Gornitzky is representing the company, Zero Waste Ltd., a company whose shareholders are Shikun & Binui and GES, in a petition that was filed against Zero Waste’s winning of the BOT tender. The company has won a NIS 1.25 billion tender to construct the first and the largest in Israel waste recycling facility of its kind, which has an extraordinary technical complexity.
An administrative petition was filed against Zero Waste’s winning of the tender by the company, IRP – Israel Recycling Plants Ltd., the representative of the Veridis concern in Israel, which lost the tender, on the grounds that Zero Waste had been given an illegitimate opportunity to make a material amendment to its proposal and to the specification of the project.
In the judgment given in the Jerusalem District Court (Judge Oded Shaham), IRP’s arguments were dismissed and the Court ruled that even though an amendment had indeed been actually made to the proposal, still, the interpretation that had been given by Zero Waste at the stage of the proposal to the tender was reasonable, and therefore, there had been no bad-faith or crafty conduct at the time that it amended its proposal. The final outcome is that the petition was denied and Zero Waste’s winning of the tender was ratified.
Zero Waste Ltd. was represented by partners Itay Geffen, Noam Ronen and Ronit Rozenstein Barel, together with associates Nimrod Saville and Yaara Suesskind.
