The European Bank for Reconstruction and Development has made public the list of companies that were selected for the second stage of the tender for the construction of the first in Ukraine waste recycling plant in Lviv. Three companies from Poland, Germany, Greece and two consortia from Austria and Turkey, the Netherlands and Lithuania have already built similar waste processing plants in Europe and were selected by the Bank from among 12 applicants from 11 countries of the world.
The winner of the tender will be chosen according to the results of the next two stages – a technical stage, which will check the compliance of the technical solutions of the companies with the technical tasks of the customer, as well as a competition stage, which will concern the cost of construction.
“Altogether, 12 companies from 11 countries had taken part in the tender. Yesterday we received a decision of the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development saying that 5 companies entered the next stage. These are the most famous structures that built very modern factories in different countries of the world.
The land has been allocated, the project is ready, we are waiting for the final decision of the EBRD about the company that will build the plant in Lviv, and we will start the construction in the next year. This will be one of the first plants in Ukraine,” said Lviv Mayor Andriy Sadovyi.
We shall recall that Lviv is dealing with the problem of solid waste management. In two years, the city will have the first in Ukraine modern waste recycling plant with European technology for mechanical and biological waste treatment, will reclamate the old landfill and will introduce a new waste management system.
For this purpose, the city received a 25-million-euro loan from the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development and a 10-million-euro grant of irrevocable financial assistance from environmental funds. The contribution of the city itself makes up 6.75 million euros.
