. Waste
. Geology, soils and material assets
. Ecology
. Water resources
. Noise and vibration
. Socio- economic parameters
. Cultural Heritage
. Traffic and transport

The tasks that were successfully completed and the services that were provided were:

. Analysis of the current condition of the natural environment of the area (topography, geology, hydrology/hydrogeology, seismicity, soils, meteorology, flora and fauna)
. Analysis of the socioeconomic conditions of the area (population, economic activities, town planning, land use)
. Proposal and environmental evaluation of different alternative solutions to the project, mainly location wise
. Evaluation and assessment of the potential environmental impacts that can arise during the project’s construction and operation
. Formation and proposal of suitable mitigation measures to address the potential environmental impacts
. Elaboration of monitoring plan to be implemented during the construction and operation of the project
