Montreal Port Authority: Five consortia answer request to build new container terminal
These consortia expressed their intention to be qualified for the next step of the procurement process initiated by the Montreal Port Authority.
Each bid response will be thoroughly evaluated based on technical and financial criteria, and a maximum of three bidders will be selected to participate in the Request for Proposals which, subject to obtaining the required approvals and permits, will begin in 2021.
The Request for Qualification is the first step in a competitive procurement process for this strategic infrastructure project of national interest worth an estimated $750 million to $950 million.
While complying with the environmental assessment process that is currently underway, the Request for Qualification is a crucial step that will soon make it possible to quickly move ahead on the design and construction of a new container terminal that can meet the growing demand for the movement of containerized goods. ■
