Two days ago, the second phase (B.I) of the competitive dialogue for the large PPP project concerning the construction of a  waste-processing unit, in the western part of Central Macedonia, was completed.

The next step is the approval of the protocol for the completion of phase B by the Region of Central Macedonia and the indication of a date (phase B.II) to those interested in submitting binding offers. So far, INTRAKAT, MYTILINEOS S.A. and the consortiums TERNA ENERGY – TITAN, MORE (Motor Oil) – AVAX – THALIS and HELEKTOR S.A.– AKTOR proceed in the tender.

This is one of the largest projects related to waste management. The contract has a budget of 200 million euros. The Contracting Authority is the Regional Association of Solid Waste Management Agencies (FΟDSA) of Central Macedonia.

The dialogue phase includes the process of exchanging views, submitting proposals and comments on the technical, financial and legal aspects of the Partnership

According to the minutes of the committee, the main purpose of the dialogue was fulfilled, such as the investigation of the main aspects of the project (technical, financial and legal) between the Contracting Authority and the Defaulters. In addition, the most complete possible information of the latter on the project data was achieved, in order to identify the best possible solutions and means for the implementation of the project. Finally, participation of the Defaulters in the process is considered active and creative.
