Procurement watchdog rejects appeal in Miskolc tram tender
Hungary’s Public Procurement Arbitration Board (KDB) has rejected an appeal from Italy’s AnsaldoBreda of the result of a tender to deliver 31 trams to the city of Miskolc (NE Hungary), the decision published on the Public Procurement Arbitration Board’s website shows
The board earlier rejected a similar appeal from Spain’s CAF, another applicant in the tender.
The Hungarian-Czech joint venture Ganz-Skoda Kozlekedesi was declared the winner of the tender in November.
However, the Italian company’s representative has said they will appeal the decision at the European Court in Brussels.
The tender was the fourth Miskolc called for the trams. The earlier three were annulled by the Public Procurement Arbitration Board (KDB).
Miskolc has HUF 40bn to develop its tram system, most of it from EU funding.
