The first phase of the tender for the selection of the private partner who will undertake the implementation of the Epirus waste management PPP project concluded.

Seven (7) candidates had submitted expressions of interest and, by decision of the Region of Epirus, six (6) qualify and continue to the competitive dialogue procedure:

  1. AKTOR CONCESSIONS - HELEKTOR 
  2. TERNA ENERGY
  3. ΜΕΤΚΑ - CH. D. KONSTANDINIDIS 
  4. ARCHIRODON GROUP NV - INTRAKAT - ENVITEC 
  5. TOXOTIS 
  6. ΜESOGEIOS - J&P AVAX

The private partner will be selected through an international public tender via a competitive dialogue procedure and will undertake the design, construction, financing, maintenance and operation of the waste management facilities for the Region of Epirus for a period of 27 years. The relevant infrastructure will have the capacity to manage about 150 thousand tons of waste annually, which includes all municipal solid waste generated throughout the area of Epirus.

As in all waste management PPP competitions in Greece, the process allows all available technologies that cover the environmental targets, European and Greek legislation.

The lowest fee to be paid by the users will constitute the main selection criterion, while meeting all environmental goals. The project will be co-financed by the European Union's structural funds.
