Egypt's Alexandria Port Authority has launched a tender process for an international public auction for the Alexandria's third container terminal.
The project will be developed on a design, build, finance, operate and maintenance (DBFOM) basis. The concession contract is for a period of 30 years. The third container terminal will have a total area of 470,000 sq.m.
The tender process was launched on 29 March 2014 while the pre bid meeting is scheduled on 12 May 2014. Interested parties must submit their proposals on or before 26 June 2014.
The Port of Alexandria is on the West Verge of the Nile Delta between the Mediterranean Sea and Mariut Lake in Alexandria, Egypt. Considered the second most important city and the main port in Egypt, it handles over three quarters of Egypt's foreign trade. Alexandria port consists of two harbours separated by a T shaped peninsula. The East harbour is shallow and is not navigable by large vessels. The West harbour is used for commercial shipping. The harbour is formed by two converging breakwaters.
In April 2014 the Red Sea Ports Authority (RSPA), a subsidiary of Egypt's ministry of transportation, launched two tender processes for PPP projects, the Safaga Port project and the Eltoor Port project.
