The European Investment Bank (EIB) has signed a SEK 3.5 billion (EUR 325 million) loan agreement with the Region of Skane in Southern Sweden to finance the modernisation of the regional University Hospital in Malmö.
The hospital is currently providing its services from buildings from the sixties and seventies, which are no longer fit for purpose.
The project supported by the EIB involves the construction of two new buildings with a total surface area of 106,000 m2 and the rehabilitation of about 8,000 m2 within the existing campus of the Malmö University hospital.
With the implementation of the project the hospital expects to reduce the energy consumption of the overall campus by 17.200 MWh on a yearly basis.
The works are already underway and foreseen to be finished by June 2025.
