VINCI signs first industrial public-private partnership in the French overseas departments and territories (DOM-TOM)

 

OCIDIM, a wholly-owned subsidiary of VINCI Construction, has signed the first industrial public-private partnership in the French overseas departments and territories (DOM-TOM) with the Reunion Island’s Chamber of Commerce and Industry (CCIR) to build a cereal terminal at Port Réunion, located in the northwest of the island.

The project encompasses the construction of a cereal terminal with a storage capacity of 85,000 m3 distributed among 16 vertical concrete silos and a flat storage building. This new infrastructure complex will be capable of unloading a 40,000-ton ship in five days and will have an annual throughput of 300,000 metric tons of cereals.

The “SAS Terminal Céréalier” consortium consisting of OCIDIM, the Caisse des Dépôts & Consignations and OCEOR (Caisse d’épargne), has contracted to finance, build and maintain for thirty years this facility which will be rented and operated by the Reunion Island’s Chamber of Commerce and Industry after its delivery in 2011.

Work totalling €38 million will take 27 months and be handled by SBTPC and SOGEA Réunion, both Reunion Island subsidiaries of VINCI Construction. Design, engineering and execution of electrical works and automated systems will be carried out by SETB and ACTEMIUM Nutrition, while multi-facilities maintenance will be performed by Optéor, all subsidiaries of VINCI Energies.

This new success is rooted in the synergies existing among the Group’s competencies as well as from VINCI’s powerful position on Reunion Island.
