Latvian-Spanish consortium will be in charge of Rail Baltica station construction at Rīga airport

A joint Latvian-Spanish consortium will take charge of constructing a new rail terminal at Rīga International Airport as part of the ambitious Rail Baltica project, the company in charge of the project, RB Rail, said December 8. 

"A consortium consisting of SIA Forma 2 (Latvia) and Prointec S.A.U. (Spain) has won the open tender for the engineering and construction supervision of Rail Baltica station at the Riga International Airport and related infrastructure. The association has submitted the most economically advantageous tender. Supervision of engineering works will have to be ensured during the construction and warranty phase of the station building, access roads, overpass, and a new railway line," an announcement said.

At the beginning of September, four bidders submitted their applications. The contestants had formed consortiums representing construction supervision professionals from five countries – Germany, France, Latvia, Greece, and Spain.

The station at Riga International Airport will be the first high-speed rail and air connection center in the Baltics and construction of a 10-meter-high overpass will also be the first of a kind in Latvia, starting at Mazās Gramzdas Street and continuing for 2 km throughout the airport territory.

The duration of the contract is 10 years from the time of signing, including the provision of services for a period of five years during the construction contract warranty phase. The project is being implemented in five stages, and payments for the work performed will be made accordingly. The total price of the contract will be nearly 6 million euros (EUR 5,849,799.72 without VAT, to be precise).

As previously reported by LSM, Spanish companies have won a string of tenders as part of the Rail Baltica construction process.
