Given the importance of the scope of the announced work, we are pleased that the national and international companies from the top ten world’s largest dredgers have submitted applications for the bid. Last year, by improving the procurement procedure, USPA first attracted international companies to take part in the tenders, and today we see increasing interest from foreign contractors. Given the successful practices of holding such tenders in the past year, we expect a transparent and competitive bidding procedure. In turn, I will personally manage that work in the Black Sea was carried out by the company-winner qualitatively and on time”, said Raivis Veckagans, head of USPA.
