The premier integrated service for the fastest growing alternative asset class
3 March 2009

At this moment in time, market professionals operating in global infrastructure have to concentrate on the implications of the global financial crisis and its economic sequel. But despite the enormity of the current difficulties, the infrastructure universe also remains engulfed in a profound sense of expectation and great optimism for the future.

The positive sentiment is easily explained. The world is suffering from an acute shortage of infrastructure assets. Governments on all continents recognise the problem, but they also recognise that on their own, they will not be able to provide what is needed. Both financially and in terms of execution, the public sector alone cannot take on the myriad of projects that must be delivered if the world economy is to continue to prosper in the long run. For the private sector, therein lies a historic opportunity.

Infrastructure finance and investment has now changed from being the preserve of project financiers to being a complex and diverse asset class with a range of participants.

PEI Media has introduced a new service designed keep informed all those investing in, financing, advising and developing infrastructure assets.
Infrastructure Investor covers the people, the deals, the funds and the banks that are defining the future of infrastructure. Written by an in-house team of experienced, international journalists, Infrastructure Investor takes a global perspective on the themes shaping infrastructure today.

Last A-Modell concessionaire selected
2 March 2009

The German government launched the A-Modell concession pilot project program consisting of four projects in 2005. In February 2009 the last project, a motorway section between Malsch and Offenburg, was awarded to a consortium led by Vinci Concessions. During the construction phase, which will take 5 years, an existing 60-kilometre section is to be refurbished, and a 41.5-kilometre portion of it is to be widened to a dual three-lane motorway.

The 30 year PPP contract has an estimated value of €600 million and covers financing, design and
refurbishment/widening works as well as operation and maintenance. The concessionaire will be remunerated on the basis of heavy goods vehicle (over 12 tonnes) traffic, as measured by the Toll Collect satellite toll system.
