Proposed EIB finance (Approximate amount)
EUR 50 million
Total cost (Approximate amount)
EUR 103 million
Investments in fixed telecommunications projects (mainly civil works for urban underground copper/fibre roll-out) do not fall under Annex I or II of Directive 2014/52/EU amending the Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) Directive 2011/92/EU. The related works have limited residual environmental effects, as the trenching works are typically carried out alongside roads and make use of the latest technologies to limit the civil works impact as much as possible.
The promoter has been assessed by the EIB as being a private company not being subject to EU rules on public procurement and concessions. However, if after the project appraisal, the EIB were to conclude that the promoter is after all subject to EU public procurement legislation (i.e. Directive 2014/25/EU), then the Bank would require the promoter to ensure that contracts for the implementation of the project are tendered in accordance with the relevant applicable EU procurement legislation (Directive 2014/25/EU and Directive 92/13/EEC), as interpreted by the Court of Justice of the EU, with publication of tender notices in the Official Journal of the EU, as and where required.
