Kamianske has invited tenders for the supply of new trams, which are to be financed with a loan from the European Investment Bank (EIB).

The tender is for the supply of single-section trams with a total value of EUR 14.3 million, the CFTS portal reports, citing the publication Alltransua.

According to the announcement, the tramcars must be 15 (±1) meters long, and at least one door of each tramcar must be low-floor. 100% low-floor models will also be accepted.

In addition to the tramcars, spare parts, repair equipment, and staff training must be supplied.

The first tramcar should be delivered within 52 weeks of receipt of the advance payment, and the entire batch should be delivered within 128 weeks.

Bids will be accepted until 20 February 2024.

Currently, the newest tram in Kamianske is a K1 high-floor tramcar, which was delivered to the city at the junction of 2013 and 2014. The rest of the tramcars in the city were manufactured before 1997.

The last upgrade took place from 2016 through 2021, when the company partially upgraded its fleet by purchasing used Tatra T3 and Tatra T6A5 tramcars from the Czech Republic.

In total, the company has 32 passenger tramcars on its books.

As reported, in April 2023, the Kamianske Mayor's Office published the document "On Support for the Participation of the Kamianske City Council in the ‘Ukraine II Urban Public Transport’ Project," under which it planned to purchase 20 new tramcars worth EUR 14.3 million with loans from the European Investment Bank.
