Project Description

The proposed project will provide finance to upgrade and extend the sewage network and construction of wastewater treatment plant in the City of Sisak and thus reduce the amount of pollution currently being discharged directly into the surrounding rivers, which ultimately flow into the Danube.

Transition Impact

The proposed project is expected to provide significant transition impact through increased commercialisation of the municipal water company, including improved cost efficiency, long-term planning, implementation of a cost recovery tariff model, and preparation of a Public Service Contract between the City and the Company.

The Client

EBRD Finance

Senior loan of up to EUR 10 million to the Sisak Water Company. The project is designed to complement significant EU IPA co-financing of up to EUR 15 million.

Project Cost

Up to EUR 30.3 million.

Environmental Impact

The project is screened B/1. Environmental impacts associated with the upgrade of the municipal wastewater network; extension of the existing sewer network; and construction of a wastewater treatment plant with a capacity 50,000 population equivalent were identified and assessed, and mitigation measures were developed in an Environmental Analysis. The Environmental Audit of the existing facilities was also carried out.

Technical Cooperation

Consultants funded by the Government of Netherlands are engaged to review the investment plan and prepare the feasibility study together with the application for grant funding for EU IPA co-financing. The Project Implementation and Management Support to Company are also envisaged through technical assistance.
