 EXPRESSION OF INTEREST FOR

“THE SETTING UP OF A MARINA FACILITY TOGETHER WITH ASSOCIATED INFRASTRUCTURE DEVELOPMENT AT CAUDAN”

 

The Mauritius Ports Authority (MPA) is pleased to invite proposals from local and international firms for the Setting up of a Marina Facility together with Associated Infrastructure Development at Caudan.

 

1. Purpose

To thrive with the transformation of the Port-Louis Harbour into a preferred maritime gateway, the Mauritius Ports Authority (MPA) is investing massively in the infrastructural development of the Harbour.

With the vision of revitalising Port Louis as a port centre and to re-connect the city to the sea, one of the main actions identified by both the Port-Louis City Vision 2030 and the Port Masterplan 2016 study is the setting up of a marina facility together with associated infrastructure development at the Caudan basin.

Indeed, the setting up of the Marina Project at Caudan would facilitate and boost the attraction of the international, regional and local sailing/yachting community to converge towards Port-Louis as a sailing destination. This will generate a bigger traffic of visitors and tourists, thereby increasing the spending per visitor on the different offerings in Port Louis.

Accordingly, the Mauritius Ports Authority (MPA) is hereby soliciting an Expression of Interest from potential parties/promoters interested in setting up the marina facility at the Caudan basin.

 

2. Background Information

As per the recommendations of the Port Louis Masterplan 2016, the water plan in the Caudan Basin has been identified for development of a marina.

The Caudan basin is very shallow with approximately 3 m of water depth. The existing quay walls surrounding the basin are old and are susceptible to collapse if any attempt are made to deepen the sea bed close to the wall.

The basin is identified for the marina project due to its sheltered location and is used by fishing boats and catamarans as a safe haven during the passages of cyclones over Mauritius. During normal conditions, the basin is mostly used by leisure crafts but in an unstructured way.

The perimeter of the Caudan basin is bounded by stakeholders comprising of both MPA lessees and private land owners, as per the annex plan.

Extract from the Port Louis Masterplan 2016 is enclosed with respect to the level of local boating activities for potential users of the marina facility.

 

3. Objective

In line with the recommended development of a Marina at the Caudan basin, the MPA intends to select a promoter who would conceptualise, design, construct and operate the marina together with its associated infrastructures and facilities.

 

4. The proposed project

The project shall comprise the development of a marina facility which should include the following basic facilities but shall not be limited to:

  1. Berthing/docking system for the leisure boats and yachts.
  2. Utilities and facilities like electricity, water supply, toilets, lighting.
  3. Fuelling supply and storage
  4. Land side area access roads
  5. Marina management services

The plate below shows the location plan of the Caudan basin where the Marina facility is earmarked to be developed:

                               

5. Levy Charge Payable

The MPA acknowledges the challenges of operating a marina facility as well as the commercial and financial opportunities for the potential operator.

The aim is to create a "Win-Win" for all the stakeholders. The levy charge payable shall be determined on the exact extent of water plan area which shall be used exclusively by the successful promoter and taking into consideration the promoter's business plan projections and the forecasted investment in the facility and infrastructure development.

 

6. Request for Proposal: Detail List

The response to the Request for Proposal shall include the following information:

  • Description of the concept plan for the marina facility infrastructures, services and operations;
  • Provision for operational Schedule (days and hours the services will be per month);
  • Include a general business plan for the marina operations and describe any plans for expansion of services, advertising, or other factors that will contribute to the long term economic growth of the Port-Louis harbour;
  • Describe the number and type of jobs the business plan envisages creating;
  • Include envisioned partner jobs or services and the local economic multiplier effects;
  • Full contact details including the Name, addresses, telephone number and e-mail of the applicant;
  • Complete resume of the applicant and all principal personnel directly involved with the management and operation of the facility or services;
  • Evidence of experience of the applicant and key personnel in the management and operation of marina facilities and its services;
  • Financial statement of the prospective lessee indicating sufficient resources available for successful promotion, management and operations of the facility.

 

7. Evaluation Criteria

The critical criteria which will be considered for evaluation include inter-alia:

 

  • Proposals will be evaluated on financial resources, general business plan, job creation and contribution to the economic development of the port
  • Experience of team
  • Short and long term financial impact to the Port of Port Louis
  • Services offered and site optimisation
  • Other factors deemed relevant by the Port

 

8. Reservation of rights

The MPA reserves the right to modify the terms of this EOI at any time, waive any irregularities in the submittals. Reject any and or all proposals, negotiate with top-rated Respondent(s) and accept any proposal deemed to be in the best interest of the Port.

In this respect, a written request signed by an authorized representative of the Respondent must be submitted to the MPA.
