Project Description:

The Unitary Enterprise Orshavodokanal (the “Company”) supported by the Government of Belarus (the “Government”) and the local administration (the “Rayispolkom”) approached the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (the “EBRD”, or the “Bank”) with a request to finance the priority investments in reconstruction and modernisation of the existing wastewater treatment facilities (the “PIP” or the ”Project”) to ensure compliance with the national and EU standards for effluent quality treatment. This Project is part of a wider framework which mainly aims at reducing pollution of the Baltic Sea basin, and to some extent also to the Black Sea basin.

The Project objective is to rehabilitate the existing wastewater treatment plant to achieve full compliance of the water and wastewater services with the national and EU standards.

Assignment Description:

The Client now intends to retain a consulting company (the Consultant) to provide assistance for institutional building in the form of a Corporate Development Programme and a Social Support Programme as detailed below (the Assignment).

The Assignment consists of two main Parts:

Part I: Corporate Development Programme for the Company

The Consultant shall assist the Company to improve its commercial standing, service and environmental performance by supporting the identification and implementation and, where necessary, the establishment of the corporate, financial, operational and environmental management required to become financially and operationally sustainable, and also to meet the related covenants included in the EBRD financing documents. The Consultant’s main task is to assist the Company to develop a short-medium term focused corporate development plan and to improve the corporate planning capacity to assist ongoing transition towards becoming a self-sustaining entity with commercially sustainable and gender-sensitive operations, as well as implementing the Environmental and Social Action Plan (ESAP) developed for the Company.

Part II: Social Support Programme

The second objective is to assess the existing social support mechanism for the gender-sensitive customer groups and the low income customers and assess how the Company makes use of it in terms of knowledge of its vulnerable customer base and its financial support needs. Following this assessment the Consultant will recommend improvements and actions for improved implementation by the Company. Belarus has a welfare system with subsidies to vulnerable groups, including subsidised utility services, which will bridge the affordability gap. The State and Rayispolkom have not provided direct subsidies to the low income families instead subsidies are provided to the Company to keep the tariff level low. In addition, cross-subsidisation between commercial and residential clients exists. Detailed mechanism needs to be developed and agreed between the Rayispolkom and the Company and reflected in the Public Service Agreement to be signed between the Rayispolkom and the Company. It is noted that this may be somewhat limited by the fact that the tariffs for the residential clients are set on the country level. The Bank will be in parallel working with the Government of Belarus on the tariff related benchmarks. The counterparts of Part II are the Company,the Rayispolkom and potentially Oblispolkom.

Belarus Water Sector Framework - Polotsk Water Subproject - Polotsk WW - Feasibility Study

 | Published March 20, 2015  -  Deadline April 13, 2015
cpvs

AMENDMENT: The Closing Date for receipt of Expressions of Interest is changed to Monday 13 April 2015 at 14:00 London time. Project Description: The Unitary Enterprise Polotskvodokanal (the "Company") supported by the Government of Belarus (the "Government") and the administration of the City of Polotsk (the "City") approached the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (the "EBRD", or the "Bank") with a request to finance the priority investments in construction of the new wastewater treatment facilities in the City including aeration tanks, sedimentation tanks, sludge pumps, air blowers, etc. (the "PIP" or the "Project") to ensure compliance with the national and EU standards and recommendations by the Baltic Marine Environment Protection Commission – Helsinki Commission ("HELCOM") for effluent quality treatment. The Company, a water distribution and wastewater treatment company, is 100 per cent owned by the City. The Project is one of the first three subprojects (together with subprojects in Orsha and Lida) under the Belarus Water Sector Framework (the "Framework" or "BWSF"). The current Framework aims mainly at reducing pollution of the Baltic Sea basin, and to some extent also to the Black Sea basin. It follows the first wave of projects signed by the Bank in 2012 to rehabilitate the wastewater treatment facilities in Vitebsk, Slonim and Baranovichi which are now being implemented. The City does not have its own wastewater treatment plant and would like to construct one that would serve the entire population of 85,000 people and commercial customers in Polotsk. The construction of the wastewater treatment plant in Polotsk commenced in 2008 aimed at commissioning the plant into operation in 2010. During 2008-2010 the construction was financed from the Republican and Oblast budgets. It is estimated that approximately 20 per cent of the works had been completed before the works stopped in 2011 due to the lack of financing. On this basis, the Bank is looking to engage a suitably qualified consultant (the "Consultant") to prepare a feasibility study, which shall include inter alia: a) identification and a detailed assessment of the PIP that will cover the period of 13 years, (i.e. the financing period) and evaluate its benefits, including assessing its environmental and social feasibility; b) detailed financial analysis of the Company, as well as; c) preparation of overall procurement and project implementation plans. The Feasibility Study will determine the priority investments for the Project, which will be financed by the EBRD loan and will form the basis for project appraisal and approval by the EBRD and the Government. The Feasibility Study will provide detailed calculations of financial Internal Rate of Return ("IRR") and Economic IRR ("EIRR") for the Project. The overall objective of the assignment is to prepare a feasibility study for the Company and the City, which the Bank can use to appraise the Project and take a decision on the prospective financing. The feasibility study shall be in line with international requirements for such studies. Specific objectives of the assignment shall include, inter alia: - Development of an affordable, least cost and cost effective bankable investment programme for the Company; - Financial analysis of the Company and preparation of financial projections. The projections shall be fully consistent with the proposed PIP, strategic development plan and be based on prudent assumptions on the Company's revenues and expenditures. Financial projections shall include annual balance sheets, income and cash flow statements; - Determination of an efficient implementation strategy for the PIP; - Once the Project/PIP has been confirmed, screen the project against the EBRD’s Environmental and Social Policy (2014, “ESP”) and associated Performance Requirements ("PRs") to determine the project category (A or B) and the environmental and social due diligence required; - If the project is categorised as B, and once agreed with the EBRD, carry out the Environmental and Social Assessment (E and S Due Diligence – “ESDD”) of the proposed project to identify its environmental and social risks, impacts and benefits and to structure the Project to comply with the ESP and PRs. If the Project is categorised as A, this ToR will be revised by the EBRD; - Identify potential energy saving and materials efficiency measures (i.e. adequate sludge management / disposal solutions). The Feasibility Study will provide an overview of the Company’s procedures and technical, operational, environmental, social, and financial performance, and should form the basis for agreeing on the Company’s restructuring objectives in the loan document (e.g. reduction in water losses, improvements in tariff collections, standards of treatment, etc.).Status of Selection Process: Interested firms or groups of firms are hereby invited to submit expressions of interest. Assignment Start Date and Duration: The Assignment is expected to start in May 2015 and has an estimated overall duration of 3 months. Cost Estimate for the Assignment: EUR 280,000 (exclusive of VAT). The Consultant must determine whether any VAT would be chargeable on the services and the basis for that determination, without taking into consideration the special status of the Bank as an IFI and state this to the Bank in their response to the Invitation for Expressions of Interest. To the extent that a Consultant incurs input VAT on goods and services purchased in connection with the provision of services (e.g. VAT on airline ticket) which is not otherwise recoverable by the consultant from the local tax authority, the gross cost to the consultant of such expenses shall be treated as a reimbursable expense.
