The Colombian government, aware of the need to improveinfrastructure in order to reduce logistical costs and thereby promote the country’s growth and development, is currently in the process of selecting contractors for the fourth generation road concessionprogram, which envisages the award of approximately 25 concession contracts, with total investment of close to  €18,300 million.


The selection processes have an initial prequalification stage, which aims to limit the number of potential bidders for each project to a maximum of 10.


The prequalification stage for the first 9 projects was completed between April and August of this year. The main European companies specializing in infrastructure development actively participated in these processes, in the majority of cases through alliances with local companies, with the following results:

The list of prequalified Spanish firms includes Acciona, Cintra, Cointer, Construcciones Rubau, Iridium, OHL, Ortiz Construcciones y Proyectos and Sacyr. Other prequalified European firms are Portuguese firm Mota-Engil, French firm Vinci, Italian firms Impregilo and Salini, Austrian firm Strabag and Swiss firm Shikun & Binui.


The tender processes for seven of these projects are currently in progress and bids are to be submitted in February and March 2014.


Meanwhile, the prequalification processes for a further nine projects are underway. The prequalified candidates for seven of these projects will be announced at the end of the month and the remaining two in January next year.
