SOFIA (Bulgaria), November 18 (SeeNews) - Bulgaria's BDZ Passengers, part of state-owned railway group BDZ Holding, said on Monday that it has launched a tender for awarding a contract for supply and maintenance of 10 new electric locomotives, worth an estimated 57.5 million levs ($32.5 million/29.4 million euro), VAT excluded.

Candidates should prove that they have generated a minimum total turnover of 60 million levs in the past three full financial years, of which at least 35 million levs from similar contracts, BDZ Passengers said in a tender notice.

The deadline for submitting expressions of interest is December 16. Selected candidates are expected to be invited to submit offers on February 28.

Bids will be ranked based on price, which will form 40% of the final mark, warranty period (20%), time for delivery of the first locomotive (20%), as well as time for delivering all ten locomotives (20%).

Last week, BDZ Passengers opened a tender for the lease of eight electric locomotives, after the company was recently forced to temporarily suspend the operation of several routes due to insufficient rolling stock.

(1 euro = 1.95583 levs)
