Another major player - the Clean City group of companies submitted seven projects from five regions of the Southern Federal District (Astrakhan, Rostov, Volgograd Regions, Kalmykia and Adygea) for more than 6 billion rubles for consideration to the REO, the chairman of the board of directors cities »Polina Vergun.
These are objects for the treatment and disposal of waste, including recycling.
The structure of "Rostec" company "RT-invest" (the largest operator for waste management of the Moscow region) has not yet disclosed its offer of REO, said its representative. For the time being, the companies cooperate only on the installation of recycling machines.
Support for the REO will be given to the projects most needed by the regions, as well as the most developed ones, a top manager of one of the market participants believes. In the field of waste management, 23 concession tenders were announced worth a total of 38.8 billion rubles, as well as 10 private initiatives with total investments of 15.8 billion rubles, according to the National Association of Concessionaires and long-term investors in infrastructure (NAICD) on June 17.
The struggle for state support has aggravated the confrontation between companies in the regions, a top manager of one of the market participants comments: A REO can help only one project. Those who claimed to be the regional operator, but were not chosen, decided that this was their chance to stay in business, says the source of Vedomosti.
In total, it will be necessary to attract about 300 billion rubles to reform the industry. private money, said earlier Butsaev. But, according to NAKDI, over the past 10 years there were only 19 projects worth 30 billion rubles in the field of municipal waste management.
The selection criteria are unclear, says KPMG analyst Ivan Barsola. While the methodology is not made public, it is difficult to understand how support will be distributed, agrees Daria Godunova, managing partner of Pioneers PPP. There are many questions from regional investors about the selection methodology, said Alexander Dolgov, partner and head of PPP and infrastructure practice at Squire Patton Boggs. REO is a new company and not all procedures are fully debugged, therefore the appearance of criteria that are understandable to the market is a matter of the near future, he is sure. Another problem is extremely tight deadlines for project selection, says Barsola.
The choice of projects is extremely important, says NAKDI executive director Svetlana Bik: this toll road worries only those who drive it, and the ecology concerns everyone. The first step is sometimes necessary to do in extreme conditions, and the newly connected to the garbage reform REO, apparently, it is in such conditions, says Bick, but expects that in the future the company will become more transparent and public.
