In order to develop the European SAT-AIS service, a PPP may be established contributing to the operations, service provision and / or procurement of the SAT-AIS infrastructure and / or through the utilisation of their own assets as part of the SAT-AIS.
The objectives of this study are thus:
The aim is to identify a win-win scheme, beneficial to all parties in particular with respect to:
We here below discuss a first list of seven key issues:
There are a number of main benefits arising from this study:
The various dimensions of the PPP case are thus studied via the following structured approach, which corresponds to the sequence of the project tasks:
The first step is to select and formalise our primary options for the proposed PPP:
Based on the above, the activity shall proceed (Task 2) with an estimation of the potential revenues.
A Parametric financial model shall be implemented and the financial modelling of the Business Case for the proposed options. One of the high-level objectives of the project is to review and provide feedback to the on-going phase B1 studies.
Finally, the definition of a PPP proposal requires consolidation of the previous elements and to define in detail the terms of the proposed PPP: service definition & service level agreements, commitment between the parties and risk sharing.
The last task will allow iterative refining and consolidation of the Business Case, PPP proposition, and recommendations to the phase B1 studies.
The study team performed the final presentation on the 26th July 2012.
