Pasazieru Vilciens-CAF contract under the scrutiny of the European Commission

The European Commission has warned Latvia that if implementation of the train supply agreement signed by the joint-stock Pasazieru vilciens (Passenger Train) company and Spain’s Construcciones y Ayxiliar de Ferrocarriles, (CAF) continues, Latvia may not receive the LVL 100 Million (EUR 143 Million) that were to be provided from the European Union’s Cohesion Fund as co-financing for the project.

The European Commission has encouraged Latvian authorities to find an alternative and to take necessary measures.
Experts from the Latvian Ministry of Finances have declared ready to cooperate with the Ministry of Transport to find solutions.

Pasazieru vilciens has signed this year a contract with CAF for the delivery of 34 electric trains and 7 diesel trains. The management of  Pasazieru Vilciens said that the means for awarding the contract has observed all provisions in force.
