Cruise ship facilities in Paphos Marina

18.11.2019

The Cabinet of Ministers gave the green light for a study that will focus on the possibility of building facilities for cruise ships as part of the alleged Paphos Marina in Kissonerga Potima Bay north of the city.

After the meeting, Deputy Minister of Tourism Savvas Perdios said that in the next two to three weeks the official start of a tender for the preparation of the study will be announced. The first part of the study will be devoted to the question of whether to combine the development of the marina with cruise ships or whether to build only a pier.

The second part will be devoted to the definition of technical specifications for the construction of the project. For many years, the government invited and rejected tenders for the construction of the project. Since the initial study was conducted over 30 years ago, the Paphos Marina project was stopped by bureaucracy and legal battles.

In 2008, the contract was concluded with the consortium Cybarco Pandora, which included the Leptos Group. Two other members, Poseidon and Pafilia, disputed the award, claiming that the Cybarco Pandora consortium used insider information, which allowed him to bid lower. In the end, in May 2016, after a legal battle, the Poseidon consortium received a contract for Marina. Although the consortium received a letter from the Bank of Cyprus in which the bank guaranteed financing of the entire project, Poseidon was unable to prove that it had 122 million euros or 60% of the total project cost of 215 million euros.

In 2017, Pafilia Developers, which was next in the list of tenders, was invited to participate in a tender for the construction and operation of the marina. Then, in 2018, the Supreme Court upheld the appeal of the Poseidon consortium that the committee responsible for overseeing the tender process in Paphos was illegal.

In July 2018, Marina's “new” steering committee signed a contract with Pafilia for the construction of a marina in Paphos. But in October 2018, Pafilia decided to withdraw its interest.
