Uruguay eyeing port PPP

6 March 2013 Uruguay’s transport and public works ministry (MTOP) is considering a new port PPP in the city of Rocha.

The MTOP has launched four consultancy tenders for the project, to include the analysis of a possible PPP deal and topographic studies, which will see the creation of a new harbour built in the El Palenque area.

To be developed under a build, operate and transfer framework, total investment in the project has been earmarked at $800m and will finance the deepwater port, which will handle 55.8 metric tonnes annually.

A number of uncertainties still remain regarding the project however, amid fears that the capacity of the proposed port will not justify the investment figure.
