    Environmental aspects

    As the project has been screened-out of the EIA Directive based on the technical characteristics of the project and the criteria defined in the Dutch Decree on Environmental Impact Assessment, a formal request has been made to the promoter to provide a written confirmation from the competent authority that the project (including the basin and quay wall construction to be carried out by the Port of Rotterdam (PoR)) does not have a significant negative impact on any site of nature conservation importance.

    Procurement

    The detailed procurement procedures and their adequacy with the EIB Guide to Procurement will be determined during appraisal.
