Stadler, in consortium with Erion, has emerged as the winner of the tender issued by the Spanish
Administration of Railway Infrastructure (ADIF) for the supply of 22 rescue locomotives.
An objection period has now started following notification to the losing bidders that the Stadler-led consortium is to be awarded the contract. This objection period must expire before the award procedure can go ahead and a legally binding contract can be signed.
The state-owned Spanish Administration of Railway Infrastructure (ADIF) intends to sign a contract with Stadler to supply 22 rescue locomotives in a consortium with Erion.
Furthermore, the consortium is to be
commissioned with the maintenance of the vehicles over a period of eight years.
The locomotives are intended to carry-out high-speed railway lines inspection, rescue operations of stranded trains, snow clearance and hauling of maintenance trains.
Stadler is the consortium leader with an 80 percent share. Consortium partner ,Erion is a joint venture between Stadler and Spanish rail operator RENFE.
The objection period began following the award of the contract. Unsuccessful bidders can eventually decide whether to initiate a verification procedure against the decision. The contract cannot be legally signed until after this deadline, at which point Stadler will provide further information about the contract.
