Launching the Gotland-Ventspils-Saaremaa ship route that has been in the planning stage for several years depends on the results of yet another procurement, the end of which is hard to forecast, writes LETA/Saarte Haal.

"Ventspils free port is still conducting a procurement," said representative of the town of Kuressaare Ingrid Tilts. "I communicated with them, the Ventspils side, a week ago and they promised to let know when they get anywhere with the procurement," she added.


As to whether there is hope that the route could be opened this year, Tilts said: "This is a major international procurement and when the papers finally correspond to conditions, there is hope."


The route was to be opened last summer but was not since ether previous procurement took too much time.
