The character of Ballast Nedam Concessions
"The close cooperation with many of our organisational units makes us unique," explains Bart. "In the field of renewable energy, we often work together with Ballast Nedam Renewables, while for Public-Private Partnerships, we work more closely with Ballast Nedam Infra Projects or Ballast Nedam Building Projects." Even though the Concessions team deals with various specialists, there is one thing they all have in common: a positive mindset combined with a focus on making a project a success. This is reflected in a flexible attitude, openness to investing in long-term partnerships and the contribution of knowledge on a national and international level.
Financing and realising projects
For this, Ballast Nedam's many years of experience in civil engineering projects, its design and engineering department and the ability to attract international project finance are all very valuable. One example is the DBFM project A24 Blankenburgverbinding, which involved working with Korean investors for the first time. Furthermore, the Justitieel Complex Zaanstad PPP project was realised with institutional investors and was also the first entirely energy-neutral Dutch PPP project to be completed.
A selection of projects
Ballast Nedam Concessions has dozens of challenging projects to its name. A selection of the portfolio:
A9 Gaasperdammer tunnel
Hart van Zuid
Construction of New Prison Complex in Zaanstad
30 years of experience with Public-Private Partnerships
Bringing the builder and financier together
Bart Buyck has been Managing Director of Ballast Nedam Concessions since 20018. Bart unites technical, financial and legal disciplines to structure a project in such a way that it can be financed by both equity and loan capital. Ultimately, this results in attractive business cases for Ballast Nedam, with which we can make a difference as a company.
