Solutions for intermodality in Spain supported by the EU via grant

Creation date: February 18, 2013

The European Union will co-finance with over €500,000 from the TEN-T Programme a study to assess the possibilities of using a Public-Private Partnership (PPP) scheme to finance the development of the Vilamalla/El Far d'Emporda intermodal logistics terminal in Spain.


The project, which was selected for funding under the 2011 TEN-T Annual Call, concerns the realisation of a series of studies aimed at evaluating the possibility of using a PPP procedure to continue developing the intermodal logistics platform.


In particular the studies will have to assess which PPP model would be most suited for the project and confirm the viability of realising such a development via a PPP scheme. The studies also explore the use of EU financial instruments in the proposed PPP models and the grant also facilitates the tender preparations.


The project is set to be completed by March 2014.
