Notified Body services tender announced for Rail Baltica infrastructure
RB Rail AS is planning to nominate a single NoBo provider to assess Rail Baltica’s trackside infrastructure according to the requirements set in TSI.
A tender has been announced by RB Rail AS for the provision of Notified Body (NoBo) services to assess and verify the conformity of the Rail Baltica infrastructure with European Technical Specifications for Interoperability (TSI).
RB Rail AS is planning to nominate a single NoBo service provider for the entire Rail Baltica line, throughout the design and construction phases of the project.
The selected NoBo provider will assess the Rail Baltica Global Project trackside infrastructure according to the requirements set in TSI as well as elaborate and issue relevant EC certificates of verification.
“Involvement of NoBo at an early stage of the project is an important step to ensure that Rail Baltica infrastructure, energy, control-command and signalling subsystems will be interoperable, function safely and uninterrupted,” said Mart Nielsen, Chief Technical Officer of RB Rail AS. “As an independent and accredited organisation, NoBo will provide a conformity assessment against the relevant requirements of the European Technical Specifications for Interoperability, which are necessary to launch the operations of Rail Baltica.”
The first stage of the procurement procedure includes the qualification of tenderers and is opened for the interested suppliers until 4 November 2019.
