Proposed EIB finance (Approximate amount)
EUR 125 million
Total cost (Approximate amount)
EUR 289 million
The project consists of research and development (R&D) activities that are not specifically mentioned in the Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) Directive 2011/92/EU (amended by 2014/52/EU) and that will be carried out in existing facilities without changing their already authorised scope. The project would therefore not require an EIA. However, the Bank's services will review all the project-related environmental details during the project appraisal.
The promoter is a private company not operating in the Utilities sector and not having the status of a contracting authority. Thus it is not covered by EU directives on procurement.
