French’s leading railway infrastructure firm Alstom has signed a five-year contract for rolling stock maintenance for the Bulgarian national railway company BDZ Passenger Services. The contract is worth approximately 70 million Euros.
Under the contract, Alstom will be responsible for providing full Rolling Stock maintenance services, consisting of preventive and corrective maintenance as well as overhauls for 46 non-Alstom trains, including 22 diesel and 24 electric multiple units, totaling 126 cars. This is the first contract signed by Alstom with Bulgaria.
Gabriel Stanciu, Managing Director for Alstom in Romania, Bulgaria and Republic of Moldova said:
This contract builds on our unique expertise in non-Alstom trains maintenance, consolidated and fully proven during our 15-year contract for the Bucharest metro trains and other maintenance projects worldwide. We have started the preliminary preparations in order to be able to provide maintenance. This is our first contract in Bulgaria and we are proud and grateful that the customer chose our expertise and extensive know-how.
The trains started operation in 2006-2007, in regions with high circulation. The diesel ones operate on the Sofia–Kyustendil line and in Varna region. The EMUs are servicing traffic in the Sofia and Plovdiv areas.
The Bulgarian national railway company BDZ is Bulgaria’s state railway company and the largest railway carrier in the country, established as an entity in 1885. The BDZ headquarters are located in the capital Sofia. Since the 1990s the BDŽ has met serious competition from automotive transport in the country.
