Lithua­nia’s na­tional Sta­dium con­ces­sion ten­der to be ex­tended

The Baltic Times - - BALTICS -

Three con­sor­tia of com­pa­nies have ap­plied for con­struc­tion and man­age­ment con­ces­sion of the nearly 90 mil­lion euro Na­tional Sta­dium in Vil­nius, with a de­ci­sion on the fourth one yet to be made, Remigi­jus Ši­mašius, Mayor of the Lithua­nian cap­i­tal, said. Lithua­nia’s chief pub­lic pro­cure­ment watch­dog says that the ser­vice had given a green light to the dead­line ex­ten­sion for the fourth par­tic­i­pant to be able to ap­ply. Two of the con­sor­tia, the KDS group, with Poland’s Budimex and Icor con­cern, have of­fi­cially con­firmed hav­ing ap­plied for the ten­der. The ten­der also in­cludes a Turk­ish com­pany, as well as an Ital­ian par­tic­i­pant that has failed to sub­mit its ap­pli­ca­tion yet. The con­ces­sion con­tract with the in­vestor will be signed for 25 years. The con­struc­tion of the sta­dium is es­ti­mated at 88.5 mil­lion eu­ros (in­clud­ing VAT), in­clud­ing 33.6 mil­lion eu­ros in EU money. The com­plex should fea­ture at least three foot­ball fields, an ath­let­ics sta­dium, sports fa­cil­i­ties, a cul­tural ed­u­ca­tion cen­tre and a kinder­garten.
