News / Kick-off meeting for WBIF EU-funded project for Secondary Sewerage Network for Mostar City
On 13 March, the kick-off meeting for the Technical Assistance (TA) ’Secondary Sewerage Network for Mostar City – Phase 2: Updated Feasibility Study, ESIA, Detailed Design, Tender Dossiers’ was held in Mostar, Bosnia and Herzegovina. The European Union has provided a €700,000 grant through the Western Balkans Infrastructure Framework (WBIF) for this TA project. The EU grant will be implemented by Infrastructure Project Facility 11 (IPF 11) with loan financing planned to be provided by the European Investment Bank.
The City of Mostar, located approximately 120 km southwest of Sarajevo, is one of the largest cities in the Federation of Bosnia and Herzegovina. The city is located on the banks of the Neretva River, which runs through the Neretva Valley in the southern part of the country, prior to discharging into the Adriatic Sea.This project is an integral part of the programme for improving the sewage disposal of the area of Mostar ‘Mostar Urban Environmental and Water Quality Plan’ developed in 2004, with the main objective to ensure adequate living conditions for the population of Mostar.
The Project would allow for stopping currently untreated wastewater discharges into the Neretva River and, at the same time, would significantly increase the flow to the wastewater treatment plan and enable it to reach full design capacity and efficiency. The purpose of the TA and engineering services under this assignment is to develop the technical documentation with activities consisting of the update of the Feasibility Study, elaboration of the Environmental and Social Impact Assessment Study, development of the Detailed Design and preparation of the Tender Dossiers for construction works and supervision of works in full conformance with the legal framework in BiH, EU and EIB requirements and standards.
