ACTV, the ferry company owned by the Municipality of Venice, provider of sea transport services, has just received no offers after a public tender was recently launched to find companies interested at designing and building a bidirectional ferry to be deployed in the lagoon. The contract value was EUR 12 million.

Holland Shipyards submitted its offer but has been excluded from the tender because some  documents were missing.

It’s not clear whether ACTV intends to relaunch a second public tender in the near future, with an increased price.
