B2RLaw has advised UK-based construction equipment supplier CMT Group on the supply contract and the separate donation contract with the Polish Government Agency for Strategic Reserves for humanitarian aid to Ukraine in the form of power generators. The EUR 27 million contract was financed under the EU's Civil Protection Mechanism.
The CMT Group was founded in 2010 and offers a comprehensive range of construction equipment. It also operates globally with over ten locations worldwide and supplies a variety of industries.
The European Commission's Humanitarian Aid and Civil Protection Department provides relief in all major crisis zones around the world including Syria, South Sudan, Yemen, and Ukraine.
"As part of the EU Civil Protection & Humanitarian Aid grant and in cooperation with the Polish Government Agency for Strategic Reserves, we are proud to support Ukraine with energy assistance, including free-of-charge donations," the CMT Group announced. "Power generators are a vital resource in the current conflict, with many Ukrainians struggling without electricity, running water, and heat. Power generators are also essential to save lives in hospitals."
