    Description
    Objectives

    Acquisition of 10 new trainsets for operation of regional services in Lombardy (Italy) and cross-border regional services between Lombardy and Ticino (Switzerland).

    The project will contribute to increasing the quality of passenger rail services in Lombardy and cross-border between Lombardy and Ticino. The new rolling stock is expected to allow more efficient operation, reduce maintenance costs, lower energy consumption and increase the level of comfort for passengers. Indirectly, by improving services, rolling stock renewal will help railways compete with other modes, particularly private vehicles, so as to maintain or improve its modal share. Shifting passenger flows from other modes to rail may result in reduced vehicle operation costs, safety and environmental benefits.

    Environmental aspects
    Procurement

    The project consists of acquisition of rolling stock, which is out of the scope of the Environmental Impact Assessment Directive (2011/92/EU), the Habitats Directive (92/43/EEC) and Birds Directive (2009/147/EC). No associated facilities are planned to be built; this will be confirmed at the appraisal. The project will promote a modal shift from road to rail and, therefore, generate environmental and safety benefits.

    The Bank will require the promoter to ensure that contracts for the implementation of the project have been tendered in accordance with the relevant applicable EU procurement legislation, Directive 2014/25/EU, as well as Directive 92/13/EEC, as interpreted by the Court of Justice of the EU, with publication of tender notices in the Official Journal of the EU (OJEU), as and where required.
