The contract in favor of INTRAKAT in the ongoing tender was finalized by decision of the Ministry of Infrastructure and Transport. Now the large technical company has emerged as a temporary underbidder and as long as there are no pre-trial appeals, we will move into the pre-contract period of the tender. The goal is to have signatures by 2022.
Let’s remember that the company EKTER initially offered a discount, but was excluded. The same happened with the second discount scheme ATESE-ELIKA-PETRIS as it did not renew its financial offer and guarantee of participation. This brought the third consecutive INTRAKAT with a discount rate of 10.54% to be invited by the Ministry of Economy and Finance to undertake the contract.
The auction of the project and the unsealing of the bids took place last summer, on July 5, 2021. The Contracting Authority is the Ministry of Infrastructure and Transport. The projects include, among other things, a new Control Tower.
The tender concerns the project of developing new and improving existing infrastructure of the new Paros airport. The airport of the Cycladic island has presented an impressive course (until the pandemic) and even though an upgrade contract and some building work had been carried out, it was deemed necessary to further upgrade it in order to satisfy its ever-increasing needs.
The cost of the project amounts to an amount including VAT of 46.2 million euros (without VAT 37.26 million euros). The duration of the project was set at 30 months from the day of signing the construction contract. Essentially, if the project starts by the end of the year, then it can be completed in the summer season of 2025.
The project is co-financed after the inclusion of the Action “Development and improvement of infrastructure of the new Paros airport” in the “Y.ME.PER.AA” Operational Program. 2014 – 2020″. The project is also financed by the credits of the P.D.E.
