Primus Derling has successfully helped Skoda Vagonka, the manufacturer of electric passenger trains, draft an application to challenge the decision of Latvia's Pasazieru Vilciens public transport service provider relating to its decision to award a tender to deliver passenger trains and related equipment to another bidder.

Skoda Vagonka was challenging the results in a tend for the “Delivery of suburban electric passenger trains and equipment necessary for their maintenance and staff training,” which involved a purchase of 32 new suburban electric passenger trains. The total value of the procurement is above EUR 200 million. 

The Procurement Monitoring Bureau of Latvia set aside Pasazieru Vilciens’ decision to enter into a procurement contract with Patentes Talgo S.L., a Spanish manufacturer of passenger trains. The Bureau also obligated Pasazieru Vilciens to eliminate the methodological improprieties in its procurement procedure.

The Primus Derling team consisted of Partner Kristine Gaigule-Saveja and Associates Igors Dambrans and Edgars Pundurs.
