| The period for allegations to the economic feasibility studies of the regional licenses of both infrastructures is opened | 73 percent of the mooring points in regionally owned ports have administrative validity The Ministry of Development and Infrastructure begins processing the renewals of regional concessions for the exploitation of the Los Alcázares and Águilas marinas with the publication of two economic feasibility studies in the Official Gazette of the Region of Murcia (BORM) and in the Portal of Transparency. After the public exhibition phase that began this week, the tender for the new concessions will be published, which in both cases will have a term of 20 years. The general director of Mobility and Litoral, Marina Munuera, explained that her department is implementing measures to speed up the renewal of the administrative licenses of regionally owned ports, of which 73 percent of their administrative points currently have full administrative validity.
mooring. Thus, for the concessions that do not involve works, it has been chosen to put the ports out to tender through the figure of service concessions, whose processing is faster.
For those that involve the execution of works, regulatory changes have been introduced to streamline the procedure, with all legal guarantees. The new concessions of the ports will take into account all preventive, corrective or compensatory measures for the adequate protection of the environment, especially those related to waste management and air and water quality. In addition, the tenderer will be required to comply with the management of the marina as a sustainable port.
To do this, they must provide the document 'Sustainable Port Management', in which the bidder agrees to meet, throughout the concession period, the following requirements of the distinctive 'Sustainable port concessions of the Region of Murcia': training and information , solid waste management, zero discharge, eco-efficiency and safety. The project presented by the bidder must include an annex that includes a study of effects on the coastal dynamics and, in the event that it concludes that it presents adverse effects, the necessary measures to eliminate or mitigate these must be executed.
The execution must be sufficiently guaranteed in the concession. In the case of Los Alcázares, the open procedure is proposed for its award and the investment to be made for the new concession amounts to 506,613 euros.
For its part, the Águilas marina is considering the open procedure with various award criteria based on the principle of better value for money.
It is a concession for the improvement of services, since it is considered that the port facilities are in adequate condition to provide them, therefore the execution of works is not considered for the award of the concession.
