Set-up and project management of large, complex feasibility study / transformation plan, turning an existing break-bulk terminal in the Port of Vlissingen into a deep-sea container terminal. The scope and phasing of the project were developed in close co-operation with the existing terminal operator and its partner, an experienced container operator.
Based on a series of studies and financial analyses the optimal terminal infrastructure and lay-out were designed. This included a division of responsibilities and risks between parties involved. For Zeeland Seaports a tender plan was drawn up providing a logical breakdown of the project scope into the number and type of contracts to be tendered. This resulted in a separation of quay wall construction and dredging works in the tender procedure. Finally a long term concession agreement was drafted and negotiated ready for signing.
