    Environmental aspects

    The installation of wireless telecommunication networks do not fall under Annexes I and II of the EU Directive 2011/92/EU as amended and are therefore not subject to mandatory Environmental Impact Assessment. There is no particular negative residual environmental impact expected.

    Procurement

    The promoter has been assessed by EIB as being a private company not operating in the utilities sector and not having a status of a contracting entity, thus not being subject to EU rules on public procurement.
