With Europe’s P3 market at low ebb, German-based Bilfinger Berger Project Investments (BBPI) is now eyeing the U.S., having settled comfortably in Canada. Undeterred by its failure four years ago to win Florida’s I-595, the firm is now shortlisted for the Ohio River Bridges Project’s East End Crossing DBFOM and looking to settle south of the border.
“It may be that PPP will be a very popular way forward for different states to invest in new infrastructure. But we don’t know yet. There is not a critical mass of PPP availability projects,” says Nick Dawson, BBPI’s Wiesbaden-based Managing Director.
