The Hellenic Republic Asset Development Fund (HRADF or TAIPED) on Friday announced the launch of three international public tenders for the development of the ports of Alexandroupolis, Igoumenitsa and Kavala.

The tenders were launched within the framework of HRADF’s strategy for the development of the country’s port infrastructure held in its portfolio.

According to HRADF, the port authorities of Alexandroupolis and Igoumenitsa will be developed by a means of a sale of a majority stake of at least 67 percent.

For the port in Alexandroupolis, the tender will grant the right for the investor to exclusively use and operate the buildings, land and facilities of the port land-side zone of the port of Alexandroupolis and the fishing shelter of Makri by virtue of a concession agreement with the Greek government.

The tender processes for both ports will be held in two phases: (a) submission of expressions of interest and prequalification of interested parties and (b) submission of binding offers and selection of the preferred bidder.
