Project Description

The EBRD is considering a long-term loan to finance the upgrade of the wastewater collection and transportation infrastructure to allow further urban development and construction of affordable housing in the new district of the City.

Transition Impact

The Project will support institutional strengthening and tariff reform drawing on success of the previous EBRD funded projects. The Project will support sustainable development of urban engineering infrastructure and contribute to development of a transparent full-cost recovery tariff policy for municipal water and wastewater services through introduction of connection charges to finance strategic infrastructure investments for urban development on the basis of a multi-year tariff framework.

The Client

Surgut Municipal Unitary Enterprise “GorVodokanal” (the “Company”), a water and wastewater operator owned by the city of Surgut, responsible for provision of water and wastewater services to the city residents.

EBRD Finance

Long term loan facility to the Company of up to RUB 1,600 million (~ EUR 35.6 million).

Project Cost

Total project cost: RUB 2,022 million (~ EUR 44.9 million).

Environmental Impact

Screened B in accordance with the EBRD’s 2008 Environmental and Social Policy. The project involves an upgrade of the wastewater collection infrastructure for the existing Client, and it is expected to further improve operating efficiency and environmental standards on the wastewater collection services in the City of Surgut. The environmental and social due diligence will need to establish compliance with the relevant Performance Requirements (PRs). It will include a review the current status of the existing facilities by means of an environmental and social review, and will assess the environmental and social benefits and impacts of the proposed project components by means of an analysis. An Environmental & Social Action Plan (ESAP) will need to be prepared based on the outcomes of the due diligence, and a Stakeholder Engagement Plan (SEP). The environmental and social due diligence will be carried out prior to Final Review.

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.
