Ukrzaliznytsia: Tender for the purchase of 100 passenger railcars for UAH 3 billion canceled

Ukrzaliznytsia planned to purchase:

  • compartment sleeping railcars – 51 units. for UAH 1.510 billion;
  • first-class sleeping railcars – 12 units. for UAH 349.1 million;
  • compartment sleeping railcars equipped for the transportation of disabled passengers in a wheelchair – 20 units. for UAH 633.7 million;
  • compartment sleeping railcars equipped for the transportation of disabled passengers in a wheelchair and a compartment of the head of the train – 17 units. for UAH 551.3 million.

A new procedure for renewing the rolling stock of Ukrzaliznytsia approved

Only the Kryukovsky Railcar Building Plant (KVSZ) was allowed to bid, so the tender did not take place due to the insufficient number of participants. In addition to KVSZ, applications for participation were submitted by CRRC Tangshan Co., Ltd., LLC “Terminal-Zakhid”, but they were not allowed to participate due to the inconsistency of the proposal with the tender documentation. The tender for the purchase of 100 passenger cars was announced in February 2021.
