France issues port concession notice

Le Havre terminal seeking partner for new development.

The Grand Port Maritime of Le Havre is looking for a service concessionaire to construct and operate the Multivrac Terminal.

The concessionaire will operate, assuming the commercial and operating risk, a terminal including a wharf and a barge station along the Grand Canal du Le Havre.

The estimated value of the concession is positioned at EUR28m. However there is scope for this to climb to EUR47m, should the concessionaire set up on all 14 hectares of the terminal’s entire surface area.

The deadline for submitting bids is March 4, 2020 and the contract will last for a period of 20 years.
