What's new at DZP?
We have reached a very important milestone in the PPP project entitled "Construction of the Outer Port at the Port of Gdynia". On 5 November 2020, a contract notice was published, formally starting the procedure to select a private partner.
This is currently the largest PPP procedure conducted in Poland (in terms of estimated total project value).
Our law firm together with EY and Databout (in a consortium) have the pleasure of advising on this complex and complicated project for the Port of Gdynia Authority (Contracting Authority) and the Ministry of Development Funds and Regional Policy.
The subject of the contract is the design, build, financing, fit-out and then maintenance and operation during the PPP agreement term of the Outer Port pier where the container terminal will be located with an initial target capacity of 2.5 million TEU per year. The project also includes onshore road and rail access infrastructure.
The PPP agreement will be concluded for a period of approx. 36 years, which includes approx. five years of design and build and approx. 31 years of maintenance and operation of the container terminal (infrastructure operation).
After pre-qualification in accordance with the participation conditions and selection criteria laid down in the contract notice, the Contracting Authority will invite a maximum of five contractors to a competitive dialogue.
The deadline for submitting applications to participate in the procedure is 15 January 2021 at 12.00.
