According to the AMCU’s decision, on August 4, its administrative board considered Electrotrans’s complaint on the alleged violation of legislation in the field of public procurement. The board ruled to reject the complaint, according to Novoye Vremya.

In late July, Electrontrans requested that the AMCU cancel the announcement of intention by Kyivpastrans to sign a contract with Poland’s Pesa for the delivery of 40 pieces of 26-meter tram cars after the latter company won the tender.

As UNIAN reported earlier, a major Polish manufacturer of rail transport, Pesa Bydgoszcz, won a tender for the delivery of 40 tram cars worth UAH 1.813 billion to Kyiv’s municipal enterprise Kyivpastrans.

The Polish company has reportedly offered the price lower by a mere UAH 1,000.
