Tenders for new railroad wagons

 

Czech Railways will open tenders for new railroad wagons with the estimated approximate value of ca. CZK 20bn. ČD’s board of directors’ member responsible for passenger transport, Michal Štěpán, has specified that ČD will seek 90 wagons and 31 long-distance electric locomotives, 30 electric and 8 diesel regional locomotives and five non-traction push-pull trains for regional transport in seven tenders. The company will enter into general agreements with winners and buy the locomotives only if it will obtain partial funding from the Transportation II Operational Programme (OPD II) or will reach an agreement on reimbursement with the parties ordering transport services.
