New Request for Proposals also issued for Delwaide Development Zone

Antwerp Port Authority has issued a new Request for Proposals (RfP) for the Churchill Industrial Zone in the port area. The previous RfP for this site concluded at the beginning of 2015 without any concrete result despite having been extended for an additional period, and so the entire site remains available for industrial projects that would create substantial added value and employment. So far, however, no suitable projects have been submitted. The Port Authority board of directors therefore decided on Monday evening to issue a new RfP for the Churchill Industrial Zone, aimed specifically at “circular economy” projects.
