Polish company Pojazdy Szynowe PESA Bydgoszcz Spolka Akcyjna (PESA) is the sole bidder of the tender for the procurement of 16 trams in Romanian city of Iasi.
PESA is the only company which submitted a bid in the tender launched by the Romanian Ministry of Regional Development and Public Administration for the procurement of 16 trams. If all requirements are met, PESA’s offer will be accepted by the contracting authority and the company will sign the contract for the delivery of the 16 trams of 30 metres.
The total cost of the procurement is estimated at EUR 38.61 million. The contract is not divided on lots and no framework agreement will be signed.
The attribution criterion is the best quality – price report, thus the financial component will weigh 80%, while the technical component, 20%.
Trams will have a minimum capacity of 55 passengers on seats, of which at least 6 seats low-floor accessible, and a total capacity of 165 passengers standing.
The procurement project will be financed through the Regional Operational Programme. Iasi tram procurement is one of the municipality’s projects for reviving this transport mode.
Previously, Iasi Municipality cancelled a tender for the procurement of 16 trams of around 26 m for lack of offers. The tender was launched in April 2019. Iasi Municipality is currently implementing three tram infrastructure rehabilitation projects financed with non-reimbursable European funds through the Regional Operational Programme 2014-2020.
