Environmental aspects

Based on their technical characteristics none of the programme components will require an Environmental Impact Assessment. The implementation will take place at the existing nuclear operational sites. The works are mostly related to replacement or refurbishment of existing equipment. The project activities are expected to have minimal environmental impact. The typically negative impacts are mainly temporary, relate to construction and installation works and can be well managed by appropriate measures taken during project implementation. The investments are expected to enhance nuclear and industrial safety and will introduce improvements in the areas of fire protection, occupational health and safety, radiation protection and environmental protection.


For procurement of goods, services and construction works related to the power generation the promoter follows public procurement procedures. The Bank will confirm that the procurement procedures implemented by the promoter ensure an appropriate selection of works, goods and services offered at competitive prices and in a timely manner.
