The proposed project would involve loan to Surgutsky Rayon, a municipality in the Khanty-Mansi Autonomous Okrug (the Okrug). The project would focus on priority investments to improve municipal district heating, water and wastewater infrastructure facilities and services in small settlements of Surgutsky Rayon. The project would also finance institutional strengthening of integrated municipal services company established in the due course of project implementation.
The proposed project follows the successful project in the City of Surgut currently under implementation. The project is likely to have significant demonstration effect as it will be the first project in municipal services sector, which will be co-financed by the local commercial bank. The transition potential of the operation relates to establishment of an integrated operating company providing services to settlements of the Surgutsky Rayon on a basis of an incentive based Service Contract. The project will also contribute towards strengthening of corporate governance standards in operating company through introduction of IFRS for financial reporting.
The municipality of Surgutsky Rayon will be the Borrower. The Khanty-Mansi Autonomous Okrug will provide a guarantee to support the project.
The loan up to RUB 810 million (equivalent to ~ EUR 23 million) to Surgutsky Rayon.
RUB 1,400 million (equivalent to ~ EUR 40.5 million)
The project has been screened B/1 requiring environmental analyses of the proposed multi-sector municipal services development programme.
The environmental analysis indicates that the project would have a positive overall benefit on public health and the environment. The operation will enable the Surgutsky Rayon to (i) reduce pollution of the drinking water by upgrading its water treatment facilities and distribution network; (ii) reduce pollution of the local rivers by rehabilitation of wastewater treatment facilities and collection network; (iv) reduce greenhouse gas emissions from the heating plants by increasing efficiency heating systems and upgrading boiler houses. The project will meet Russian environmental, health and safety standards and will contribute towards achieving compliance with relevant EU environmental standards.
Temporary environmental impacts may be generated during construction and land-take, such as increased level of noise, dust and traffic (in the settlements). Such temporary impacts, however, will be minimised through the incorporation of good management practice including forewarning and signing of works, restriction of working hours, development of traffic management schemes offering alternative routes to traffic and pedestrians, etc.

Text of the PIP
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.
