New report on PPPs in Denmark
A new report on public-private partnerships (PPP) in Denmark points to potential public greenfield infrastructure projects and a model for their organisation. Five of Denmark’s leading pension funds have initiated the report and Bech-Bruun has contributed with the legal content.
Five of Denmark’s leading pension funds – ATP, PFA, PensionDanmark, PKA and Sampension – have initiated a report on potential infrastructure projects in Denmark suitable for public-private partnerships (PPP).
Anders Eldrup, Chairman of Copenhagen Cleantech Cluster, and Peter Schütze, Chairman of DSB's Board of Directors, have headed the report. Ernst & Young has acted as secretariat and Bech-Bruun has contributed with legal content and consultancy.
The report points to a number of specific projects that are currently being considered as PPPs. These include the harbour tunnel in Copenhagen, the highway between Næstved and Rønnede as well as new school construction projects. The report also outlines a guideline for good corporate governance of public infrastructure projects, including output-based specification, structure of contract, risk optimisation and life cycle economics.
