The state railway operator, Železnice Slovenskej republiky (ŽSR), plans to purchase rails. It has announced a tender with an estimated price of €17.95 million, excluding VAT (€21.6 million with VAT), the Sme daily wrote on February 20.

ŽSR also announced a public tender for welding works on a railway transport road and connected activities for a duration of two years, worth an estimated €12 million without VAT.

The deadline for the first tender is March 19, March 15 for the second. Both must be effective at least until the end of 2018. The suppliers are supposed to come from an electronic bidding, Sme wrote.

This stems from an announcement published in the Public Procurement Bulletin.
