The Port of Ponce Authority (PPA), governing body of the Port of the Americas located in Ponce, Puerto Rico, has issued a Request for Information (RFI) for the partial privatization of the port.
This RFI seeks to solicit industry prospective and feedback regarding a proposed public-private partnership (P3) framework for the port lease.
The Port is located in the Municipality of Ponce, on the south coast of the Island. The project comprises over 300 acres of government controlled land, occupied by the existing Port and future development areas. Through an investment of over $285 Million U.S. Dollars, the Port currently offers a modern Post-Panamax berth with 50 foot depth, two Super Post Panamax ship-to-shore cranes, and a new container yard with a capacity of up to 500,000 Twenty-Foot Equivalent Units (TEUs) per year.
Interested parties must submit their response to this RFI on or before Friday, September 19, 2014. The information contained in the responses to this RFI will help PPA progress planning and development efforts for the private operation of the port.
