The Federal Court of Accounts has given some time ago the go-ahead for tenders covering concessions for four terminals under the central government’s Investments Partnerships Programme.
In the Port of Paranaguá, the finished vehicles terminal is to be offered to investors, along with the wood pulp terminals at the Port Itaqui and the Port of Paranaguá. The fourth is the wood chip terminal at the Port de Santana, said Povia, ANTAQ director.
As part of the bidding process for the 25-year concessions, the greatest weight will be given to the financial aspect of the bid.
The government is planning to publish the four tenders in the forthcoming month. Current expectations are that the four concessions will generate investment of around $123m. However, previous new tenders have not generated the levels of interest hoped for, with many investors shy.
