Representatives of the companies Royal Haskoning and Rebel Group will visit Ukraine next week as part of the work on a preliminary feasibility study for operation of the Kherson commercial seaport as a concession. Members of a consortium made up of these Dutch companies have already met with a Ukrainian delegation that is currently visiting the Netherlands.
Ukraine’s Deputy Minister of Infrastructure Nadia Kaznacheeva announced this, the CFTS reports.
"We had the opportunity to hold the first inaugural meeting with the leading Dutch consulting company Royal Haskoning in consortium with Rebel Group, which are beginning work on a preliminary feasibility study for concession of the Kherson commercial seaport within the framework of cooperation with the World Bank. We expect them to arrive in Kyiv next week for dialogue and further cooperation on preparation of the documents necessary for further advancement of the concession," Kaznacheeva said.
During the visit to the Netherlands, representatives of the Ukrainian Ministry of Infrastructure, the Administration of River Ports, the Kherson commercial seaport, and the Olvia stevedoring company will also visit the port of Rotterdam and familiarize themselves with development of waterways and the operations of locks in the Netherlands.
As the CFTS earlier reported, Royal Haskoning will prepare a preliminary feasibility study for operation of the Kherson commercial seaport as a concession.
According to the Kherson commercial seaport’s acting Director A. Sokolov, Royal Haskoning has long been very familiar with the operations of the seaport because it was the first to show interest in preparing the concession project.
