The term of the EPC Agreement is based on the project construction and workflow completion plan, subject to amendment to the terms of the EPC Agreement.

Blue Sphere Brabant may terminate the EPC Agreement for a gross violation of work quality or safety regulations, subject to a 5-day cure period. Anaergia may terminate the EPC Agreement for a failure of Blue Sphere Brabant to make specified reimbursements or a failure to make requirement payments within 30 days of demand.
Also on December 5, 2017, Blue Sphere Brabant entered into a Service, Maintenance and Operation Agreement, dated as of December 4, 2017, with Anaergia (the “O&M Agreement”), to which Anaergia will provide the day-to-day operation, service and maintenance at the BSB Facility. The O&M Agreement is for a term of 12 years beginning on the date that the BSB Facility achieves substantial completion, as defined in the EPC Agreement. During the term of the O&M Agreement, Anaergia will receive a fixed fee and pass through costs of €2,741,880 per year exclusive of VAT, paid monthly.
Either party may terminate the O&M Agreement upon a bankruptcy/insolvency of the other party.

The Performance Guarantee provides for a guaranteed operation level at the BSB Facility of 22,680,000 Nm³/year, which is 94.5% of the output capacity, and specified maximum consumptions of consumables (electricity, water, caustic soda and diesel).
