Romania’s Railway Reform Authority waives off hydrogen-powered train tender

The Romanian Railway Reform Authority (RRA) has cancelled a tender to acquire 12 hydrogen-powered trains.

The decision was made automatically in the public procurement system, SEAP, due to no offers being submitted. The previous bidding procedure last November (2023) was also cancelled due to non-compliance of the sole offer submitted by the Alstom-Linde Gas consortium.

The total value of the project was over 868m lei ($189m) and funded through the National Recovery and Resilience Plan (NRRP). The majority of this was funded through European grants, with the remainder via a state contribution.

RRA will now initiate a new market consultation, before it determines its future strategy for the acquisition of the 12 hydrogen-powered trains.
