Fraport Slovenia, the operator of Ljubljana Jože Pučnik Airport, has annulled a tender for the construction of its new multi million euro terminal, despite receiving six bids from contractors and entering talks with three shortlisted finalists. The airport operator will now repeat tender procedures. The decision was made after the National Review Commission for Reviewing Public Procurement Award Procedures introduced new requirements for all capital project tenders. The procedure will now be repeated in line with the new rules outlined by the Commission. The six applicants that took part in the tender included Austria’s Strabag, a joint bid by Croatia’s GP KRK and Slovenia’s CBE, as well as several joint applications by Slovenian companies including Pomgrad, GGD, GIC Gradnja, Elcom, Kolektor Koling, CGP, VG5 and Remont. Ljubljana Airport previously said that construction of its new passenger terminal should commence in late spring, with the new facility to be completed by the end of 2020, in time for Slovenia’s Presidency of the Council of the European Union during the second half of 2021.
