An exciting media release from KiwiRail:
KiwiRail has announced a short list of four potential suppliers to build Auckland’s new electric trains.
Each of the short-listed manufacturers will now have the opportunity to provide feedback into the technical requirements and specifications for the rolling stock before a full set of RFP (Request for Proposal) documents are released to them in August, Mr Quinn says.
The four rolling stock manufacturers are Hitachi Limited; Hyundai Rotem; Bombardier Transportation Australia Pty Limited; and a consortium of Construcciones y Auxiliar de Ferrocarriles, SA. (CAF) and Mitsubishi Corporation, KiwiRail chief executive Jim Quinn, said today.
