The major part of the investments will concern Research, Development and Innovation (RDI) activities likely within existing facilities. A further part refers to the extension of an existing data centre. Therefore, it is unlikely that the project will fall under Annex I and II of EU Directive 2014/52/EU amending the Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) Directive 2011/92/EU. Nevertheless, the environmental details including environmental objectives of the RDI programme and in particular the data centre extension will be assessed during the appraisal.
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. The Bank's services will verify details during the project's due diligence.
