Larnaca port, marina rebuild gets final nod

The long-awaited €1.2 bln redevelopment of Larnaca port and its marina got the final green light Monday after the Transport Ministry sent a ‘Successful Tenderer Letter’ to the chosen consortium after protracted negotiations.

The consortium awarded the project is Kition Ocean Holdings, a Cypriot-Israeli consortium, composing of investors Eldeman Holding BV and Alexandrou Corporate Services Ltd.

Tender negotiations between the two sides have been ongoing since late 2018 when the consortium’s bid was the only one left on the table after a number of bidders pulled out.

Cyprus Transport Ministry said the letter essentially marks the end of the tender process and the whole project can now move on to the next stage with the signing of contracts between the two sides.

Once the agreement is signed, a 12-month transition period will follow during which the investor will take over the project in its entirety.

This involves the restructuring of the marina for at least 650 berths, the port and surrounding land development over an area of 220,000 sqm spanning to a total of 510,000 sqm.

The development, which also involves real estate, is expected to see the consortium invest around €1.2 bln in the project.

Plans include the development of the marina with the latest technological infrastructure, turning Larnaca port it into one capable of serving large vessels with the expansion of piers, docks and the construction of a modern passenger terminal.

As part of the marina development, there will be a yacht club with a retail park, plus hotels, a private island and residential properties.

Port works will also include the expansion and management of the port, improving current infrastructure such as the interior road network, storage space as well as creating a new terminal for cruise ships and utilising the port for cargo management.

The area between the marina and the port will see infrastructure works carried out, including a road network, green areas, parks, open spaces for events, as well as education and medical centre.

The consortium is also planning residential and commercial development with innovative architecture, streets, and parks.

The project is expected to be completed over a period of 10 to 15 years.

According to the Transport Ministry, the project’s added benefits to the economy should surpass €120 mln annually once fully developed.

Under the proposed venture, it is estimated that the state will receive more than €19.6 bln during the lifetime of the project which includes the 125-year lease on the real estate.

The BOT project will see the government receiving a fixed rent and a percentage of the revenue generated through a concession agreement with the port/marina operated on a 40-year lease and the real estate is acquired on a 125-year lease.

After 40 years the port and marina can be handed back to the government who will then decide on their management.

The complete project will span over 10 years as it includes building two hotels (lifestyle/business), nine office buildings (mixed-use) of up to 15 floors each and six luxury apartment blocks up to 13 floors each.

chevron to buy Noble energy

Chevron’s deal to buy Noble Energy may affect “Aphrodite” gas field development

The acquisition of Noble Energy by Chevron is a development that may affect the development of the “Aphrodite” deposit, the Ministry of Energy said in a statement issued here on Monday.

In relation to yesterday`s announcement by Chevron for the acquisition of Noble Energy, a member of the consortium of companies holding an Operating Licence for the Aphrodite deposit in the Exclusive Economic Zone of the Republic of Cyprus, the Ministry of Energy, Commerce and Industry stresses that this, of course, constitutes a development that may affect the development of the deposit.

Therefore, it is noted,  the Minister of Energy Natasa Pilides, will have, in the next few days, teleconferences with the heads of both Chevron and Noble Energy in order to receive full information on the agreement reached between them, in particular those concerning the development of “Aphrodite”, which will be evaluated by the Ministry.

Cyprus gives go-ahead for first LNG terminal

Cyprus’ Natural Gas Infrastructure Company (ETYFA) has issued notice to proceed with the international consortium awarded the contract to build an LNG Import Terminal, the island’s largest energy project.

According to ETYFA’s statement, by accepting the notice, “the parties of the Consortium declare their commitment and their ability to deliver the natural gas infrastructure for electricity purposes within the specified schedule”.

The total project budget is €290 mln. Part of this capital expenditure will be covered by the European Union, in the form of a €101 mln grant through the “Connecting Europe Facility”.

Another €43 mln was provided as equity capital by the Cyprus Electricity Authority, while the remaining amount will be financed by borrowing on favourable terms.

“Co-financing the construction of the project, and creating government-owned facilities, is the optimal choice for the Republic of Cyprus,” said ETYFA.

“It creates fundamental conditions for reducing the price of electricity offering increased benefits to the Cypriot economy and the consumer,” it added.

In December, Cyprus signed a landmark deal with a Chinese-led consortium to build a terminal for the import of LNG for electricity generation.

China-led consortium

ETYFA signed a contract to build its first LNG terminal with the multinational consortium led by China Petroleum Pipeline Engineering.

The consortium also includes METRON (Greece), Hudong-Zhonghua Shipbuilding (China) and Wilhelmsen Ship Management (Norway).

State Natural Gas Public Company DEFA has launched an additional tender for the LNG supply, attracting expression of interest from 25 suppliers.

Cyprus intends to import approximately 0.5 bcm of LNG through Gas Sale Purchase Agreements (GSPAs) with a duration of three to four years, maintaining the option to purchase LNG also from SPOT markets.

Turning to natural gas will help Cyprus safeguard energy supply, diversify the energy mix, and promote competition in the electricity market through the involvement of independent producers.

Cyprus had three unsuccessful attempts to import natural gas in the past due to its small size and energy needs.

The use of natural gas will reduce Cyprus’ carbon footprint by 25% to 30% in replacing oil-burning for electricity generation.

Based on conservative estimates, electricity generation cost savings will range between 15% to 25% from 2022-2025.

Greek oil and gas producer Energean has made a pitch to sell its Israeli natural gas to Cyprus via pipeline at a “competitive price” while Nicosia is opting for LNG.

It has offered to build a $350 mln pipeline to Cyprus — using its own money — to supply gas from its Karish North field to the island.

So far, Cyprus has said it does not need the pipeline as it plans to install a floating LNG import terminal.

It is also set to award a long-term supply contract for LNG — in effect creating a single-supply market.

Norway’s Hoegh LNG has officially applied to Nicosia for a liquefied natural gas infrastructure ownership, operations, and development license in Cyprus.

Hoegh LNG said it was offering Cyprus the stop-gap installation, within the first quarter of 2021, of an FSRU at Vasiliko and a pipeline to transport the gas to the EAC’s power plant and potentially other users.

“This solution can serve as interim until the state-owned LNG infrastructure is in place at Vasiliko.”

The company said its proposal “does not in any way interfere with the government’s plans”.

It said Cyprus, “will be able to save in excess of €100 mln per year from 2021 onwards, by switching power generation to burning natural gas from heavy fuel oil”.

It clarified that the proposal “requires no state aid or investment” and Hoegh LNG is “open to working closely with DEFA, for delivering this important infrastructure project for Cyprus”.

Cyprus is pushing forward to diversify its energy mix to reach new emission targets for the country’s power production.

The country plans to replace the consumption of refined oil products with cleaner solutions such as LNG.

Hoegh says the plan for LNG imports into Cyprus consists of using one of its floating storage and regasification units as a fast track solution for the required fuel switching.

The FSRU can stay on location as a bridging solution or for an extended period serving different customers on Cyprus as well as bulk breaking and delivering LNG to other customers in the Mediterranean.

“The interest in the tender process for the supervision of the construction of infrastructure for introducing LNG to Cyprus, as well as the great interest expressed for this important energy project… highlights both the high standard of the project as well as the participants’ confidence in the procedures,” commented Etyfa head Symeon Kassianides.

The LNG terminal will include a floating storage and regasification unit (Fsru) a jetty for mooring the Fsru, a jetty-borne gas pipeline and related infrastructure.

The project is co-financed by the EU under the Connecting Europe Facility.

In December 2019, Cyprus signed a deal with a Chinese-led consortium to build a terminal for the import of LNG for electricity generation.

Ayia Napa Marina Nearing Completion

The flagship Ayia Napa Marina project is now in the final phase of its construction, gearing up to the start of operations, with the main infrastructure building works nearing completion. This marks a milestone for the iconic project, promoting development and projecting the power of Cypriot entrepreneurship, which will, upon completion, contribute significantly to showcasing Cyprus’ high tourism profile.

Administration offices, buildings housing government services (port, police, customs, medical services, veterinary services), maintenance facilities, as well as boat storage, have already been delivered, having obtained the required certifications from the Cyprus Electricity Authority. At the same time, coastal works have been completed; most importantly, the breakwater, which acts as the main defence mechanism for the marina’s protection, as well as its residential and commercial areas. The floating docks are also ready, with their assembly completed, as well as the bridge leading to the Island Villas, while works relating to the provision of boat services are progressing rapidly.

Roadworks are ongoing on the west and north side of the development, with the vast majority completed, with only the final asphalt pending.

Works on the multilevel parking have reached 95% completion, with lift installation and aluminium constructions underway. In the Marina’s Commercial Village, works are also continuing at a fast pace, including the completion of electromechanical installations, plasterboard work and exterior stone cladding. Works relating to the Marina Event Centre and Yacht Club are also at a similar stage.

In the East Tower, reinforcement works on the ground floor continue, alongside foundation works in the West Tower. Works for the development and landscaping of the surrounding area are also at an advanced stage.

“At the pace with which works are proceeding, the Ayia Napa Marina will soon become a reality for the daily lives of both residents and visitors, promoting an upgraded and modern way of life close to the sea, combined with functionality, comfort and luxury. We are proud to see construction works underway at such a fast pace, as our vision becomes reality, day by day,” declares M.M Makronisos Marina Ltd CEO, Stavros Caramondanis, with great satisfaction, adding that «we are sure that this development will substantially contribute to the revitalization of Ayia Napa, transforming it into a jewel of the Eastern Mediterranean. »

The entrance and berthing of the first boat on Monday, January 27 2020, significantly marked the beginning of the marina’s pilot operations.
