    Description
    Objectives

    Investments in the wastewater disposal and treatment facilities of the city of Cologne.

    The project concerns the 2014 to 2019 investment programme to improve the efficiency of Köln’s wastewater services, through reconstruction and upgrading of sewer systems and modernisation of the wastewater treatment plants.

    Environmental aspects
    Procurement

    The schemes included in the project fall under Annex II of Directive 2011/92/EC. Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) procedures are carried out where required by the competent authorities and mitigating measures are applied as appropriate. In addition, for any part of the scheme that may impact on a nature conservation site (NATURA 2000), the promoter will be required to provide to the Bank information on the mitigating measures needed to comply with the Habitats Directive 92/43/EC and the Birds Directive 2009/147/EC.

    The Bank will require the promoter to ensure that contracts for the implementation of the project have been/shall be tendered in accordance with the relevant applicable EU procurement legislation Dir 2004/18/EEC, with parallel publication of tender notices in the EU Official Journal, as and where appropriate.

    Disclaimer

    Before financing approval by the Board of Directors, and before loan signature, projects are under appraisal and negotiation. The data provided on this page is therefore indicative and cannot be considered to represent official EIB policy (see also the Explanatory notes).
