  • P3s – Developments in an emerging market

    The past year has been a period of unprecedented activity in the US P3 sector. A number of significant transactions have reached financial close, including Texas’s North Tarrant Expressway in September 2013 and the New York/New Jersey Goethals Bridge project in November 2013. Currently, there are more P3 transactions in active procurement than ever before. By Roderick Devlin and Greg Daniels, Squire Patton Boggs. 

  • Light at the end of the tunnel

    Sometimes it feels to me like only yesterday that the monoline industry had seven active participants and was virtually the sole avenue for accessing the capital markets for infrastructure bonds. On other days, it seems like a distant memory, something from a different era. By Dominic Nathan, managing director, Assured Guaranty (Europe) Ltd.

  • Ireland back on track

    In April, financial close was reached on the eagerly awaited N17/ N18 Gort to Tuam PPP motorway project in Ireland. The scheme follows on from the N7/N11 PPP scheme closed in 2013 and is the largest transportation project within the current wave of availability transportation PPPs being procured by the National Road Authority. By Anne Andrieux, director, infrastructure project finance and asset based finance, Societe Generale.

  • Demystifying bonding the A11

    The A11 PPP is a DBFM project to create a fast road connection between the port of Bruges-Zeebrugge in Flanders, Belgium and its hinterland. It is approximately 13km long but incorporates nearly 90 civil engineering structures, including twin moveable bridges over a canal, a viaduct and three tunnels. By Helga Van Peer and Tim Conduit, partners in Allen & Overy LLP, based in Brussels and London respectively.

  • Monitoring the needs of a project

    The financing of an infrastructure project requires the creation of a covenanted structure that provides the borrower with the scope within which to operate in an efficient and effective manner, while affording creditors sufficient control to promote debt service coverage and covenant compliance through the transaction life. By Iain Barbour, Bishopsfield Capital Partners.

  • A national infrastructure bank at work

    As the US public-private partnership market for infrastructure development has grown and evolved rapidly in the last 15 years, the tools for financing these P3s have similarly grown and evolved. By Stephanie Wagner, associate,  Mayer Brown.

  • Institution takes infrastructure risks

    Allianz has taken a leading role among institutional investors in the European infrastructure debt market over the past year. The investor has financed its way through €2bn worth of deals, taking an increasingly active approach to different types of project risk. By Stefano Berra.

  • PIR – Poland's PPP investor

    State-backed equity investor PIR has secured roles on several municipal PPPs after being set up last year. But with Z10bn searching for a home and few projects to find, questions are being asked if it’s really needed in the market. By Colin Leopold.

  • NSW and Qld go-ahead with wires sales

    The Australian states of Queensland and New South Wales are moving to sell their poles and wires power infrastructure in deals worth more than A$50bn. Sponsors, lenders and infrastructure funds are keen to grab a slice of the action but the final political hurdle of securing public support is still to be jumped. By John Arbouw.

  • Going underground in Lima

    The US$5.66bn concession for Lima’s first underground metro line is the biggest infrastructure project in Peru. It has also been one of the smoothest. By Adrian Murdoch.
