Investments in electricity and gas distribution networks for 2016-2019 mainly in the Milan and Brescia areas. Investments in gas networks cover also other areas in Northern Italy (i.e, Bergamo, Lodi, Piacenza, Pavia, Cremona, Alessandria) and in the Abruzzo Region. Investments in public lighting are in Milan and Brescia and will be carried out in 2015 and 2016.
The project will enable the beneficiaries to connect new users as well as to maintain or improve the reliability and quality standards of electricity and gas supply.
The project will concern the implementation of medium and low-voltage schemes in electricity distribution and medium and low-pressure gas distribution schemes, some of which may require the competent national authority to determine the need for an environmental impact assessment (EIA). The project schemes are expected to have minimal environmental impact.
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 (Directives 2004/18/EC and/or 2004/17/EC as well as Directives 89/665/EEC and 92/13/EEC) as interpreted by the Court of Justice of the EU, with publication of tender notices in the EU Official Journal, as and where required.
