For two of the planned projects, during 2021, calls for tender were made, specifically for PPP concessions’ For the design, construction, operation and maintenance of Saranda Airport ‘and’ For the construction, operation and maintenance of the integrated port of Triport Vlora.

From the data of the Competitive Procedure Document, the PPP concession for the construction and operation of Saranda Airport is a proposal solicited by the Ministry of Infrastructure and Energy and is a contract in the form of Construction, Operation and Transfer (BOT). The source of financing for the construction of this project will be Private Investors and the project has an estimated duration of 35 years.

The PPP Concession for the construction, operation and maintenance of the integrated port Triport Vlora is an unsolicited proposal by the Ministry of Infrastructure and Energy and is a contract in the form of Construction Operation Transfer (BOT), with a duration of 10 years.
