Milan, Italy (PRWEB) June 04, 2013
MWH Global – the wet infrastructure sector leader and provider of strategic consulting, environmental engineering and construction services – has been appointed to the Capacity building project, promoted by BREA, the Belarusian Renewable Energy Association.
The project - funded by the Central European Initiative thanks to the Italian government’s contributions and initiated by the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD) - aims to boost the renewable energy sector in Belarus.
The main goal of the project is to strengthen the international cooperation capacity of BREA by raising awareness about the Belarus market potential and attracting foreign investors. Belarus regulation is supporting the development of the energy sector by enabling an energy mix diversification and increasing the use of internal resources.
Over the next 15 months, a team of Italian and local experts - in close cooperation with BREA - will transfer the relevant know-how to Belarus renewable energy operators, position the association as a key player in the sector and develop a long term strategic vision.
Thanks to its sound experience in the energy sector - also in Eastern Europe - MWH Global will lead up the project as technical advisor of BREA. Raffaella Valeriani, Power & Energy business line manager of MWH in Italy, said: "The Capacity building project represents the opportunity to grow our business in the Belarusian market, while allowing sharing our globally renowned sustainability expertise with the client."
“The renewable energy sector in our country is living the momentum, and we have to enhance and support the local potential. I am confident that the Capacity building project will make it possible. Our international and local partners will face the challenge by bringing along an extensive experience and know-how," said Mr. Vladimir Petrovich Nistsiuk, president at the BREA.
