Rail Baltica Opens Public Tender for Cableway Components

The first open public procurement contract, for the supply of the cableway components, has been announced for Rail Baltica (RB).

When completed, the 870km railway infrastructure project will link Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland and, indirectly, Finland.

The tender, which is worth around 46m euros (55.2m USD), includes multi-ducts, cable ducts, cable channels, manholes and other supporting components for the construction of the Rail Baltica main line.

2021 will see the launch of major construction for the high-speed railway line in all three of the Baltic countries. Consequently, the public procurement documents for both materials and components will be prepared shortly.

Before publishing this public procurement, RB Rail AS conducted a supplier market study to determine the key advantages of centralised component supply and therefore economies of scale.

Mark Loader, RB Rail Chief Program Officer said:

“A project of the scale of Rail Baltica provides the opportunity to achieve major benefits from carrying out procurements for common materials and components for use across the whole 870km of the railway. We are delighted to launch the first of many tenders for these consolidated procurements. We hope that suppliers will recognise the scale of this opportunity and provide strong tenders for this and upcoming tenders.”

The final date for the submission of procurement applications is expected by 31 May 2021. More information about the tender process is available on the Rail Baltica website.
