Total cost (Approximate amount)

USD 156 million (EUR 139 million)

Environmental aspects

RDI activities included in the project will not materially change current R&D practice and will be carried out within existing facilities already authorised for the same purpose and would therefore not require an Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) under the Directive 2014/52/EU amending the EIA Directive 2011/92/EU. Full environmental details will be verified during the appraisal.


The promoter is a private company not operating in the utilities sector and is thus not covered by EU Directives on procurement.
