The second procurement round of the international tender for the construction work of Rail Baltica mainline in Latvia for the provision of an engineering consultant and construction supervision service has been launched. By 15 February 2023, applicants will submit technical and financial offers for the construction supervision of the Rail Baltica mainline and related infrastructure of over 200 kilometers.
Companies that met the legal and experience qualification requirements specified in the procurement were invited to participate in the second round of the tender are “Italferr” SpA (Italy), “Systra” SA (France) and association of persons consisting of “Tecnica y Proyectos” SA and “Prointec” SAU (Spain).
The tender for construction supervision services takes place at the same time as the largest procurement for the construction of a railway line in Latvia. Both of these tenders – both for construction and its supervision – are taking place so that in 2023 the construction works of Rail Baltica mainline outside Riga can be started.
“Having a strong construction supervision team is essential so that next year we could start construction in the Southern direction, or from Riga in the direction to Lithuanian border. Along with the construction of international stations, ongoing design work for the Rail Baltica regional mobility points, development of infrastructure maintenance points and intermodal freight terminals is ongoing, confirming visible Rail Baltica project progress in Latvia,” said Kaspars Vingris, Chairman of the Board at Eiropas Dzelzceļa līnijas.
