Private partners sought for Bahamas port

The UK Department for Business and Trade has issued a request for expressions of interest (EoI) seeking private sector partners to deliver and manage a port facility in the Bahamas.

Located in Marsh Harbour on the island of Abaco, the new facility will be managed under a 25-year lease agreement, with the private partners being required to operate, finance and invest in the port throughout the duration of the contract.

The private partners will also need to provide facilities for docking and mooring of domestic and international vessels, as well as providing services for receiving, shipping, assembling, distributing, moving, loading and unloading of break-bulk cargo, among other requirements.

Responses to the EoI are due by July 24, 2023. The tender can be found by clicking here.
