The award is worth €11.10 million ($12 million), and the contract comprises the drafting of the construction project; execution of the installation works for the electrical supply to ships, including connection and disconnection operation and maintenance of the installations.

The entire process is expected to take 57 months.

SAMPOL Ingeniería y Obras S.A. will examine combining the separate components necessary for this sort of installation (transformers, protection cells, disconnectors, frequency converters and so on) with ship power infrastructure.

Thus, on the one hand, a three-month time is set aside for the first phase of drafting the installation’s construction project, followed by another three months for assessment and approval by the PAV, with an award value of €121,000 ($131,384).

The execution of the construction project is subsidised by the European Union’s Next Generation funds and the Spanish government’s Recovery, Transformation and Resilience Plan.

This month, PAV received four proposals for the construction of the container quay in the northern expansion project of the port.
