Slovenian Railways are about to sign a contract for the Ljubljana passenger centre with a new potential investor, a Romanian-South African fund Prime Kapital.

This autumn, ten years will have passed since Slovenian Railways signed a deal for the construction of the Ljubljana passenger centre with Hungarian-Canadian company TriGranit, which later withdrew from the venture. Today, negotiations with a new potential investor, the Romanian-South African fund Prime Kapital, are nearing completion and the contract for the construction of Emonika is supposedly about to be signed. There are only a few legal details to be settled.

According to Dušan Mes, general director of Slovenian Railways, there is scant legal precedent in the area of settlement, as far as contracts made within the framework of public tenders are concerned. "It is very demanding, but do-able," said Mes.

Our sources say that the contract for the construction of the passenger centre will be signed within a month and its construction will start at the beginning of next year. Regarding the investor’s power, we can assume that it will use this project to open doors to other projects in Ljubljana’s increasingly heated real estate sector.
