOOT) model, the ministry added.
The last date for submitting the EoIs is May 27, 2020, the notification said.
