Project Description

Procurement and installation of modern air traffic control equipment and associated services.

Operation objectives: (a) to ensure aviation safety in the Ukrainian air space according to the policies and procedures of the International Civil Aviation Organisation; (b) to help to attract incremental overflight traffic to realise hard currency earnings potential; (c) to assist the borrower in its institutional transformation into a commercially run company.

Transition Impact

Transition indicators related to the project include:

(i) skill transfer - the Bank will provide support to UKSATSE management for a project that will have investment implications not only for the aviation sector but also for the company's involvement with foreign financing methods and procurement procedures (consultancy assistance to be provided to the Project Implementation Unit);

(ii) competition/market structure - the project will ensure implementation of market-oriented management and operational practices in providing air navigation services;

(iii) institutional functioning - the main operational procedures and methods (including financial reporting and business planning) will be revised and adapted to modern operational standards with the assistance of the management information systems consultants which the airport will employ under the terms and conditions of the loan.

The Client

Ukrainian State Air Traffic Services Enterprise (UKSATSE), a state-owned company operating the air navigation system in Ukraine.

EBRD Finance

US$ 25.4 million (ECU 20.1 million) loan.

Project Cost

Environmental Impact

Independent Project Accountability Mechanism (IPAM)

If efforts to address environmental, social or public disclosure concerns with the Client or the Bank are unsuccessful (e.g. through the Client’s Project-level grievance mechanism or through direct engagement with Bank management), individuals and organisations may seek to address their concerns through the EBRD’s Independent Project Accountability Mechanism (IPAM).

IPAM independently reviews Project issues that are believed to have caused (or to be likely to cause) harm. The purpose of the Mechanism is: to support dialogue between Project stakeholders to resolve environmental, social and public disclosure issues; to determine whether the Bank has complied with its Environmental and Social Policy or Project-specific provisions of its Access to Information Policy; and where applicable, to address any existing non-compliance with these policies, while preventing future non-compliance by the Bank.

Please visit the Independent Project Accountability Mechanism webpage to find out how to submit a Request for review through our confidential online form, by email, mail or telephone. IPAM is available to discuss your concerns and answer any questions you may have about the submission or handling of Requests, which follow the Project Accountability Policy and Guidance. Requestors’ identities may be kept confidential, upon request.
