This contract is the largest ever Public Private Partnership (PPP) tender in Poland. The bid of SITA Zielona Energia - a joint venture between SITA Polska, a subsidiary of SUEZ ENVIRONNEMENT, and Maguerite Waste Polska, a subsidiary of the Marguerite Fund(1) - was selected by the City of Poznań as the result of a two-year tender procedure and announced in December 2012. Estimated to 180 million euros, the construction of this energy from waste plant will be financed by a long term non-recourse project finance debt and will generate total revenue of approximately 850 million euros for SITA Zielona Energia during the period of operation. Under this project, SITA Zielona Energia will design, build and finance an energy-fromwaste plant with a capacity of 210,000 tons per year, which will then be operated for 25 years by SITA Polska. SITA Zielona Energia will deliver this facility by 2016, on a plot provided by the city of Poznan. Through this first Public Private Partnership in the field of waste management, SUEZ ENVIRONMENT intends to offer its expertise and know-how to Polish local governments who are keen to change their waste management policy by encouraging recovery. The plant is expected to reduce significantly the disposal of waste in local landfills, in accordance with the EU Landfill Directive and Poland's Law on Waste. *** SITA POLSKA Since 1992, SITA Polska has been providing waste management and urban cleaning solutions to local communities, industries and businesses.
