Another PPP project with an impressive participation of companies entered its tendering process today. More specifically, 7 companies expressed their interest in the project concerning the creation of student dorms, educational and research facilities of the University of Thessaly, in Volos and Lamia. These are: GEK TERNA, AKTOR CONCESSIONS, AVAX, J/V MYTILINEOS-ATESE, ARCHIRODON, INTRAKAT and THEMELI.

The projects have a double construction scope. The first concerns the integrated intervention for urban regeneration and utilization of the industrial estates of the former cotton industry in Nea Ionia area of Volos, for the creation of student centers, educational and research facilities and social infrastructure of the University of Thessaly.

The second will be constructed in Lamia and concerns the creation of student dormitories and educational and research infrastructure for the University of Thessaly.

It is another collaboration between the General Secretariat for Strategic Investments and PPPs of the Ministry of Growth and Investments. For the last 10 years it has undertaken and is implementing projects whose value exceeds 2bn euros.

The process

The value of the project was estimated at 116.62m euros (incl. VAT, VAT excl.: 94.05m euros). The tender process will take place by invitation, with the minimum number of candidates being three and the maximum six.

As stated in the notice, the objective selection criteria are set out in Article 15 of the call for expressions of interest which constitutes the first phase of the tender.

Invited candidates must submit their interest by June 18, 2020. Those who meet the criteria will then proceed to the second phase, which is divided into two stages. In Stage B1 the dialogue that will complete the technical scope will begin and then if the project is environmentally licensed we will proceed to the final stage, B2 where the bids will be submitted (technical and financial).

It should be noted that PPPs, having now entered the field of strategic investments, are licensed with fast track procedures and valuable time is gained. Licensing must be approved by the Ministry of Environment and Energy.

In total, the contract will last 360 months, 36 of which concern the construction period. The remaining months are the duration of operation and maintenance. Upon the completion of the above period, all buildings must be returned to the University of Thessaly, in the condition in which they were received.

This is the second consecutive project in a Greek university institute. It has been preceded by the University of Crete, where the tender has been underway since the beginning of the year.

The tender for another PPP building project that concerns the University of Thrace will be announced in the near future. In total, these three projects cost more than 500m euros.

Α step forward has been taken in the case of the casino in Elliniko since, as it became known, the technical offer of Mohegan-GEK TERNA consortium was approved by the Gaming Supervision and Control Committee (EEEEP), which is also the finalist for this large-scale project.

What remains now is the award of the tender, a step which is currently unknown when it will take place due to the pending case of Hard Rock International’s appeal to the Council of State. It is reminded that the American company made this move despite the repeated negative decisions for it in this tender, due to the rejection of its offer.

The completion of the tender for the Integrated Resort Casino (IRC), is a basic deferral condition for the initiation of the project in Elliniko, which means that the relevant contract must first be signed in order for the signatures concerning the large investment in the spaces of former international airport to be completed.
