Tender launched for preparation of RB Operational Plan

The joint venture RB RAIL AS established as a main coordinator of the Rail Baltica Global project implementation announces an open competition “Preparation of the operational plan of the railway” with a proposal submission deadline of September 26, 2017. The objective of the tender is to prepare the overall Operational Plan Concept for Rail Baltica railway corridor, on short, medium and longer term. The Operational Plan Concept will be the proposed organization for the transport offer, which will be realized on the Rail Baltica railway.

The Plan will incorporate all physical, technical, human and organisational factors and resources to set up the most efficient production organisation for the Rail Baltica railway. The major targets of the Plan are reduced operation costs for the infrastructure lifetime and optimised transport plans for final customers. This shall allow to ultimately transfer the maximum of market share to the rail and to Rail Baltica in particular, going in line with the European Union funding instrument Connecting Europe Facility (CEF) objectives.

 The results of the Operational Plan study will be used to refine and improve the technical solutions and planning of the implementation of Rail Baltica. It will also serve in the optimization of investments during the construction phase.
