Stadler delivers first new passenger train to Estonia

Estonian railroad company Elektriraudtee has received its first new passenger train from the Swiss manufacturer Stadler, as the newspaper “Biznes&Baltija” reports today.

The four-car train was manufactured in Poland and reached Estonia via Belarus and Latvia, writes LETA.

Altogether, Elektriraudtee is to receive 18 electric trains and 20 diesel trains from Stadler, for a total price of EUR 79.5 million.

As reported, Latvia’s passenger train operator Pasazieru vilciens also announced train procurement in December 2009. In March 2011, the European Commission confirmed that LVL 100 million would be provided from the European Union’s Cohesion Fund for the project. Under the failed contract, the total cost of new 34 electric trains and seven diesel trains that Pasazieru vilciens wanted to buy was LVL 144, of which LVL 100 million would have been covered from the bloc’s Cohesion funds, whereas Pasazieru vilciens co-financing would be LVL 44 million.

However, at the beginning of October Pasazieru vilciens and Spain’s train manufacturer Construcciones y Auxiliares de Ferrocariles S.A. (CAF) failed to reach agreement on the procurement of new trains.
