The regional authorities of Murcia in southeast Spain have launched a tender to select the operator of La Isleta Marina in Cartagena for a period of 20 years. The concession is valued at some €8m (US$8.1m).
According to local news site Murciaplaza.com, offers are to be submitted by 19 September.
La Isleta Marina is fitted with 200 berths, as indicated by figures from Club Nautico La Isleta. The tender is held by the Ministry of Public Works and Infrastructure of the Region of Murcia.
The latest development represents another effort by Murcia to upgrade its marinas and secure new operators. Last year, the Spanish region launched a tender to award a 20-year marina concession in Los Alcázares and initiated a second tender to select the operator of the Islas Menores marina for the same period.
Cartagena has a population of more than 210,000 inhabitants, according to the state-run National Statistics Institute.
