The project concerns the manufacture of rail rolling stock, an activity which falls outside the scope of the Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) Directive 2011/92/EC as amended. The new rolling stock will meet current standards for crashworthiness, energy efficiency and emissions. The arrangements for the stabling and maintenance of the rolling stock and the need for related infrastructure improvements will be assessed during the appraisal.
The Bank will require the promoter to ensure that any procurement procedures are done in accordance with the Bank's Guide to Procurement and the relevant applicable EU public procurement rules.
