France-based Haropa Ports has launched the search for a ground investigation framework partner to support its expansion and upgrade plans.
News of the four year deal to cover the ports of Paris, Le Havre and Rouen was announced in the Official Journal of the European Union.
In July last year, Haropa announced plans to invest €500M (£440M) in its ports over the next five years.
The ground investigation framework will involve the successful bidder undertaking ground charactisation work at all of the company’s port facilities.
The four year framework may be extended twice for up to two years at a time to potentially run for an eight year period.
Bids for the work must be submitted by 4 March.
