PKP CARGO SA
Purchase of up to 20 multi-system mainline locomotives
The project concerns the purchase of 20 mainline electric-powered locomotives, compliant with the relevant technical specification for interoperability (TSI), for use in Poland and, in part, also in Germany, Austria, Czech Republic, Slovakia and Hungary. The project represents the replacement of a small part of the promoter's overall fleet of 1,300 electric locomotives.
Proposed EIB finance (Approximate amount)
EUR 40 million
Total cost (Approximate amount)
EUR 80 million
Rolling stock does not fall under either Annex I or Annex II of the Environmental Impact Assessment Directive (2011/92/EU) as manufacturing and use of rail rolling stock is not included in either list. The project is expected to have a positive environmental impact by helping the railways to maintain modal share in key sections of the freight market that are most appropriately met by rail.
The promoter is a public undertaking operating in the transport sector but is not subject to the EU procurement directives. In January 2015, the promoter in any case issued an open tender (published in the Official Journal of the EU with the reference OJEU 2015/S 014-020749) for the supply of the locomotives.
