The Municipality of Corfu has published the Invitation for Expression of Interest for the construction of the waste management facilities in Corfu through a PPP.
The project will be developed on a design, financing, construction, maintenance and operation basis. The concession is for a period of 27 years. The projects will utilize funds provided by the European Union's structural funds for the co-financing of the construction costs by 40-60%.
The deadline for the submission of expressions of interest is May 6th, 2014. The lowest fee to be paid by the users will constitute the main selection criterion, while meeting all environmental goals.
The facility in Corfu will manage about 87 thousand tons of waste annually, covering the total of solid municipal waste produced in the administrative area of Corfu and providing a permanent solution to the problem of waste management on the island.
As in all waste management PPP tender competitions in Greece, the process allows all available technologies that cover the environmental targets, European and Greek legislation, fostering healthy competition among the bidders and facilitating the selection of the optimal solution.
