    Bids invited for implementation of first stage of railroad electrification project

    RIGA, Aug 10 (LETA) - An invitation for bids was issued on Friday as part of the first stage of the Latvian Railroad Network Electrification project, Latvijas Dzelzcels railroad company informed LETA.

    Bids will be accepted until September 20, all the requirements are listed on Latvijas Dzelzcels' website, in the Procurement Monitoring Bureau's system, and in the Official Journal of the European Union.

    Latvijas Dzelzcels reminds that the total cost of the first stage of the railroad network electrification project is estimated at EUR 425 million, of which EUR 347 million will be provided by the EU Cohesion Fund.

    During the first stage of the electrification project, three railroad lines will be electrified by the end of 2023: Daugavpils-Krustpils, Rezekne-Krustpils, and Krustpils-Riga.

    The three lines' power supply systems, overhead line systems, signals and interlocking systems, communication systems, technical safety systems, buildings and facilities will be reconstructed or built anew, thereby ensuring complete electrification of one transit corridor by 2023.

    Latvijas Dzelzcels is at the moment holding talks with the European Investment Bank to secure a loan for co-financing the project.
