The Slovenian Government has adopted a decision on establishing a special purpose company for the construction Divača–Koper second railway track.
The new company will act as an internal operator carrying out all activities necessary for the implementation of the Divača–Koper Second Railway Track project, and will later assume the management role in this investment. Immediately after its incorporation, the company will commence all activities required for obtaining the EU funds and for the preparation of legal bases in establishing a public-private partnership. The company will conduct these activities as an agent for the state.
In 2016 and 2017, the company will be recapitalised by the Republic of Slovenia in the maximum amount of €200 million, and also by private investors and other interested inland states, whose total recapitalisation amount will exceed the investment of the Republic of Slovenia. This activity is planned with the establishment of a public-private partnership.
The company’s competences as a concessionaire for the construction of the second railway track will be regulated by a special act, which is being drawn up by the Ministry of Infrastructure and will soon be introduced to the Government.
On the 1st of April, Ministry for Infrastructure issued a building permit for the construction for the entire route of the second track Divača Koper.
