Proposed EIB finance (Approximate amount)
EUR 40 million
Total cost (Approximate amount)
EUR 82 million
All project activities will be carried out in existing facilities and laboratories that will not change their already authorised scope and therefore do not require an environmental impact assessment (EIA) under Directive 2011/92/EU as amended. One project component, namely the greenfield development of a new production facility, is expected to require an EIA. All the environmental details will be assessed during the due diligence.
The promoter has been assessed by the EIB as being a private company not operating in the utilities sector and not having the status of a contracting entity, thus not subject to EU rules on public procurement.
