RB Rail, a joint venture (JV) of three Baltic States, Estonia, Lithuania and Latvia, has launched an open competition focusing on developing the procurement and deployment strategy for the electrification of its Rail Baltica Global Project.
The ‘Rail Baltica energy subsystem procurement and deployment strategy’ tender primarily aims to produce a single solution deployment concept for the energy subsystem of the Rail Baltica railway line.
It expects to conduct a technical pre-study, a detailed market and supplier assessment, with a particular focus on ensuring optimum interoperability and on maximising economies of scale through procurement consolidation.
The tender has been issued as part of the Contracting Scheme agreement signed by the direct stakeholders of the Rail Baltica Global Project.
Interested parties are required to submit their proposals using the E-Tenders system tool by 4 July 2018.
RB Rail chief technical officer Mart Nielsen said: “This shall maximise the economic efficiency with cost savings driven by the potential economies of scale, ensure full and optimum interoperability, quality control and efficient supervision and put in place the best practise procurement model.
