Szabó Péter Mayor of Paks, János Bana Vice Mayor and Péter Kiss, the new CEO of Protheus Holding plc. negotiated with the representatives of Eurepean Investment Bank in Brussels. The discussion was about the ELENA project with the amount of 2 million Euros assistance.
The aim of the discussion was to clear up the conditions in connection with the operation of ELENA and Protheus Holding plc. It became clear that a requirement of the Bank is let the Municipality be their partner not any other organisations. So every activity connected to the project goes through the Municipality. Protheus Holding plc. is going to operate as a supporting organization serving only the practical tasks.
The Municipality would like to create a garage and charging station for the electric buses. Choosing the right location for this garage is ongoing. A solar cell park is also planned. The electricity produced this way is able to occupy the electric bus system of Paks, it means that the buses are mainly going to operate by solar energy.
After this meeting it comes to the discharge of the first 40% of Technical Assistance.
