thinking a bit more about this, the text doesn't actually say that the licence is for "operating" (although it most likely is - and, as Marga says, is likely to "build" it as well). But since the text is ambiguous, I'd go for just "licence " as I already said.

There are plenty more in Google (though I think the word "concession" is fine too).
