Under the project Unicase conducts a review of technical and economic justifications and decisions related to investment attractiveness necessary for the implementation of procurements. We prepare all the legal documentation related to tenders and provide legal assessment to Uzbekhydroenergy JSC and its technical and financial advisors to develop a procurement scheme. We also develop a detailed structure of competitive procurement processes and offer legal consultations to individuals involved in the implementation of hydropower trading.
