The project tender
Through the international call for projects we seek to attract economic activity and employment to the area by making the site and the existing assets at the plant available to interested parties. After analysing the proposals submitted, the Committee assessing the initiatives has endorsed five of the eight projects that had been presented as binding proposals. From Endesa, we will be directly involved in three business plans: two of our own and a third included among the five initiatives which have received backing.
The proposals are declared suitable but with conditions, which means they are compatible with the territory, are linked to the mobility sector and the provision of social and health services. Two of these initiatives are linked to the manufacture of industrial products and construction materials through the use of by-products from industrial processes and waste; and one is a hydrogen production plant with Endesa’s involvement as an industrial partner. Compostilla could become a benchmark for sustainable mobility, social health services and the circular economy on a national scale.
The three projects that did not obtain the qualification of “suitable” were not, however, rejected by the evaluation committee. Given their characteristics, it is considered that they would be more suitable in other spaces in the area which are enabled for such purpose. All the participants comprising the technical committee are committed to providing these projects with the support and follow-up to enable them to assume their place in the economic fabric of the territory.
The tender procedure has been developed in different phases:
Request for expressions of interest
All interested parties should submit the Expression of Interest document using the template available in the Documentation section and put forward a project execution and launch proposal. This may relate to the whole site or simply part of the site.
In order to prepare the project summary, those interested can consult all of the information available on this website.
The Expression of Interest document can be submitted up until 31/01/2020 at 14:00 via email to firstname.lastname@example.org. The document must be signed, along with its attachments.
By sending the Expression of Interest document to the specified email address, full acceptance of all terms and conditions stipulated in the process for requesting expressions of interest document included in the Documentation section will be assumed.
Those shortlisted after the first stage will receive a letter of invitation to continue onto the second stage, in which they will have to complete the proposed project with an economic-financial business plan, a timeline and a sustainability assessment that covers the various social, occupational and environmental impacts.
The shortlisting process will be an ongoing process once the Expression of Interest document has been submitted. The second stage of the process encompasses 'due diligence', a site inspection and the offer regarding the transaction proposed by the interested party in accordance with the project.
Finally, an evaluation board, comprising different public administrations, the University of León and Endesa will analyse the suitability of the proposals submitted from a social and sustainability point of view (which pass the second phase). This objective of this body will be to assess the adequacy of the projects with regard to the needs of the area, their business viability and their ability to generate employment.
The process will culminate in the selection of valid projects and the signing of agreements with the developers.
