Stolichen Avtotransport, the public transit provider of Bulgaria’s capital Sofia, has opened a new tender for the supply of 52 new electric buses and corresponding charging infrastructure.
The tender is worth a total of 27.6 million levs (14.1 million euro) and divided into two lots—one for 30 smaller electric buses of 5.5 to 7.5 metres in length. The remaining 22 e-buses are to measure 7.6 to 9.6 metres, municipally-owned Stolichen Avtotransport said in a tender notice. The first lot is worth about 12.5 million levs, while the other contract is estimated at 15.1 million levs.
The project benefits from EU funding under the Operational Programme Environment 2014-2020. Bidders must submit their offers by 21 April.
Bids will be ranked based on price, which carries 55% weight, as well as warranty conditions and technical characteristics.
The initial tender, launched in September 2019, was cancelled in January 2020 due to technical errors in the documentation.
