10 Dec 2020


PLANET S.A., the top accredited Greek firm in management consulting and project management leading an international Joint Venture, was awarded the European Investment Bank tender for the “Infrastructure Project Facility — Technical Assistance 10 (IPF 10)” with a total budget of 24.5 mil. Euros.

The Project – with expected total duration of 4 years – involves provision of services towards preparation of a pipeline of large-scale infrastructure projects across all Western Balkan countries (Albania, Bosnia & Herzegovina, Kosovo, Montenegro, North Macedonia and Serbia) which will be funded by international financing institutions (E.U., European Investment Bank, European Bank for Reconstruction and Development, World Bank, KfW, etc.) in the following sectors:

  • Transport
  • Environment & Sustainable Development
  • Energy
  • Social Infrastructure
  • Digital Infrastructure

This – unprecedented in Greek context – success is coming on top of a series of great international accomplishments of PLANET, which, despite prolonged pandemic and recession, was awarded and undertook implementation of a number of landmark international projects over the past six months, among which Framework Contracts to support European Investment Bank in transport sector and innovation, as well as Technical Assistance service contracts in West Africa, Western Balkans and Azerbaijan, with total budget in excess of 22 million euros.

These extremely significant achievements of PLANET come after systematically investing over the years on its international presence and activity. BoD Chairman and MD, Christos Giannakopoulos, noted in this respect that “Our Company’s outstanding performance at international level, despite strong competition by established European firms of universal calibre, justifies our strategic choice of being extrovert and further confirms our vision of PLANET’s leading role in the European consulting market of large-scale projects, as well as its key contribution in the formulation of the new socioeconomic setting in the countries of Southeast Europe and Western Balkans.”
