Winner for Greek schools PPP bundle

The Government of Greece has chosen a winner for its Macedonia schools PPP bundle.

A consortium of Mytilinaios and Atese has won the contract, beating off competition from four other bidders including Aktor and Avax.

Under the plans, the team will deliver 17 schools in the Central Macedonia region. The DBFOM contract will run for 27 years.

The project is the third housing PPP bundle to be procured in Greece, with the other two, totalling 24 schools in Attica, currently operational.

“Public-private partnerships are an important driver of growth and a strategic pillar of government policy in Greece,” said Nikos Sergis, head of the country's PPP Unit in the Ministry of Development and Investments.

Greece is gathering significant momentum in its push for PPPs, tendering multiple billions of euros-worth of projects and with more on the way. To read more about upcoming projects, click here.
