In light of the above, the Company has approached the EBRD with a request to assess the possibility of financing the following potential investments (the “Project”): • Installation of ‘horizontal’ heating systems in apartment buildings, apartment level metering or allocation and reinstatement of domestic hot water (DHW) supply; • SCADA system; • Implementation of a network hydraulic model and management information system. The estimated value of the Project is EUR 10 million and the EBRD is considering a loan of up to EUR 8.0 million where EUR 7.0 million will be provided for the Bank’s account and approximately EUR 1.0 million from the Green Climate Fund (“GCF”). The loan is expected to be complemented by a capex grant of approximately EUR 2.0 million. Assignment Description: EBRD intends to select and contract a consulting company (the “Consultant”) to provide the Bank with the information, analysis and recommendations it needs to comprehensively assess, structure and approve the Project through carrying out a Feasibility Study. The selected Consultant is expected to provide the following services: • Collect data to establish a baseline for comparison and identify the key outcomes to be achieved • Develop a Long Term Investment Programme (“LTIP”), outlining the strategic investment needs of the Client, and based on this produce a detailed Priority Investment Programme (“PIP”) • Prepare a financial and economic analysis of the Project and the Company • Prepare an Environmental and Social Assessment of the Project • Prepare a draft procurement and implementation strategy, taking into consideration the Bank’s PP&R for Public Sector Operations Undertake all necessary Green Economy Transition (“GET”) assessments in line with the Bank’s GET methodology • Prepare an overall Project risk assessment, which identifies the relative severity of each risk identified in relation to the Project The detailed scope of work and services (the “Services”) of the Assignment are further described in the Full Terms of Reference (the “ToR”) which can be accessed from the following link: http://www.ebrd.com/documents/procurement/83279-tors.pdf
