JSCo «Russian Railways» announces open tender

The tender will be conducted according to the requirements of Federal Law No. 223-FZ dated July 18, 2011 “On Purchasing Goods, Works, Services by Certain Types of Legal Entities” and the Regulation on Placing Orders for Purchasing Goods, Works and Services for Principal Business Activities of JSCo “RZD.” The tender is announced on the basis of the instructions of the Russian Federation’s government. In May of 2013, Russian President V. V.  Putin made a decision on implementation of the pilot project of the Moscow — Kazan HSR. On September 30 of 2013, Chairman of the Government of the Russian Federation D. A.  Medvedev approved the Network Action Plan for the project implementation. The design tender was announced according to the instructions of the Chairman of the RF Government. *****The Moscow — Kazan HSR pilot line will be 770 km long, spanning 7 constituent entities of Russia, with the total population exceeding 25M people. The project calls for 15 stops: 5 in major cities (Moscow, Vladimir, Nizhny Novgorod, Cheboksary, and Kazan) and 10 regional cities. Travel time along the HSR from Moscow to Kazan will be 3.5 hours, from Nizhny Novgorod to Cheboksary — 1 hour, to Kazan — 1.5 hours. The annual passenger traffic along the route during the first years of operation is estimated at 10.5M people. The HSR project is the largest infrastructural project in modern Russia; its implementation will require application of the public-private partnership mechanisms. Investments in the project will provide a large-scale support to the Russian industry, primarily metallurgy (production of tracks and metal structures), mechanical engineering, the sector of construction materials, trade, and science. A consortium of leading Russian institutes performs calculations of macroeconomic effects of the HSR launch, which significantly exceed investments in the rail line construction. The project calls for deep (at least 80%) localization of advanced construction, creation of more than 370K new jobs, development of small and mid-size businesses in the regions of the rail line route. The results of the research and studies were confirmed by the Russian Ministry of Economic Development. In the proposed plan, the Moscow — Kazan HSR project will be viable both for the government and private investors. Further information about the project and status of its implementation can be obtained on the website of JSC “High-Speed Rail Lines,” a subsidiary of JSCo “RZD,” the HSR design office at http://www.hsrail.ru.
