The soil was geotechnically researched. The current invitation for investment and technical documentation expires on November 13. The bidding process JN 12-15 DOIE for a consultant on a feasibility study and the project’s concept design was cancelled on September 3 after three offers, two deadline extensions and a complaint, as EPS cited conditions for selection haven’t been met.
