Total cost (Approximate amount)

RDI activities on power and control electronics (inverters, frequency converters, controllers and protections), electrical engineering and automation projects are not listed in any of the annexes of the Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) Directive 2014/52/EU amending the Directive 2011/92/EU. The financed activities will be carried out in already-authorised existing facilities, that will not change their scope due to the project, thus not requiring any additional environmental permits.
The promoter is a private company not operating in the Utilities sector and does not have the status of a contracting authority. Thus, it is not covered by EU Directives on procurement. Procedures followed are in the best interest of the project and satisfactory for the EIB.
