The investment will improve living conditions and will ensure alignment with the EU standards. The operation will help build up economic and social resilience, placing priority on efficiency improvements.

    Environmental aspects

    By virtue of its technical characteristics and location of the related components, as well as their expected negligible impact on environment, the project is not likely to require an Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA). Neither the construction nor the operation phase of the DH Project will result in changes in the actual and potential environmental impacts of the current power plant operation. The Project will not entail any increase of coal consumption or associated emissions. During appraisal the Bank will ensure that the potential environmental and social impacts of the Project are properly evaluated and the Project is implemented in line with the Bank's Environmental and Social Standards.


    The related procurement processes has to follow the applicable public procurement rules and procedures will be examined during the appraisal and compliance with the EIB Guide to Procurement will be required.
