TAIPED starts the year with ma­rina bids

Kathimerini English - - Focus - ILIAS BEL­LOS

For state pri­va­ti­za­tion­fund TAIPED, 2017 gets un­der way with the con­ces­sion of two mari­nas: at Py­los in the Pelo­pon­nese and Alimos in At­tica. By the end of Fe­bru­ary, this should have been fol­lowed by the an­nounce­ment the ten­ders for two more, on Chios and at Aret­sou in Thes­sa­loniki, and, af­ter­ward, an­other of My­conos.

Thurs­day is the dead­line for the sub­mis­sion of bind­ing bids for the 40-year con­ces­sion of Py­los ma­rina, with keen in­ter­est hav­ing been ex­pressed by TEMES, of the Kon­stan­ta­kopou­los Group, and Ak­tor.

On Fe­bru­ary 3, TAIPED will in­vite in­ter­na­tional ex­pres­sions of in­ter­est in the Alimos ma­rina con­ces­sion for a sec­ond time, af­ter a pre­vi­ous, bar­ren call. This is the Balkans’ big­gest ma­rina, with 1,100 berths, and in­ter­est ap­pears to have mounted in the last few months, on the part of the Do­gus-Lamda Devel­op­ment con­sor­tium as well as other Greek con­struc­tion com­pa­nies.

Kathimerini un­der­stands that Alimos Mayor An­dreas Kondylis met with TAIPED of­fi­cial Lila Tsit­si­giannopoulou in late De­cem­ber ask­ing for the swim­ming in­stal­la­tions to re­main at the ma­rina. TAIPED is said to have re­sponded pos­i­tively to this and some other mi­nor re­quests from the lo­cal au­thor­ity.
