Contracts signed with contractors in the project to improve energy efficiency
The signing of contracts with four selected contractors in the project “Improvement of energy efficiency and the use of renewable energy sources at Ericsson Nikola Tesla d.d.” marked the completion of the first phase of the works. These works will reduce the yearly energy consumption by more than 4.6 million kWh as well as reduce CO2 emissions by nearly 1400 tonnes.
In addition to the representatives of the host company and of the contractors – Kvantum d.o.o., Termomonting d.o.o., CROTAL d.o.o. and COTRA d.o.o. – representatives of the Ministry of Environment and Energy and the Environmental Protection and Energy Efficiency Fund were present at the signing of the contracts. Following thorough preparation and a transparent call for tenders, mid-May 2019 will begin the second phase, which is an operational phase. During this phase, by the end of the next year, energy consolidation of the production site will be carried out; the main heat exchange station with corresponding substations will be constructed as will the main cooling station and outdoor connecting pipelines; building envelopes of the two largest buildings on the company campus will be renewed; new heating, ventilation and air-conditioning systems will be set up; and a significantly more efficient lighting system will be installed.
In accordance with the grant agreement from June 2018, Ericsson Nikola Tesla’s project which is worth approximately HRK 70 million is co-funded by the European Union with a maximum of HRK 20 million from European Structural and Investment Funds in the framework of the “Competitiveness and Cohesion” Operational Program 2014-2020.
