Greece Extends Deadline for Receiving Offers for Chios Marina
Greek state privatization fund TAIPED on Thursday extended the deadline for the expression of interest invitation for the marina on the eastern Aegean island of Chios.
The invitation inviting interested parties to submit an expression of interest for the concession of port operation services and of the right to use, operate, manage and exploit the marina of Chios was launched in November 2017.
The new deadline is February 2, 2018, by 5pm Greek time. All other terms and conditions of the invitation remain unchanged.
“Yachting tourism is a priority for Greece… Attracting investments in Greek marinas greatly impacts the overall image of respective areas and supports the tourism industry,” TAIPED Chairman Aris Xenofos had said when the invitation for the expression of interest was first announced.
The marina of Chios is located in the central part of the eastern coast of the island, 2.5 km from the city center of Chios and from the main port and about 6 km from the island’s airport. The sea zone of the marina of Chios, with an area of approximately 80,000 square meters, includes a harbor with a total area of about 28,000sq.m. According to TAIPED, limited-scale interventions will significantly improve the marina’s capacity, serving at least 170 recreational craft of different categories, up to 25 m in length.
