Some details have been retouched in relation to the provisional approval of the last Council.
- It has been approved that companies or business groups already operating in the port of Valencia may freely submit bids for contracta and that for the termination of mutual agreement of the current terminal if they win the contest should choose to develop a terminal with a higher capacity in 50% to the current one, favouring with it the increase of traffic committed in the port and the efficiency in operations due to economies of scale.
- APV has gone deeper into specifying the calculation of bid evaluation criteria to be as transparent and objective as possible, slightly increasing the valuation of the Business Plan (up to 25 points) compared to the Economic Proposal (reduced to 75 points), In order to give a more adequate consideration to the proposals that better concretize the achievement of the objectives of general interest of the project.

The analysis of the same will begin thereafter, estimating that the selection of the winning proposal can be made according to the criteria of the contest in the Board of Directors for the month of July.
