The project concerns investments expected to be carried out in existing facilities, already authorised, and which would therefore not require an environmental impact assessment (EIA) under Directive 2011/92/EU. At appraisal, it will be determined if any of the activities to be carried out would require a change to existing environmental permits
The promoter is a private company not operating in the utilities sector, and is thus not covered by EU directives on procurement.
