The government of La Rioja in Spain has cancelled the tender process for the San Millán Health Complex public private partnership (PPP) project.
The government has plans now to carry out the project through a different model and will present the new proposal in the coming weeks.
This announcement comes after five temas submitted, in May this year, proposals for the project. The five teams that submitted proposals for the project were: Ferrovial, Obrascón Huarte Lain, S.A., QODA Construcciones and Iridium Concesiones de Infraestructuras S.A. (ACS Group), Acciona Concesiones and Sacyr Concesiones and Ismael Andrés.
The Health Complex project would have included several government and public buildings related to the health sector and a 302-space underground parking. It was expected that the new facilities would have capacity to treat about 220,000 people per year.
The total project investment was estimated at €80 million (US$85.8 million). A total of €28 million would be used for construction works, €26.3 million for the operation and maintenance, €11.6 million for taxes and financial costs and €13.8 of value added tax.
