A Turkish company has fought off challenges to its successful bid to supply electric trolley buses to an east European capital city.
The Bucharest appeal court rejected an appeal filed by Polish company Solaris over the city's tender to purchase 100 semi autonomous trolleybuses, romania-insider.com reported.
The court's decision was final so Turkish firm Bozankaya, which won the tender, can start deliveries.
Bozankaya, in partnership with Sileo of Germany, was the sole bidder in the tender put out for bids by the Bucharest municipality last February.
Solaris and Skoda Electric challenged the tender.
The contract value was estimated at RON 214m (EUR44.5m), VAT excluded.
The trolleybuses will have a capacity of 96 passengers and 24 seats, an autonomy range of 20km (12 miles) and their electricity storage system is guaranteed for eight years or 480,000km.
