Accepting applications to take part in the concession tender of the “Olvia Stevedoring Company” and of selected assets of the “USPA” SE has started. The corresponding announcement was published in the “Golos Ukrainy” newspaper (the official publication of the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine). The applications will be accepted until December 16, 2019. The processing of the applications to be admitted to take part in the tender will take 14 days.
“The concession of the state stevedoring company in the port of Olvia is a more large-scale project than the one in the port of Kherson, which provides for not only the modernization of the available assets but also the construction of a new grain terminal. The investments to be raised within the framework of the project amount to more than USD 57 million and will support the expansion of the port facilities. This is fully in line with the Government’s agenda for the next five years towards increasing the cargo handling volumes by maritime transport, ” — Mr. Raivis Veckagans, Head of USPA, said.
He noted that the tender conditions envisage consideration of each application by the Tender Board of the Ministry of Infrastructure during 14 days with the decision on whether a bidder has passed the preliminary qualification to follow. After accepting the applications stops, the bidders will have an opportunity to amend their tender bids.
