Rail Baltica: project on track with first phase of contracts awarded by Ingerop

Ingerop has been appointed by the joint venture of Eiffage Génie Civil SAS (France), Budimex S.A. and Rizzani de Eccher S.p.A (ERB Rail) as the design coordinator on the civil engineering and track-laying contract for the construction of the Latvian section of Rail Baltica. ERB Rail was awarded the FIDIC contract by Eiropas Dzelzcela Linijas (EDZL), the national executive agent of Rail Baltica in Latvia on 21st December 2023.

The 3.7 billion euro, 230-kilometre-long Latvian section incorporates 175 engineering structures and 11 wildlife crossings. It is aimed at integrating the Baltic States into the European rail network, linking Helsinki in Finland with Warsaw in Poland. The track design will allow passenger trains to travel at 249 kilometres per hour and for freight trains to travel at 120 kilometres per hour.

“We look forward to working with Eiffage again, having worked closely together on HS2 and the Bretagne-Pays de la Loire HSR in France. The Rail Baltica project will strengthen our relationship with Eiffage as well as Rizzani de Eccher and Budimex”, Yves Metz, President of Ingerop said.
