Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Same sort of government accounting logic as Private Finance Initiative (government funded schools and hospitals built and run by private enterprise) in the UK. If its off the budget and profits the private sector, it does not matter that it will in the long run lose the state money compared to doing it all on the budget in the normal way.
