Proposed EIB finance (Approximate amount)
EUR 520 million

This programme operation will most likely primarily concern investments in research, development, innovation and technology deployment that are expected to be carried out in existing facilities without changing their already authorised scope.
The promoters will most likely be private companies not operating in the utilities sector and not having a status of a contracting entity, thus not subject to EU rules on public procurement.
