State Enterprise "Moldova Railway" aims to buy more than 15 new freight locomotives and to repair the depot in Basarabeasca. Thus, suppliers of gaskets and the railway companies from any country are encouraged to participate in the tender.
According to the company, the tender will take place exclusively online, to avoid favoring certain companies.
The program is developed by European experts. Previously, "Moldova Railway" signed financing agreements with the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development and European Investment Bank for a project that foresees including purchase of more locomotives and rehabilitation of rail infrastructure.
In this regard, the EBRD and the EIB offers 52.5 million euros each and the EU - a grant of five million euro.
