Preliminary Market Consultation for the Creation of a Public-private Partnership ‘Network Restoration Company’
Preliminary market consultation pursuant to art. 66 of D. Lgs. n. 50/2016 for the creation of a public-private partnership in the form of a joint venture between AQP and private companies ‘Network Restoration Company’, below ‘Network Restoration’ for the pursuit of general interest purposes — pursuant to Article 4, paragraph II, letter a) of Legislative Decree No 175 of 19 August 2016.
Territory served by da Acquedotto Pugliese s.p.a.
AQP intends, in the exercise of its mission of general interest, to maintain primacy over the initiative and not to renounce public control of ‘Network Restoration Company’, below ‘Network Restoration’.
For this reason, it identifies as operational tools:
(i) Project finance, to ensure that the investment is fully repaid by its operation; more specifically, the Economic and financial plan (EFP) of the investment — which must be submitted by the participant in the dual-purpose tender for the choice of the ‘Network Restoration’ partner — must provide that AQP remunerates the entire investment through the Integrated Water Service tariff. ‘Network Restoration’ will be remunerated partly by transferring the increase in AQP's tariff, as manager of the Integrated Water Service, and partly by paying the investments made, according to the progress of the works (POW) for the portion of the investment for which AQP invests its own resources or that deriving from public funding that can be allocated to the project, as manager of the Integrated Water Service. The portion of remuneration based on project financing and the portion that will be paid directly by AQP as manager of the Integrated Water Service will be subject to evaluation by AQP during the dual-purpose tender for the choice of the partner of ‘Network Restoration’.
(ii) The creation of a public-private partnership in the form of a joint venture between AQP (so that public control is assured) and private companies for the pursuit of general interest purposes — pursuant to Article 4, paragraph II, letter a) of Legislative Decree No 175 of 19 August 2016.
