The large building project operates by the method of Public-Private Partnership. The second phase of the competition is the process of promoting the project with the so-called “competitive dialogue”. With it, the technical objective will be determined and approvals will be required for its completion. The most important process of this phase will be the approval of the environmental study.

Then the Auction Documents will be included and will pass to the final phase of the tender (phase BII) where the submission of the technical and financial offer will be required from the participants who continue in the tender.

In the competition we observe strong alliances such as that of Mytilineos with Dimand and INTRAKAT with Redex. At the same time, AKTOR did not enter the competition.
