EIB tenders consultancy assignments for Egyptian port

The European Investment Bank (EIB) has launched two tender processes to hire consultants for the Abu Tartour Mining Port (ATP) PPP project in Egypt.

To be more specific, the bank is seeking transaction advisors (TA) for technical support (TS) and legal assistance (LA) for the PPP project. The overall objective of the TA operation is to support, in collaboration with IFC, the Government of Egypt through the PPP Central Unit (PPPCU) of the Ministry of Finance (MOF) and the Ministry of Foreign Trade and Industry (MTI) in attracting private sector participation for the expansion of the Abu Tartour Port and development of industrial facilities via PPP.

  • TS includes, among others: review existing project studies and analysis, develop design specification for the potential commercialization of the port, develop technical design specifications and support consultations with all stakeholders. The maximum budget available is €636,500. The initial period of execution of the contract shall be of 20 months, but this period may be extended.
  • LA includes among others: undertake a legal, regulatory and taxation assessment of the project, review the legal and institutional climate and existing frameworks, design and recommend potential legal structures suitable for private sector participation and prepare the project tender documentation. The maximum budget available is €643,500. The initial period of execution of the contract shall be of 20 months, but this period may be extended.

In August this year we reported that the International Finance Corporation (IFC), a member of the World Bank, selected Maritime & Transport Business Solutions (MTBS) to execute the feasibility study for the project.

Interested parties must submit their applications on or before 8 January 2016.
