ESWE Verkehrsgesellschaft mbH intends to issue bid invitations for the supply and maintenance, including the ensured availability, of 221 electric buses (220 standard buses and 1 prototype) that are exclusively battery-operated. The charging infrastructure required for operation of the buses will also be advertised for bids in a Europe-wide negotiation procedure with upstream competition. In 2018, the winning bidder will have to deliver a true-to-original prototype of the buses, followed by 55 electric buses annually from 2019 onwards. Funding from the "Energy and Climate Fund" has already been approved.
We are advising ESWE comprehensively on the planned bid invitations, are structuring the procedure, drafting all bidding documents and are accompanying ESWE in all procedural steps.
