In particular, it added, the project is part of Policy Objective 2 entitled “A greener Europe, with low carbon emissions”, which promotes investment in clean energy, cyclical economy and adaptation to climate change.

Policy Objective 2 includes water management and protection projects, such as drinking water pipelines, sewerage, water supply replacements, smart water meters, flood defenses and erosion protection of coastal fronts, with a total budget of € 195 million.

The tender for the construction contract of the project will be announced in the first quarter of 2022 and its implementation is expected to begin in the second half of 2022.
