As stated by the EIB, the investment programme will finance the implementation of low carbon infrastructure at nine TEN-T airports located in Portugal that are operated under a long-term concession by ANA - Aeroportos de Portugal S.A., subsidiary of VINCI Airports and VINCI Group.
In detail, the project components to be implemented in the company's airport network, are:
i) ground power supply (GPS) to stationary aircraft in all 250 aircraft parking stands across the nine airports
ii) about 130 associated ground power unit (GPU) and pre-conditioned air equipment (PCA)
iii) about 600 electricity charging points for ground handling vehicles in the airside areas.
The investments will improve the airports operational resilience and infrastructure security, by providing fixed electrical ground power and pre-conditioned air to stationary aircraft, as well as zero direct emissions performance of the airport's own operations through electric charging points and electricity grid connection upgrades.
As stated on the companies' websites:
ANA is responsible for managing 10 airports in mainland Portugal (Lisbon, Oporto, Faro and Beja Civilian Terminal), in the Azores (Ponta Delgada, Horta, Santa Maria and Flores) and in Madeira (Madeira e Porto Santo).
VINCI designs, finances, builds and manages, within the framework of public-private partnerships, transport infrastructures and public equipment which contribute to the development of mobility and territories.

ACCOUNTABILITY MECHANISM OF EIB
The EIB Complaints Mechanism is designed to facilitate and handle complaints against the EIB by individuals, organizations or corporations affected by EIB activities. When exercising the right to lodge a complaint against the EIB, any member of the public has access to a two-tier procedure, one internal - the Complaints Mechanism Office - and one external - the European Ombudsman. A complaint can be lodged via a written communication addressed to the Secretary General of the EIB, via email to the dedicated email address: email@example.com, by completing the online complaint form available at the following address: http://www.eib.org/complaints/form via fax or delivered directly to the EIB Complaints Mechanism Division, any EIB local representation office or any EIB staff. For further details, check: http://www.eib.org/attachments/strategies/complaints_mechanism_policy_en.pdf
When dissatisfied with a complaint to the EIB Complaints Mechanism, citizens can then turn towards the European Ombudsman. A memorandum of Understanding has been signed between the EIB and the European Ombudsman establishes that citizens (even outside of the EU if the Ombudsman finds their complaint justified) can turn towards the Ombudsman on issues related to 'maladministration' by the EIB. Note that before going to the Ombudsman, an attempt must be made to resolve the case by contacting the EIB. In addition, the complaint must be made within two years of the date when the facts on which your complaint is based became known to you. You can write to the Ombudsman in any of the languages of the European Union.
