EEA Grants

With the EEA and Norway grants, Iceland, Lichtenstein and Norway contribute toward the reduction of economic and social disparities and the strengthening of bilateral relations with beneficiary countries in Europe. Three countries cooperate closely with the EU under the European Economic Area Agreement (EEA Agreement).

In the years 2009-2014, the EEA and Norway grants amounted to EUR 1.79 billion. Norway provided about 97 percent of the total funding. The grants are available for non-governmental organisations, research institutes and institutions of higher education, and the public and private sector in the 12 new member states, as well as Greece, Portugal and Spain. Extensive cooperation with entities from donor states is taking place as part of the grants and undertakings can be implemented until 2016.

The most important areas to receive support are environment protection and climate changes, research and scholarships, civil society, health protection and children support, gender equality, justice and cultural heritage.

About the project

Hospital No. 2 changed out of all recognition
Half a year and almost PLN 10 million from the city budget and Norwegian funds was enough
With the support of the City Office in Mysłowice and Norwegian funds, the hospital has done comprehensive thermomodernization and acquired renewable energy sources. In addition, the City also funded the renovation of the internal diseases unit. The value of the entire project amounts to nearly PLN 10 million.

Hospital No. 2 in Mysłowice turns one hundred this year. A great part of the whole complex is historical, which explains the need for appropriate heating technologies to be applied. Also the interiors of the building which houses, among others, the hospital pharmacy, the reception and the internal diseases unit needed a thorough overhaul. Meritum Grupa Budowlana was the contractor selected by the Hospital under the tender procedure.

Two parts for the better whole

The entire project was divided into two interdependent parts. The first concerned the thermomodernization and renewable energy sources. The Hospital acquired money from Norwegian funds for this purpose. The second part is to focus on the renovation of building A.

Almost 80 per cent of funding from Norwegian Funds

The project “Improving the energy efficiency of facilities of the Independent Public Health Care Centre of Tadeusz Boczoń, M.D. Hospital No. 2 in Mysłowice through the thermomodernization and use of renewable energy sources” within the framework of the EEA Financial Mechanism for 2009-2014 for the operational program PL04 “Energy saving and promoting renewable energy sources” provides envisages insulation of walls and ceilings of the outermost buildings, exchange of external doors and windows, exchange of water central heating and hot water installations, installation of equipment to use solar energy and lighting installation. Its total value amounts to nearly PLN 4 million. The funding from Norwegian funds amounts to 76.6 percent (PLN 2.9 million). The remaining part, PLN 1.1 million, it tcomes from the municipal budget. Owing to this investment, savings on energy can be as high as PLN 400,000 per year.

The internal diseases unit to gain more

The second part of the renovation, which was entirely financed by Mysłowice city hall, includes the renovation of the building housing the internal diseases unit. It assumes redevelopment of the first and second floors just for the needs of the internal diseases unit, redevelopment of the premises of the hospital pharmacy and the laboratory, adapting them to the relevant requirements, and the entire facility – to the requirements of fire regulations. The whole investment is to cost nearly PLN 5.7 million.

“Hospital No. 2 is our municipal facility and our task is to make sure that its patients have the best possible conditions of stay during hospitalization. Therefore, repairs and upgrades of the hospital’s equipment are essential. More than year ago, we partly funded the purchase of equipment for the eye and trauma units, soon, thanks to the funding acquired by the Hospital, the internal diseases unit acquired more equipment, this time for cardiac diagnosis. We are happy that so much has already been done. I hope that the last investment, and we are talking about a really big financial outlay, will bring tangible benefits for both patients and the hospital” says Edward Lasok, Mayor of Mysłowice.

Hospital under renovation

Mariusz Wołosz, Director of Hospital No. 2 admits that such a large scope of work has only a small impact on the functioning of the hospital. We attempted to minimize it by proper arrangement of the work schedule The comfort of patients was not reduced by the use of tight bulkheads separating them from overhauled places and the designation of separate traffic routes for the overhaul and medical activities,” he assures.

The Dr Tadeusz Boczoń Hospital No. 2 in Mysłowice, Independent Public Healthcare Centre, received subsidies for the following projects implemented as part of the PL04 operational programme “Saving energy and promoting renewable energy sources” aimed to reduce greenhouse gases and pollutants emissions to the atmosphere, and to increase the share of renewable energy in overall energy consumption

Project title: “Increase the energy efficiency of buildings SP ZOZ Szpital nr 2 dr Tadeusza Boczonia in Mysłowice by partial thermal efficiency improvement and using renewable energy sources”
Why is it necessary to implement the project?
The energy efficiency of the existing buildings is low and the heating and electrical system show much wear.

What is the project’s objective?
The project’s objectives are:
– attainment of better energy efficiency of the buildings;
– increase in production of renewable energy.

What will be the effects of the project?
General project outcomes will be:
– reduction or avoidance of CO2 emissions: to 778.70 mg/year, i.e. by 64 percent;
– renewable energy production in the amount of 137.5 MWh/year.

Project results:
– provision of improved energy efficiency solutions for more public utility buildings: 2 buildings;
– more heat sources replaced/improved: 217 sources;
– more machines, equipment and systems using renewable energy: 146 items;

In addition, the project will be beneficial for the hospital personnel as it will facilitate provision of medical services by creating more comfortable conditions, and for the hospital managing authority due to the reduction in the operating costs of the buildings resulting from lower energy consumption.


The renovation of Hospital No. 2 in Mysłowice has completed

Over the last 12 months in Hospital No. 2 in Myslowice construction works have been carried out. A comprehensive renovation is one of the largest investments in the history of the hundred years old Hospital. The total cost of reconstruction was more than 9.7 million.

At the same time, the facility is implementing two projects – a project worth more than PLN 4 million to increase the energy efficiency and the use of renewable energy sources, financed in almost 80% by the EEA Financial Mechanism (the project with own contribution of the city budget called “Increase in energy efficiency of buildings of the Independent Public Complex of Health Care Facilities Dr. Tadeusz Boczoń Hospital No. 2 in Mysłowice by thermomodernization and use of renewable energy sources” in the framework of the EEA Financial Mechanism for the period of 2009-2014 for the operational programme PL04 “Energy saving and promotion of renewable energy sources”), and comprehensive renovation of the so-called internal medicine building, which is fully funded by the city of Mysłowice (the value of these works is PLN 5.7 million). In June building internal medicine was renovated. After comprehensive reconstruction of the historic building, the first and second floor were fully adapted to the needs of the internal ward. To the renovated building have returned the laboratory, the pharmacy and the hospital chapel. Moreover, patients are located in smaller rooms, which provide more intimacy, most of which are equipped with the bathroom. At the end of September a project to increase the energy efficiency and the use of renewable energy sources for the entire hospital was completed. It was worth more than 4 milion zloty. Renovation works included all hospital buildings as well as the Administration building.


Centenarian to get back in shape at the end of April

Hospital No. 2 in Mysłowice is undergoing one of the biggest overhauls in its history (if not the biggest one!). With the support of the City Hall in Mysłowice and funds of the Financial Mechanism of the European Economic Area (EEA), the hospital is going to celebrate its centenary with a completely new look, worth over PLN 9.7 million, already at the end of April.

Since September last year, Dr. Tadeusz Boczoń Hospital No. 2 in Mysłowice has been undergoing a comprehensive overhaul. At the same time, the facility is implementing two projects – a project worth approx. PLN 4 million to increase the energy efficiency and the use of renewable energy sources, financed in almost 80% by the EEA Financial Mechanism (the project with own contribution of the city budget called “Increase in energy efficiency of buildings of the Independent Public Complex of Health Care Facilities Dr. Tadeusz Boczoń Hospital No. 2 in Mysłowice by thermo-modernization and use of renewable energy sources” in the framework of the EEA Financial Mechanism for the period of 2009-2014 for the operational programme PL04 “Energy saving and promotion of renewable energy sources”), and comprehensive renovation of the so-called internal medicine building, which is fully funded by the city of Mysłowice (the value of these works is PLN 5.7 million).

More than half of the work in the hospital has already been done. – Currently, some installation and finishing work is performed. We also known the date of commissioning of the buildings after renovation — that is April this year, informs Mariusz Wołosz, Director of Hospital No. 2. We have also started work on the modernization of the administration building. We are starting with the exchange of central heating — adds the Director.
