1.02 Disbursement Procedures
A. The Credit shall be disbursed, subject to the conditions of Paragraph 1.04, in up to 5 tranches (hereinafter called “Tranches” or, individually, a “Tranche”) which shall each be in an amount which is at least equivalent to EUR 4 million (four million euro), save for the last disbursement, and shall not exceed the equivalent of EUR 10 million (ten million euro).
B. Disbursement of each Tranche shall be subject to receipt by the Bank of a written request (a “Request”) from the Borrower, signed by a duly authorised officer, specifying:
(a) the amount of the Tranche in euro requested for disbursement under the Tranche;
(b) the currency in which the Borrower prefers the Tranche to be disbursed, being a currency referred to in Paragraph 1.03;
(c) whether the Tranche is to bear a fixed rate of interest (such a Tranche being referred to as “Fixed-Rate Tranche”) or a variable rate of interest (such a Tranche being referred to as “Variable-Rate Tranche”), provided, however, that disbursements under all Variable-Rate Tranches shall not be executed in more than three currencies in total;
(d) the interest rate, if any such rate was previously indicated by the Bank without commitment, as being applicable to the Tranche during its lifetime; and

No Request may be made later than 15 September 2006. Subject to the proviso to Sub-paragraph 1.02C, each Request is irrevocable.
C. Between 10 and 15 days before the date of disbursement the Bank shall, if the Request conforms to Paragraph 1.02A and B, and subject to Paragraph 1.04 and 1.07, deliver to the Borrower a notice (hereinafter a “Disbursement Notice”) which shall:

D.

For the calculation of the sums to be disbursed in currencies other than euro, the Bank shall apply the reference exchange rates computed and published by the European Central Bank in Frankfurt, or failing which the exchange rates prevailing on any other financial market chosen by the Bank, on such day within fifteen days before the date of disbursement as the Bank shall decide.

(f) the Bank shall have received confirmation from the Borrower that the relevant authorities have delivered appropriate and necessary final planning and environmental approvals for the Project;
If a Request for the disbursement of the first Tranche is made before receipt by the Bank of evidence satisfactory to it, that such conditions have been fulfilled, such Request shall be deemed to have been received by the Bank on the date the conditions shall have been completed.
B. Disbursement of each subsequent Tranche shall be further subject to the Bank’s receipt, before the date of the relevant Request, of (i) confirmation from the Borrower that all environmental approvals for the Project are still valid and that no change in the environmental situation has occurred in relation to the report issued by the Initial EU-Consultant and (ii) documentary evidence satisfactory to it that the Borrower has expended or will expend, within six months from the date of the Request, on those components of the Project to be part-financed by the Bank as set out in Schedule A hereto, an amount at least equal to the amount of the disbursement requested hereunder.

(iii) Each amount so calculated shall be discounted to the Prepayment Date by applying a discount rate equal to the rate determined pursuant to Indent (y) of Indent (ii).

If by 5 p.m. Luxembourg time on the date of the notification the Borrower fails to confirm its intention to effect the prepayment on the terms notified by the Bank, the Prepayment Notice shall be of no effect.

4.03 Compulsory Prepayment
A. If the Borrower voluntarily prepays a part or the whole of any other loan originally contracted for a term of more than five years, the Bank may demand prepayment of such proportion of the amount of the Loan then outstanding as the prepaid sum bears to the aggregate outstanding amount of all such loans.
The Bank shall address its demand, if any, to the Borrower within four weeks of receipt of the relevant notice under Paragraph 8.02(a). Any sum demanded by the Bank shall be paid, together with accrued interest, on the date indicated by the Bank, which date shall not precede the date of prepayment of the other loan.
Prepayment of a loan by means of a new loan having a term at least as long as the unexpired term of the loan prepaid shall not be considered to be a prepayment.
B. If the total cost of the Project should fall significantly short of the figure stated in the Recitals, the Bank may in proportion to the shortfall demand prepayment of the Loan.
C. In case of any prepayment due under this Paragraph 4.03 the Borrower may select which Tranche or Tranches are to be prepaid.
4.04 General Provisions regarding Prepayment under Article 4

                              SLOVENIA – ZIROVSKI VRH PROJECT
     
The project consists of engineering, design, implementation, supervision and
follow-up of the decommissioning measures undertaken by RZV in order to
decrease and minimise existing radiation levels and geotechnical risks. It
comprises the following components:

1.  Project preparation, which has to a large extent already been carried out.
2.  Remediation measures carried out from 1994 until 2000 including
    dismantling of the mill premises.

3.  Partial backfilling of the underground mine where appropriate to prevent
    pillar instability and potential collapse of underground voids. Stabilisation of
    the underground mine will prevent excessive long-term contamination of the
    mine effluent, which has to satisfy (after mixing with the other contaminators
    and the natural uncontaminated flow), the strict upper limits for drinking
    water. Additionally, several strong contaminated underground water sources
    will be sealed. The mine has furthermore to be sealed airtight in order to
    prevent further radon exhalation.
4.  Resloping of the Jazbec mine waste stockpile and reworking of its drainage
    system in order to achieve long term geotechnical stability. In addition, the
    site has to be covered with a multilayer barrier to minimise radon exhalation,
    gamma radiation and, at the same time, prevent rainwater intake. Stockpile
    drainage water and water contamination should gradually decrease to levels
    below the authorised limits.

5.  Resloping and partial relocation of the Borst tailings disposal site and
    possibly reworking of its drainage system in order to achieve long term
    geotechnical stability. In addition, the site has to be covered with a multilayer
    barrier to minimise radon exhalation and gamma radiation and, at the same
    time, prevent rainwater intake. As in the case of the mine waste stockpile,
    drainage water from the depositioning site and water contamination should
    gradually decrease to levels below the authorised limits.
6.  Project management, internal and external supervision and long-term
    follow-up of the implementation measures.
     
  EIB financing is towards awarded contracts covering the components under 3,
4 and 5 above.
  Preparation of the decommissioning measures started in late 1990, site works
started in 1994. Completion of the remediation measures is foreseen for end of 2005,
followed by a 5 years’ short-term monitoring period.

JE s tem dogovorjeno naslednje:
1. člen
Izplačilo
1.01 Znesek kredita
S to pogodbo banka daje v korist posojilojemalke in posojilojemalka sprejema kredit (v nadaljevanju “kredit”) v znesku v protivrednosti 20,000.000 EUR (dvajset milijonov evrov) za izključni namen delnega financiranja določenih sestavin projekta, kot je navedeno v Prilogi A.
1.02 Postopki izplačila
A. Kredit se izplača v skladu s pogoji iz odstavka 1.04 v največ 5 tranšah (v nadaljevanju “tranše” ali posamezno “tranša”), pri čemer je znesek vsake tranše enak najmanj 4 milijonom EUR (štiri milijone evrov) razen zadnjega izplačila in ne sme preseči protivrednosti 10 milijonov EUR (deset milijonov evrov).
B. Za izplačilo vsake tranše mora banka od posojilojemalke prejeti pisno zaprosilo (“zaprosilo”), ki ga je podpisal pravilno pooblaščen uslužbenec, v katerem se navedejo:
(a) znesek tranše v evrih, za katerega izplačilo se prosi po tej tranši;
(b) valuta, v kateri želi posojilojemalka, da se tranša izplača, pri čemer je to valuta, omenjena v odstavku 1.03;
(c) ali bo tranša obrestovana s stalno obrestno mero (pri čemer se taka tranša imenuje “tranša s stalno obrestno mero”) ali spremenljivo obrestno mero (pri čemer se taka tranša imenuje “tranša s spremenljivo obrestno mero”), vendar pa pod pogojem, da se izplačila po vseh tranšah s spremenljivo obrestno mero ne smejo opraviti skupno v več kot treh valutah;
(d) obrestna mera, če je takšno obrestno mero banka predhodno navedla neobvezno kot obrestno mero, ki bi se uporabljala za tranšo med njenim trajanjem, in
(e) želeni datum izplačila, pri čemer se razume, da lahko banka izplača vsako tranšo v največ štirih koledarskih mesecih od datuma posameznega zaprosila.
Po 15. septembru 2006 se ne sme več predložiti nobeno zaprosilo. Ob upoštevanju pridržka k pododstavku 1.02 C je vsako zaprosilo nepreklicno.
C. Od 10 do 15 dni pred datumom izplačila banka, če je zaprosilo v skladu z odstavkom 1.02 A in B, in ob upoštevanju odstavkov 1.04 in 1.07 pošlje posojilojemalki obvestilo (v nadaljevanju “obvestilo o izplačilu”), ki
(a) potrjuje znesek in valuto izplačila po tranši, kot je navedeno v zaprosilu;
(b) navaja obrestno mero, določeno na podlagi pododstavka 3.01 A oziroma med prvim referenčnim obdobjem na podlagi pododstavka 3.01 B, in
(c) navaja datum izplačila tranše.
Če obrestna mera, navedena v obvestilu o izplačilu, presega ustrezno obrestno mero, ki jo je predhodno navedla banka in je navedena v zaprosilu, ali če kateri koli drug element, naveden v obvestilu o izplačilu, ni v skladu z zaprosilom, lahko posojilojemalka v treh dneh, ko je banka v Luxembourgu odprta, po prejemu obvestila o izplačilu zaprosilo prekliče z obvestilom banki in nato zaprosilo in obvestilo o izplačilu nimata več nobenega učinka.
D. Izplačilo katere koli tranše se izvede na tisti bančni račun na ime posojilojemalke, ki ga posojilojemalka navede v obvestilu banki, ki ga je podpisal pravilno pooblaščen uslužbenec posojilojemalke, najpozneje osem dni pred datumom izplačila pod pogojem, da se sme za vsako tranšo navesti največ en račun.
1.03 Valuta izplačila
V odvisnosti od razpoložljivosti banka izplača vsako tranšo v valuti, ki jo je posojilojemalka izbrala kot želeno valuto. Valuta izplačila je evro, valuta ene od držav članic banke, ki ne sodelujejo v tretji fazi EMU, ali katera koli druga valuta, s katero se v večjem obsegu trguje na vodilnih mednarodnih finančnih trgih.
Za izračun zneskov, ki se izplačajo v drugih valutah in ne evrih, uporabi banka referenčne menjalne tečaje, ki jih izračunava in objavlja Evropska centralna banka v Frankfurtu, sicer pa menjalne tečaje, ki veljajo na katerem koli drugem finančnem trgu po izboru banke na dan v obdobju petnajstih dni pred datumom izplačila, kot se odloči banka.
1.04 Pogoji izplačila
A. Za izplačilo prve tranše na podlagi odstavka 1.02 se zahteva izpolnjevanje naslednjih pogojev, sprejemljivih za banko, in sicer da pred datumom zaprosila:
(a) državni pravobranilec posojilojemalke izda ugodno pravno mnenje v angleškem jeziku pretežno v obliki, ki je priložena tej pogodbi kot Dodatek II, o tem, da je posojilojemalka pravilno podpisala to pogodbo in da je ustrezna dokumentacija sprejemljiva za banko;
(b) banka prejme angleški prevod zakona o ratifikaciji, ki ga je sprejel parlament Republike Slovenije, s katerim se posojilojemalki dovoljuje sklenitev te pogodbe;
(c) so bila pridobljena vsa morebitna potrebna devizna soglasja, ki posojilojemalki dovoljujejo, da prejme izplačila po tej pogodbi za odplačilo posojila in za plačilo obresti in vseh drugih zneskov, dolgovanih po tej pogodbi; takšna soglasja morajo obsegati odprtje in vzdrževanje računa, na katerega bo po navodilih posojilojemalke banka izplačala kredit;
(d) posojilojemalka ukrene vse potrebno za zagotovitev, da se obresti in vsa druga plačila, dolgovana banki po tej pogodbi, izvedejo brez odbitka ali zadržanja kakršnega koli davka, dajatev ali drugih davščin katere koli vrste, ki jih je treba po zakonu plačati v Republiki Sloveniji;
(e) posojilojemalka banki predloži dokaze o pooblastilih osebe ali oseb, ki so pooblaščene za podpis zaprosil, in overjen deponiran podpis te osebe ali oseb in
(f) banka prejme od posojilojemalke potrditev, da so ustrezni organi izdali ustrezna in potrebna dovoljenja za končni projekt in okoljska dovoljenja za projekt.
Če je zaprosilo za izplačilo prve tranše dano, preden je banka prejela dokaz, ki je zanjo sprejemljiv, da so ti pogoji izpolnjeni, se šteje, da je banka tako zaprosilo prejela na datum izpolnitve pogojev.
B. Za izplačilo vsake nadaljnje tranše se nadalje zahteva, da banka prejme pred datumom ustreznega zaprosila (i) od posojilojemalke potrditev, da vsa okoljska dovoljenja za projekt še vedno veljajo in da ni prišlo do nikakršne spremembe v okoljskih razmerah glede na poročilo, ki ga je izdal prvotni svetovalec EU, in (ii) za banko sprejemljiva dokazila, da je ali da bo posojilojemalka v šestih mesecih od datuma zaprosila porabila za tiste sestavine projekta, ki jih delno financira banka, kot je podrobno opisano v Prilogi A k tej pogodbi, znesek, ki je najmanj enak znesku izplačila, za katerega se prosi po tej pogodbi. Banka bo opravila izplačilo do višine 100% takih izdatkov (neto brez davkov in uvoznih dajatev) v okviru celotnega kredita.

Za katero koli izplačilo tranše, s katerim se vnaprej financirajo izdatki, se zahteva, da banka v šestih mesecih prejme dokaz, ki je zanjo sprejemljiv, da je bil vsak znesek, izplačan po ustrezni tranši, pravilno porabljen pri projektu.
Za vsako izplačilo tranše se zahteva, da je banka prepričana, da so še vedno posojilojemalki na voljo zadostna druga finančna sredstva, tako da sta zagotovljena pravočasno dokončanje in izvedba projekta v skladu s tehničnim opisom.
Za izplačilo zadnje tranše se razen tega zahteva, da posojilojemalka določi za banko sprejemljivo institucijo, ki bo pristojna za spremljanje stanja in vzdrževanje lokacije projekta po dokončanju projekta.
Če kateri koli del dokazov, ki jih je predložila posojilojemalka, ni sprejemljiv za banko, lahko banka izplača znesek, ki je sorazmerno nižji od zaprošenega.
C. Za izračun protivrednosti zneskov v evrih, porabljenih na podlagi tega odstavka 1.04, uporabi banka menjalni tečaj, omenjen v odstavku 1.03.
1.05 Provizija za odlog izplačila
Če se izplačilo katere koli tranše odloži na zaprosilo posojilojemalke (s soglasjem banke), plača posojilojemalka na neizplačani delež tranše provizijo za odlog izplačila po stopnji 1% na leto, izračunano od prvotno določenega datuma izplačila do dejanskega datuma izplačila, oziroma če tranša ni (v celoti) izplačana, do datuma razveljavitve ali preklica te tranše. Banka mora prejeti zaprosilo za odlog izplačila vsaj osem dni pred prvotnim datumom izplačila. Takšna provizija teče od dneva do dneva in zapade v plačilo na vsak datum, naveden v odstavku 5.03.
1.06 Razveljavitev kredita
Če bi bili stroški projekta nižji od zneska, navedenega v uvodnih navedbah, lahko banka z obvestilom posojilojemalki razveljavi kredit v sorazmerju z razliko v zneskih.
Posojilojemalka lahko kadar koli z obvestilom banki v celoti ali deloma razveljavi kateri koli neizplačani delež kredita.
Če posojilojemalka razveljavi katero koli tranšo, za katero ustrezno zaprosilo posojilojemalke ni bilo preklicano v skladu s pridržkom iz pododstavka 1.02 C, plača provizijo, izračunano od razveljavljenega zneska po pavšalni stopnji, enaki polovični obrestni meri, navedeni v ustreznem obvestilu o izplačilu. Takšna provizija se plača dodatno h kateri koli proviziji, ki se plača po odstavku 1.05.
Banka lahko kadar koli po 15. septembru 2006 z obvestilom posojilojemalki v celoti ali deloma razveljavi kateri koli neizplačani delež kredita, ki zatem ni več predmet zaprosila.
1.07 Preklic in odlog kredita
Banka lahko z obvestilom posojilojemalki prekliče neizplačani delež kredita kadar koli in s takojšnim učinkom:
(a) ob kakršnem koli dogodku, omenjenem v pododstavku 10.01 (A) ali (B), ali
(b) ob izrednih okoliščinah, ki neugodno vplivajo na dostop banke na nacionalni in mednarodni trg kapitala.
Druga možnost je, da lahko banka, če meni, da je prišlo do okoliščin, opisanih pod (a) ali (b), in so te začasne, z obvestilom posojilojemalki odloži črpanje neizplačanega deleža kredita. V takem primeru se odlog izplačila nadaljuje, dokler po izdaji naslednjega zaprosila banka znova ne izda obvestila o izplačilu.
Vendar pa banka nima pravice, da v primeru pod (b) prekliče ali odloži katero koli tranšo, ki je predmet obvestila o izplačilu.
Šteje se, da je kredit preklican, če banka zahteva odplačilo po 10. členu.
Če je kredit preklican zaradi drugih okoliščin, ki niso okoliščine, omenjene pod primerom (b) zgoraj, plača posojilojemalka provizijo na preklicani znesek po letni stopnji 0,75%, izračunano od datuma zaprosila do datuma preklica.
Takšna provizija se plača dodatno h kateri koli proviziji, ki se plača po odstavku 1.05.
1.08 Valuta provizij
Provizije, ki jih posojilojemalka plača banki po tem 1. členu, se izračunajo in plačajo v evrih.
2. člen
Posojilo
2.01 Znesek posojila
Posojilo (v nadaljevanju “posojilo”) obsega skupni seštevek zneskov v valutah, ki jih izplača banka, v skladu z obvestili banke ob izplačilu vsake tranše.
2.02 Valuta odplačil
Vsako odplačilo tranše po 4. členu oziroma 10. členu se izvede v valuti, v kateri je bilo izvedeno izplačilo po tej tranši.
2.03 Valuta obresti in drugih stroškov
Obresti in drugi stroški, ki se plačajo na posamezno tranšo ali v zvezi z njo po 3., 4., oziroma kadar ustreza, po 10. členu, se izračunajo in plačajo v valuti, v kateri se ta tranša odplača.
Vsako drugo plačilo se izvede v valuti, ki jo je določila banka, ob upoštevanju valute izdatkov, ki se s tem plačilom povrnejo.
2.04 Obvestilo banke
Po izplačilu vsake tranše banka pošlje posojilojemalki povzetje, ki prikazuje znesek, valuto, datum izplačila, načrt odplačevanja in obrestno mero za to tranšo.
3. člen
Obresti
3.01 Obrestna mera
A. Neodplačana razlika katere koli tranše s stalno obrestno mero se obrestuje po obrestni meri, navedeni v obvestilu o izplačilu, ki se nanaša nanjo, pri čemer je ta obrestna mera obrestna mera, ki velja na datum izdaje obvestila o izplačilu za posojila, izražena v ustrezni valuti in ki jih je banka odobrila svojim posojilojemalcem po enakih pogojih odplačevanja in po enakih pogojih za plačilo obresti, kot veljajo za to tranšo.
Obresti na katero koli tranšo s stalno obrestno mero se plačajo polletno za nazaj na datume, navedene v odstavku 5.03 za tranše s stalno obrestno mero, z začetkom na prvi tak datum po datumu izplačila te tranše.
B. Obrestna mera, ki se uporablja za neodplačani znesek po kateri koli tranši s spremenljivo obrestno mero, je obrestna mera, ki velja za vsakokratno referenčno obdobje na podlagi naslednjih opredelitev.
Za namene te pogodbe:
(a) “obrestna mera”:
(i) je obrestna mera, ki jo določi banka za vsako zaporedno referenčno obdobje v skladu s postopki, ki jih vsakokrat določi njen upravni odbor za posojila, ki jih je banka odobrila po spremenljivih obrestnih merah in se financirajo iz ustreznih sredstev, vendar pod pogojem, da ne preseže za več kot 0,25% (25 bazičnih točk) trimesečne obrestne mere, ponujene na glavnem medbančnem trgu ustrezne valute (za ameriški dolar na londonskem medbančnem trgu in za evro na medbančnem trgu območja evra), ki jo je izbrala banka;
(ii) je pavšalna medbančna obrestna mera, če datum izplačila tranše s spremenljivo obrestno mero ni datum začetka referenčnega obdobja, in za trajanje samo prvega obrestnega obdobja in
(iii) je tista, o kateri banka obvesti posojilojemalko v desetih dneh po datumu začetka referenčnega obdobja, za katero se uporablja;
(b) “medbančna obrestna mera” pomeni:
(i) za katero koli obrestno obdobje enega meseca ali več obrestno mero za medbančne depozite v obdobju, ki je enako številu celih mesecev, ki ustrezajo trajanju takega obrestnega obdobja, in
(ii) za katero koli obrestno obdobje manj od enega meseca obrestno mero za medbančne depozite za obdobje enega meseca,
ponujeno na glavnem medbančnem trgu ustrezne valute (za ameriški dolar na londonskem medbančnem trgu in za evro na medbančnem trgu območja evra), ki jo je izbrala banka;
(c) “referenčno obdobje” pomeni obdobje treh mesecev, ki se začne 15. marca, 15. junija, 15. septembra ali 15. decembra katerega koli leta, razen prvega referenčnega obdobja, ki se začne na datum izplačila posamezne tranše, in
(d) “ustrezna sredstva” pomenijo izposojena in druga sredstva, izražena v valutah, omenjenih v odstavku 1.03, in najeta na takšnih trgih, kot jih lahko banka vsakokrat izbere za namene financiranja posojil, ki jih je dala v teh valutah in po spremenljivih obrestnih merah.
Obresti na katero koli tranšo s spremenljivo obrestno mero se plačajo četrtletno za nazaj na datume, navedene v odstavku 5.03 za tranše s spremenljivo obrestno mero, z začetkom na prvi tak datum po datumu izplačila te tranše.
3.02 Zamudne obresti
Ne da bi to vplivalo na 10. člen in na podlagi izjeme iz odstavka 3.01, tečejo obresti od dneva do dneva na kateri koli zapadli neplačani znesek, ki se plača po pogojih te pogodbe v kateri koli valuti, od datuma njegove zapadlosti do datuma njegovega plačila po obrestni meri, ki je enaka višji od:
(a) vsote: (i) 0,25% (25 bazičnih točk) in ii) obrestne mere, ki se vsakokrat uporabi po odstavku 3.01 za tranšo, s katero je takšen zapadli neplačani znesek povezan, in
(b) vsote: (i) obrestne mere za medbančne depozite za obdobje enega meseca, ponujene na glavnem medbančnem trgu ustrezne valute (za ameriški dolar na londonskem medbančnem trgu in za evro na medbančnem trgu območja evra), ki jo je izbrala banka, in (ii) 2% (200 bazičnih točk) na leto. Za namene te alineje (b) so referenčna obrestna obdobja sestavljena iz zaporednih obdobij po en mesec, začnejo se z datumom zapadlosti neplačanega zneska.
Takšne obresti se plačajo v isti valuti kot zamujeni neplačani znesek, na katerega se obračunavajo.
4. člen
Odplačevanje
4.01 Običajno odplačevanje
Posojilojemalka odplačuje posojilo v skladu s preglednico o odplačevanju posojila v Prilogi B.
4.02 Prostovoljno predčasno odplačilo
A. Tranše s stalno obrestno mero
(i) Posojilojemalka lahko predčasno odplača celotno ali del katere koli tranše s stalno obrestno mero po svojem pisnem obvestilu (v nadaljevanju “obvestilo o predčasnem odplačilu”), v katerem navede znesek (“znesek predčasnega odplačila”), ki bo predčasno odplačan, in predlagani datum predčasnega odplačila (“datum predčasnega odplačila”), ki je datum, naveden v odstavku 5.03 (vsak “datum plačila”). Obvestilo o predčasnem odplačilu mora biti banki poslano vsaj en mesec pred datumom predčasnega odplačila. Pogoj za morebitno predčasno odplačilo je, da posojilojemalka plača nadomestilo, ki se banki plača v skladu z določbami alinej (ii) in (iii) v nadaljevanju.
(ii) Znesek nadomestila, ki se plača za tranšo, je znesek primanjkljaja v obrestih, ki banki nastane za vsako polletje v obdobju med predčasnim odplačilom in datumi plačila, izračunan na način, naveden v naslednjem pododstavku, in diskontiran v skladu z alinejo (iii).
Znesek primanjkljaja se izračuna kot znesek, za katerega
(x) obresti, ki bi jih bilo treba plačati med tem polletjem na predčasno odplačani del tranše,
presegajo
(y) obresti, ki bi jih bilo treba plačati med tem polletjem, če bi se izračunale po referenčni obrestni meri; v ta namen pomeni “referenčna obrestna mera” obrestno mero (zmanjšano za 15 (petnajst) bazičnih točk), ki jo banka določi na datum, ki nastopi en mesec pred datumom predčasnega odplačila, kot standardno obrestno mero za posojilo, ki ga je banka ponudila v ustrezni valuti, ki ima enake finančne značilnosti kot to posojilo, zlasti enako periodičnost za plačilo obresti, enako preostalo dobo do zapadlosti in enak način odplačevanja.
(iii) Vsak tako izračunan znesek se diskontira na datum predčasnega odplačila z uporabo diskontne stopnje, ki je enaka stopnji, določeni na podlagi alineje (y) alineje (ii).
(iv) Banka obvesti posojilojemalko o dolgovanem nadomestilu oziroma o neobstoju nadomestila. Če do 5. ure popoldne po luksemburškem času na datum obvestila posojilojemalka ne potrdi svojega namena, da bo izvedla predčasno odplačilo po pogojih, o katerih jo je banka obvestila, obvestilo o predčasnem odplačilu nima nobenega učinka. Razen prej omenjenega mora posojilojemalka izvesti plačilo v skladu z obvestilom o predčasnem odplačilu skupaj z natečenimi obrestmi na znesek predčasnega odplačila in plačati kateri koli znesek, dolgovan po tem pododstavku 4.02 A.
B. Tranše s spremenljivo obrestno mero
Posojilojemalka lahko predčasno odplača katero koli tranšo s spremenljivo obrestno mero skupaj z natečenimi obrestmi na datum izteka katerega koli referenčnega obdobja. Predčasno odplačilo se lahko izvede brez pogodbene kazni in pod pogojem, da je banka o tem obveščena trideset dni pred tem. Obvestilo je nepreklicno.
4.03 Obvezno predčasno odplačilo
A. Če posojilojemalka prostovoljno predčasno odplača del ali celoto katerega koli drugega posojila, ki je bilo prvotno dano za obdobje več kot pet let, lahko banka zahteva predčasno odplačilo takšnega deleža zneska tedaj še neodplačanega posojila, kot predčasno plačani znesek pomeni v skupnem neodplačanem znesku vseh takšnih posojil.
Banka naslovi svoj morebitni zahtevek na posojilojemalko v štirih tednih od prejema ustreznega obvestila po odstavku 8.02 (a). Vsak znesek, ki ga zahteva banka, se plača skupaj z natečenimi obrestmi na datum, ki ga banka navede, pri čemer ta datum ne sme biti pred datumom predčasnega odplačila drugega posojila.
Predčasno odplačilo posojila s pomočjo novega posojila, ki ima rok, ki je vsaj tako dolg kot nepotekli rok predčasno odplačanega posojila, se ne šteje za predčasno odplačilo.
B. Če bi bila skupna vrednost projekta bistveno nižja od zneska, navedenega v uvodnih navedbah, lahko banka v sorazmerju z razliko v ceni zahteva predčasno odplačilo posojila.
C. Pri kakršnem koli predčasnem odplačilu, dolgovanem po tem odstavku 4.03, lahko posojilojemalka izbere, katero tranšo ali tranše bo predčasno odplačala.
4.04 Splošne določbe glede predčasnega odplačila posojila po 4. členu
Pri delnem predčasnem odplačilu tranše se vsak predčasno odplačan znesek uporabi pro rata za znižanje vsakega neodplačanega obroka.
Ta 4. člen ne vpliva na 10. člen.
5. člen
Plačila
5.01 Kraj plačila
Vsak znesek, ki ga plača posojilojemalka po tej pogodbi, se plača na ustrezen račun, ki ga banka sporoči posojilojemalki. Banka navede račun najmanj petnajst dni pred datumom zapadlosti prvega plačila posojilojemalke in jo obvesti o kakršni koli spremembi računa najmanj petnajst dni pred datumom prvega plačila, na katero se sprememba nanaša.
Ta obvestilni rok ne velja pri plačilu po 10. členu.
5.02 Izračun plačil, ki se nanašajo na del leta
Kateri koli znesek, ki ga mora plačati posojilojemalka po tej pogodbi, kot so obresti, provizija ali drugo, in izračunan za kateri koli del leta se izračuna na podlagi leta iz tristošestdesetih dni in
(a) za tranše s stalno obrestno mero na podlagi meseca iz tridesetih dni ali
(b) za tranše s spremenljivo obrestno mero na podlagi števila poteklih dni.
5.03 Datumi plačila
Za tranše s spremenljivo obrestno mero se zneski, ki zapadejo po tej pogodbi v plačilo vsakega četrt leta, plačajo banki 15. marca, 15. junija, 15. septembra in 15. decembra vsakega leta; zneski, ki zapadejo v plačilo vsakega pol leta, pa se banki plačajo 15. marca in 15. septembra vsakega leta.
Zneski, ki zapadejo v plačilo vsakega pol leta po tej pogodbi za tranše s stalno obrestno mero, se plačajo banki 15. marca in 15. septembra vsakega leta.
Katero koli plačilo, ki zapade v plačilo na dan, ki ni delovni dan, se plača prvi naslednji dan, ki je delovni dan. “Delovni dan” pomeni dan, ko so banke odprte za poslovanje v finančnem središču države, katere nacionalna valuta je valuta zapadlega zneska, pod pogojem, da pri evru delovni dan pomeni dan izvedbe naloga za plačilo ali prenakazilo v evrih prek evro sistema poravnav, imenovanega Transevropski avtomatski ekspresni sistem bruto poravnav v realnem času (TARGET).
Drugi zneski, ki zapadejo v plačilo po tej pogodbi, se plačajo v sedmih dneh po tem, ko je posojilojemalka prejela zahtevo banke za plačilo.
Znesek, ki ga dolguje posojilojemalka, se šteje za plačanega, ko ga banka prejme.
6. člen
Posebne obveznosti
6.01 Uporaba posojila in drugih finančnih virov
Posojilojemalka uporabi sredstva posojila in druge finančne vire, omenjene v finančnem načrtu, ki je opisan v uvodnih navedbah, izključno za izvedbo sklenjenih pogodb, ki se nanašajo na sestavine pod 3, 4 in 5 v zvezi s projektom, kot je opisano v Prilogi A.

Posojilojemalka se obvezuje, da bo projekt izvedla v skladu s tehničnim opisom in ga dokončala do roka, določenega v tehničnem opisu, v skladu s standardi Evropske unije, ki se nanašajo na varstvo okolja in varstvo pred sevanjem, kot so lahko dopolnjeni ali spremenjeni.
6.03 Povečani stroški projekta
Če stroški projekta presežejo ocenjeni znesek, naveden v uvodnih navedbah, pridobi posojilojemalka finančna sredstva za financiranje povečanih stroškov, ne da bi se v ta namen obrnila na banko, da bi posojilojemalki omogočila dokončanje projekta v skladu s tehničnim opisom. Načrti posojilojemalke za financiranje povečanih stroškov se nemudoma sporočijo banki.
6.04 Razpisni postopek
Posojilojemalka se zavezuje, da bo nakupila blago, zagotovila storitve in naročila dela za projekt, če je primerno in sprejemljivo za banko, prek mednarodnega javnega razpisa, na katerega se lahko prijavijo državljani vseh držav pod enakimi pogoji.

Banka lahko odkloni soglasje, samo če bi predlagano ravnanje škodovalo interesom banke kot posojilodajalke posojilojemalki oziroma bi privedlo do tega, da projekt ne bi več izpolnjeval pogojev banke za financiranje.
6.08 Revizija računovodskih evidenc
Posojilojemalka se zavezuje, da bo vzdrževala za banko sprejemljivo finančno in računovodsko evidenco ter dokumentacijo.

6.10 Okoljske zaveze
Tako dolgo, dokler posojilo ni odplačano, posojilojemalka izvaja:
(a) svoje dejavnosti v skladu s svojimi podzakonskimi akti in drugimi predpisi o varstvu okolja, ki se lahko uporabljajo za dejavnost posojilojemalke, in standardi Evropske unije o varstvu okolja in zaščiti pred sevanjem, kot so lahko dopolnjeni ali spremenjeni, ter zagotovi in ohranja vsa potrebna vladna dovoljenja, ki se na to nanašajo, ter
(b) vsa vzdrževalna in sanacijska dela kot tudi usmeritve, ki blažijo vpliv na okolje in vpliv sevanja in so lahko potrebne za projekt v skladu z dobro prakso in zakoni iz točke a) tega odstavka 6.10, ter izvede vsa vzdrževalna in sanacijska dela na projektnih objektih, ki jih lahko zahtevajo pristojni organi po omenjenih zakonih.

Če tretja stran proti banki vloži kakršen koli zahtevek na podlagi okoliščin, ki izhajajo iz izvedbe projekta ali ki nastanejo v zvezi z njim, banka o tem takoj obvesti posojilojemalko. Po posvetovanju s posojilojemalko o takem zahtevku ter o njegovih dejanskih in pravnih okoliščinah se lahko banka po svoji izključni prosti presoji odloči o ukrepih, ki jih bo sprejela za zaščito svojih interesov. Posojilojemalka se brezpogojno zavezuje, da bo banki povsem povrnila škodo za vse obveznosti, ki za banko nastanejo iz takega zahtevka tretje strani, vključno, vendar ne omejeno na odškodnino, sodbe, izvršbe in zahtevke.
Poleg tega se posojilojemalka zavezuje, da bo podprla stališče banke v vsakem takem primeru z vsemi razumnimi sredstvi, ki se lahko izkažejo za potrebna, vključno s pridružitvijo banki v katerem koli sodnem ali arbitražnem postopku.

7.01 Dodatno jamstvo
Če posojilojemalka tretji strani da kakršno koli jamstveno pravico nad katerimi koli svojimi sredstvi za poplačilo katere koli zunanje obveznosti ali katero koli posebno pravico ali prednostno pravico v zvezi s tem, zagotovi banki, če ta tako zahteva, enakovredno jamstveno pravico za izpolnitev svojih obveznosti po tej pogodbi ali da banki enakovredno posebno pravico ali prednostno pravico. Posojilojemalka izjavlja, da trenutno ne obstaja nikakršna takšna jamstvena, posebna ali prednostna pravica.

                                                              Priloga A

                              Tehnični opis
                      SLOVENIJA – PROJEKT ŽIROVSKI VRH

   Projekt sestavljajo inženiring, projektiranje, izvedba, nadzor in
spremljanje rezultatov ukrepov za varno in trajno zaprtje, ki jih izvaja
RUŽV, da bi zmanjšal in na najmanjšo mero znižal obstoječe ravni sevanja
in geotehnična tveganja. Obsega te sestavine:
1.  pripravo projekta, ki je bila v veliki meri že opravljena;
2.  ukrepe za odpravo pomanjkljivosti, ki so se izvajali od leta 1994
    do 2000, vključno z demontažo objekta za predelavo rude;
3.  delno zasutje jame, kjer je to primerno, da se preprečita
    nestabilnost varnostnih stebrov in možna porušitev podzemnih
    prostorov.Stabilizacija podzemnih prostorov bo preprečila
    čezmerno dolgoročno
    onesnaženje odpadne vode iz rudnika, ki mora (po mešanju z
    drugimi onesnaževali in naravnim neonesnaženim tokom) zadostiti
    strogim zgornjim mejnim vrednostim za pitno vodo. Poleg tega bo
    zatesnjenih več močno
    onesnaženih podzemnih vodnih virov. Rudnik je treba poleg tega
    nepredušno
    zapreti, da se prepreči nadaljnje izhajanje radona;
4.  oblikovanje in utrjevanje površin odlagališča jamske jalovine na
    Jazbecu in preureditev njegovega sistema odvajanja vode, da se
    doseže dolgoročna geotehnična stabilnost. Poleg tega je treba
    odlagališče pokriti z večslojno zaporo, da se na najmanjšo mero
    zmanjšata izhajanje radona in sevanje gama ter hkrati prepreči
    pronicanje meteorne vode. Odvedena voda z odlagališča jamske
    jalovine in onesnaženje vode se morata postopoma zmanjšati na
    raven pod dovoljenimi mejnimi vrednostmi;
5.  oblikovanje in utrjevanje površin odlagališča ter delno
    preselitev odlagališča hidrometalurške jalovine na Borštu in po
    možnosti preureditev njegovega sistema odvodnjavanja, da se
    doseže dolgoročna  geotehnična stabilnost. Poleg tega je treba
    odlagališče pokriti z večslojno zaporo, da se na najmanjšo mero
    zmanjšata izhajanje radona in sevanje gama ter hkrati prepreči
    pronicanje meteorne vode. Enako kot pri odlagališču jamske
    jalovine se morata tudi odvedena voda z  odlagališča in
    onesnaženje vode postopoma zmanjšati na raven pod dovoljenimi
    mejnimi vrednostmi;
6.  vodenje projekta, notranji in zunanji nadzor ter dolgoročno
    spremljanje izvedenih ukrepov.


   Financiranje EIB je namenjeno sklenjenim pogodbam, ki se nanašajo na
sestavine pod 3, 4 in 5 zgoraj.
   Priprava ukrepov za varno in trajno zaprtje se je začela proti koncu leta
1990, dela na lokaciji so se začela leta 1994. Dokončanje ukrepov za
odpravo pomanjkljivosti je predvideno za konec leta 2005, čemur bo
sledilo 5-letno kratkoročno obdobje opazovanja.
