Greece to Pick Winner of Wastewater Partnership ContractPaul Tugwell
Greece will choose the winner next month for a 27-year contract to build and operate a wastewater-treatment plant in the northern West Macedonia region, the Development Ministry said.
The ministry said the contract, to be partly financed by the European Investment Bank, will be the first wastewater-management project awarded via the public-private partnership process in Greece, which is undergoing an economic overhaul.
Terna Energy SA, a venture of Aktor Parachorisses SA and Ellaktor SA, and a group comprising Mesogios SA, J&P Avax SA and Polyeco SA submitted binding bids for the project on Dec. 28, the Athens-based ministry said in a website statement.
The sewage treatment plant will have an annual wastewater-processing capacity of 120,000 metric tons.
