Greek construction company Aktor has filed a complaint against the ranking of offers in Bulgaria's 250 million levs ($145.6 million/128 million euro) tender for construction of Zheleznitsa tunnel and adjacent sections of Struma motorway, the Bulgarian competition authority said.
The complaint was filed with the Commission for Protection of Competition on August 16, the anti-trust regulator announced in a notice on Thursday.
Aktor submitted an offer for Lot 2 of the tender envisaging the construction of the tunnel itself, but was disqualified in the pre-selection process.
On August 6, Bulgaria's Road Infrastructure Agency (RIA) said it has ranked first the 185.4 million levs ($109.8 million/94.8 million euro) offer of local consortium AM Struma Tunnel for the construction of the motorway tunnel in southwestern Bulgaria. AM Struma Tunnel tie-up comprises Bulgarian-based companies GP Group, Global Construction and Via-Plan, according to documents published by the government agency
