CHEC chases Bulgarian port projects

Bulgaria’s two largest ports, Varna and Bourgas, are expected to post relatively strong growth in their cargo throughputs this year, as both container and dry bulk volumes increase.

But both ports need to modernise their infrastructure if their mediumterm and long-term goals to compete as gateways to the Balkans and Central Europe are to be realised. Beijingbased China Harbour Engineering Co (CHEC) is keen to make this happen.

In August, Port of Varna EAD, which owns the port, issued a €2.5M tender for the reconstruction of the port’s main infrastructure. According to the country’s Public Procurement Agency, the port company wants to enter into a framework agreement with up to three potential contractors, with the planned work taking place over a three-year period.
