7 candidates applied for Police PPP projects in Kaunas and Panevezys, Lithuania
The Lithuanian Police Department has named the 7 candidates that submitted applications to participate in the tender for Police Infrastructure PPP projects in Kaunas and Panevezys. By mid-September the Police Department is expected to complete evaluation of the qualifications of each respective participants and shortlist up to 5 candidates for each project.
The tender consists of two separate sections and will follow the negotiated procedure. One part will be dedicated to Kaunas Police Infrastructure PPP, and the other to Panevezys Police Infrastructure PPP, meaning that two separate PPP contracts will need to be signed.
Nearly all of the candidates, 6 out of 7 – AB ”Partnerystes projektai”, Pessina Construzioni S.P.A., UAB “Salvinta”, UAB “Inservis”, UAB “Kopaka” and UAB “Merko statyba”, applied for both parts of the tender, whereas AB “Panevezio statybos trestas” expressed interest in the Panevezys project only. Two of the candidates are already implementing pilot PPP projects. The real estate development company “MG Valda” (participating via UAB “Salvinta”), signed the Vilnius Police infrastructure PPP contract in December 2015, and UAB “Merko statyba” delivered Vilnius Balsiai school PPP in 2011.
The New police station in Kaunas will encompass an administrative building of 5 080 sq. m. and additional premises of 1 180 sq. m. The new police station in Panevezys, meanwhile, will encompass an administrative building, together with a police custody building totaling to nearly 8 000 sq. m., 880 sq. m. of garages and secured parking. The expected CAPEX is set at €12.4 million for the Kaunas project and €14.8 million for the Panevezys project.
