Bids invited to supply rolling stock to Egypt

11 August 2016

Tender closes on 1 November

European Bank for Reconstruction & Development (EBRD) has invited firms to bid for the contract to design, install and maintain six train sets on behalf of Egyptian National Railways (ENR).

The deadline for the submission of offers is 1 November.

The design, supply, installation and commissioning of the train sets, including the required maintenance and training during the warranty period, will be financed by a loan provided by EBRD to support Egypt’s national railway restructuring project.

Subsequent maintenance of the train sets and the required theoretical and on-the-job training beyond the warranty period will be funded by ENR.

EBRD is understood to have invested a total of $1.9bn in 34 projects across different sectors in Egypt since 2012, when it began operating in the country.

This includes a $100m loan to the National Authority for Tunnels (NAT) for the acquisition of 13 train sets for Line 2 of the Cairo Metro.

EBRD has also pledged to contribute $250m for the revival of the out-of-service tramway that links the Ramses and Almaza areas in Cairo.
