Almería, Spain (PortSEurope) November 25, 2018 – Companies interested in submitting offers for the redevelopment works of the Almeria port of Carboneras have been invited to an informative meeting organized by Agencia Pública de Puertos de Andalucía (APPA – Public Ports Agency of Andalusia) to clarify queries and give the greatest possible information bidders, with offers due on February 20, 2019.
The Ministry of Development and Housing, through APPA, is organising this meeting in order to detail the content of the concession and respond to requests for information and consultations made by interested companies. The tender includes the management and exploitation of recreational, auxiliary and complementary nautical uses on certain areas of the port, as well as the concession for the next 40 years once the works are completed.
The tendered project is specified in a total area of action close to 36,800 m², proposing a new dock for specific use by sports vessels with capacity for 260 berths of lengths between 6 and 15 metres. The bidding process is expected to facilitate an investment exceeding €8 million ($9 million).
It also provides for the development of an area for compatible uses in the contact between the port and the city, with an area of around 5,300 m², which includes the construction of new buildings for tertiary activities, as well as parking. These actions are completed with the extension of the urban road section to the interior of the port area, favoring the integration between the port and the adjacent urban grid through new articulation spaces and accesses.
The construction of two new pontoons for the stay of the fishing fleet is also planned, with a total length of close to 120 metres, and the extension in 30 metres of the dock attached to the exterior dock.
With all the actions envisaged, it is expected to mobilize an investment by the business initiative amounting to €8.5 million ($9.98 million), corresponding €5.1 million ($5.78 million) to the new recreational dock, the transfer of the technical area and improvements in the fishing infrastructure, while the remaining €3.4 million ($3.86 million) correspond to the development of the area of compatible uses, corresponding approximately €2.8 million ($318 million) to new buildings.
