Description

The Cotonou Agreement is a treaty between the European Union and the African, Caribbean and Pacific Group of States ("ACP countries"). A contribution to sustainable development is a relevant aim of the Cotonou Agreement, that entered into force in 2003 and was subsequently revised in 2005 and 2010. Since January 2018 the Senegal government has about 350 Meuros to be used for implementation of projects aimed at the reduction of poverty, while contributing to sustainable development and to the gradual integration of the country into the world economy. An Italian company, that since 1971 has gradually enlarged their "know how" in planning and managing environmental and industrial facility, had the opportunity to get in contact with Dakar municipality and to have detailed information regarding the city problems related to the absence of plants and facilities that allow to recover waste and sanitize the urban area. The local market in Dakar creates a high amount of organic waste on daily base. The waste should be treated and processed, in order to obtain fertilizer for agronomic use and biogas for energy production, allowing the cold storage of fruit and vegetable to be sold at the local market. The company has already carried out a feasibility study regarding a waste recovery (280.000 tonnes/year) and fertilizer production project to be implemented in that area, and is looking for plant construction companies interested to be involved in the drawing up of the executive project preliminary to the call for tender. The company’s partners will have adequate experience and skills in biowaste recovery aimed at fertilizer and energy production, since their role will include the technical and operational project implementation. The activities are expected to be funded within the National Indicative Programme set according to the Cotonou Agreement. The national government will launch a call for tender, and the European Commission will assign directly to the call winner the total amount requested for the project implementation.

EEN help you find the right partner, rather than you going it alone.

Our role is to review and collate the most suitable submissions, and then send them to the client who posted the opportunity. We consult with you, and the client, to make the process professional and easy.

These are live opportunities. Your registration of interest on the site is just like a professional approach to a business at a networking event. To stand the best chance of success, make your submission really sing. Sell why the client who posted the opportunity should work with you. Excite them. Ask questions. Try and avoid copy and pasting words from elsewhere.

Once the client has chosen their partner, we'll introduce them over email and keep in touch with both parties to see how it's going. Sometimes things progress quickly. Sometimes because of changing priorities for either party, things progress slowly, but you never know - your next big business break could start right here.
