Sweco has been given the assignment of leading the procurement for and supporting the construction of housing in six cities in western Ukraine. The objective is to quickly meet the needs of internally displaced people for housing, heating, water and electricity.There are currently 6.2 million internally displaced people in Ukraine. In response to the effects of the war, the EU has decided to finance housing, schools, pre-schools and hospitals as well as to repair infrastructure in liberated cities in Ukraine. Sweco’s assignment includes ensuring that European procurement norms are complied with when the project organisations procure contractors for the buildings in six municipalities located in the Western parts of Ukraine, which will receive new EU-funded IDP housing. The project starts immediately and is planned to continue for two years. Sweco will be collaborating with local Ukrainian consultants. The client is Nefco, the Nordic Green Bank, which is an international financial institution founded by the five Nordic countries. Nefco has broad experience of financing municipal projects in Ukraine and acts as an implementing agency for the EU’s actions to support Ukraine.
