II.1.2)Main CPV code
45231300 Construction work for water and sewage pipelines
II.1.3)Type of contract
II.1.4)Short description:

JRC-Ispra has an extensive water and sewage distribution network, a district heating system and other related facilities (water treatment, filtration, technical rooms, etc.). Certain water and sewer lines are quite old and require continuous renovation and/or maintenance work. Most of the time the lines are completely renewed by replacing the entire line with a new one. These lines are generally installed underground or in technical tunnels, and are quite long. Furthermore, the construction of new buildings and structures, as well as the willingness of the EC to increase the use of environmentally friendly materials, as well as to reduce the carbon footprint of the site, lead to a growing need to replace existing lines in order to adapt them to new requirements in terms of capacity and respect for the environment.

The aim of the contract will mainly consist in the execution of construction and renovation works of the water and sewerage distribution network.
