Rail Baltica project launches global market survey to industry leaders

With the Rail Baltica Global Project building its maturity and to ensure a smooth transition to a full-scale construction phase, the Rail Baltica joint venture “RB Rail AS” and Latvian national implementing body SIA “Eiropas Dzelzceļa Līnijas” (EDZL) is launching a global market survey, aiming to collect feedback from the current and potential contract partners on the industry’s readiness and expectations on the approaching construction procurements, including the Rail Baltica mainline construction procurement in Latvia, planned to be launched in October 2021 by the EDZL.

“Despite the pandemic, which has had a visible impact on many industries, including the construction, RailBaltica project keeps showing good progress entering the next phase and getting ready for large-scale construction works. The Rail Baltica joint venture has already launched its first consolidated procurements for the supply of railway materials and components, including for the railway turnouts and expansion joints, sleepers with fastening systems, and under sleeper pads, cable ducts, as well as other construction materials. Additionally, we are in the last stages of developing a comprehensive Rail Baltica Global Project construction strategy, which will, among other things, feature pioneering elements ranging from centralized component sourcing and FIDIC best practice contracts to wide application of digital engineering systems, such as BIM, GIS, and AIM. These are the next significant milestone towards successfully launching large-scale construction works in all three Baltic countries for the Rail Baltica mainline,” says Agnis Driksna, CEO and Member of the Management Board of the Rail Baltica joint venture RB Rail AS.

In addition to the construction market survey, survey participants will be invited to a dedicated online seminar, planned to take place on September 8, 2021. Additionally, the Rail Baltica joint venture RB Rail AS also intends to organize a round of intensive B2B consultations with select respondents (spaces limited) with the primary focus on Global Project construction strategy development.
To participate in the market survey please apply here.

Kaspars Vingris, SIA Eiropas dzelzceļa līnijas Chairman of The Management Board: “This is a remarkable milestone in the implementation of the Rail Baltica project as part of the preparation works for the main line construction procurement in Latvia to be launched in Autumn 2021. We expect to meet many experienced market participants from across the industry and worldwide that will contribute to successfully connecting Latvian Rail Baltica main line to the European railway network.”

“Global market surveys are a routine that the joint venture has established a while ago to ensure a best practice approach and transparent process throughout the whole procurement, while actively promoting equal access and fair competition for these milestone tenders,” Driksna adds.
