    Environmental aspects

    The installation of mobile telecommunication networks do not fall under Annexes I and II of the Directive 2014/52/EU amending the Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) Directive 2011/92/EU, and are therefore not subject to mandatory Environmental Impact Assessment. There is no particular negative residual environmental impact expected.

    The promoter is a private company not operating in the Utilities sector not having the status of a contracting authority, and is thus not covered by EU Directives on procurement.
