We are pleased to announce that we have been shortlisted by the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD), as part of a consortium led by HPC AG, to implement its Municipal Infrastructure Programme in the Republic of Tajikistan and the Kyrgyz Republic.
Our participation in the programme entails the design of solid waste landfills, preparation of technical specifications for construction materials, and elaboration of tender documents for procurement of works and services. In addition, we will support our clients during evaluation of construction tenders and in drafting tender evaluation reports. We will also administer the implementation of contracts dealing with the supervision of construction works.
The Republic of Tajikistan and the Kyrgyz Republic face significant challenges in maintaining and improving their municipal infrastructure. Due to substantial under-investment over the last 20 years in both states, infrastructure has become dilapidated and substantial funding is required for modernization.
In response to these challenges, the EBRD has launched its tailor-made Municipal Infrastructure Programme building on a strong track record of supporting infrastructure reforms through well-designed projects combined with providing institutional support to local authorities to support critical investments in different towns, which would otherwise be difficult to finance on a stand-alone basis.
As a result of the collaboration foreseen under the programme, water, waste water and solid waste infrastructure is expected to be improved in Tajikistan and the Kyrgyz Republic.
