Debrecen signs contract for €38m tram order
The local council of Debrecen (E Hungary) on Tuesday signed a contract for the delivery of 18 new trams worth €38m from Spain's CAF.
The contract was signed after the local council won two procedures brought by losers in the tender for the trams to the Public Procurement Arbitration Board (KDB).
European Union and state funding is covering about 91% of the cost of the trams.
The tender for the trams was the sixth called after the KDB invalidated the results of all of the earlier ones.
