The local health unit of Avezzano-Sulmona-L'Aquila, in Italy, has selected the INSO-led consortium as the preferred bidder for the design, construction, operation and maintenance of a new building to use as a healthcare facility as part of the Annunziata di Sulmona hospital under the Public Private Partnership (PPP) model.
The consortium is made up: A.T.I. INSO Sistemi per le Infrastrutture Sociali SpA, Edilfrair Costruzioni Generali SpA., ICCREA Banca Impresa SpA, Sardaleasing SpA, SOF SpA, and G.E.T.E. Srl.
The estimated investment for the project is €19.2 million (US$24.9 million). The tender process had been issued in early September 2013.
Sulmona is a city and comune of the province of L'Aquila in the Abruzzo, Italy, with around 25,000 inhabitants. It is located in the Peligna valley, a plateau once occupied by a lake that disappeared in prehistoric times.
We recently reported other news about PPP projects in the healthcare sector in Italy. In August a Pessina Costruzioni led consortium closed financing for the PPP project to develop ancillary facilities at the new Avellino hospital in the Campania region of southern Italy.
In early January the Regional Administrative Tribunal of Trento declared invalid the award of the €310 million contract to a consortium led by Impregilo for the design, construction and subsequent management of non-health technical services of the new Hospital Pole of Trentino Region.
