The document was also signed by the Governor of the Sakhalin Region Valery Limarenko, General Director of the Russian Environmental Operator Denis Butsaev and First Vice President of Gazprombank JSC Roman Panov.
The roadmap involves the creation of a modern high-tech MSW management infrastructure in the region. Preparatory measures include determination of land plots for MSW management facilities, implementation of measures which will help to ensure the sustainability of the regional operator, as well as bringing the territorial scheme for the production and consumption waste management in line with the federal scheme.
According to the signed roadmap, an investment project should be ready by October 2022, followed by the signing of a concession agreement. The start of construction of MSW facilities is scheduled for September 2023, commissioning – for the end of 2024.
“We are glad to become a part of this project important for the Sakhalin Region. I am sure that the experience and expertise accumulated at Citymatic JSC in the field of MSW management, as well as our partnerships with Gazprombank and Russian Environmental Operator, will become a good basis for creating and developing the MSW management infrastructure required in the region,” noted Sergey Kotlyarenko.
