Albania’s Gjikuria wins tender for tourism infrastructure works in southern coastal area

TIRANA (Albania), September 27 (SeeNews) – The Albanian Development Fund (ADF) said on Friday it has selected local construction company Gjikuria as the winner in a tender for the construction and upgrade of tourism infrastructure in the southern coastal village of Dhermi.

The assignment is estimated to cost 112.3 million leks ($1 million/914,500 euro) tender, value added tax included, and the construction works must be completed within 10 months, ADF said in a statement.   

Three bids were submitted in the tender announced in June.

The works comprise the construction of an emergency centre, rehabilitation of a water torrent and a new parking area.

The tourist infrastructure works in Dhermi are part of a major project for the development of the Albanian Alps and coastal areas co-financed with a 28.7 million euro loan from the Council of Europe Development Bank (CEB) and a contribution of 6.0 million euro from the Albanian government, ADF said.

The ADF is a public agency whose mission is to encourage a sustainable, balanced and cohesive socio-economic development at local and regional level. The ADF was established at the beginning of 1993, based on an agreement between the Albanian government and the World Bank.
