AAA (Lex Ludens) Advises on EUR 77 Million Public Procurement
On 5 February 2019 Bulgartransgaz (combined operator performing licensed activities of natural gas transmission and storage, owner of national gas transmission network, transmission network for transit transmission and the Chiren UGS) successfully elected the consortium Gas Turbine as winner in a public procurement “Modernization of 3 compressor stations by integrating 4 low-emission gas turbine units” (Ref.No. 180-037). The estimated value of the procurement is over EUR 77 million (VAT excluded) and is one of the largest for the last few years.
The AAA lawyers, being part of a larger team of technical experts and engineers, started work on the project in the beginning of 2018 and covered all legal aspects of the procurement, including legal advice on the type of public procurement to be implemented and the drafting of the public procurement documentation. Evidence for the quality of the works seems to be, amongst others, the fact that no appeal was made from any interested party on any legal document and the overall process.
