First contract for Alstom in Bulgaria

18 December 2019Alstom signed a five-year contract for rolling stock maintenance for the Bulgarian national railway company BDZ Passenger Services. The contract is worth approximately 70 million Euros.

The scope of the contract includes full maintenance services, consisting of preventive and corrective maintenance as well as overhauls for 46 non-Alstom trains, including 22 diesel and 24 electric multiple units, totaling 126 cars.  

“Alstom extends to Bulgaria with a new maintenance contract,” said Gabriel Stanciu, Managing Director for Alstom in Romania, Bulgaria and Republic of Moldova. “This contract builds on our unique expertise in non-Alstom trains maintenance, consolidated and fully proven during our 15-year contract for the Bucharest metro trains and other maintenance projects worldwide. We have started the preliminary preparations in order to be able to provide maintenance. This is our first contract in Bulgaria and we are proud and grateful that the customer chose our expertise and extensive know-how”, Gabriel Stanciu concluded.

The trains started operation in 2006-2007, in regions with high circulation. The diesel ones operate on the Sofia-Kyustendil line and in Varna region. The EMUs are servicing traffic in the Sofia and Plovdiv areas.
