Skinest Rail has submitted a formal complaint to the European Commission over the modernization and renovation of the vehicles of the Budapest Metro Line M3 tender launched by Budapesti Közlekedési Zártkörűen Működő Részvénytársaság (BKV Zrt.).
BKV Zrt. has qualified Skinest Rail bid as invalid on July 8 and awarded Russian Metrowagonmash with the tender.
Skinest Rail considers that its bid was more favorable in every key aspect, as its proposal meets all modern technical requirements – asynchronous drive, disc brakes, pneumatic suspension, longer life cycle, etc. – and the eight points cited by BKV Zrt. as reasons to disqualify the Skinest bid are formal in character.
