Galati Urban Transport Rehabilitation Project - Automated Fare Collection

 | Published March 12, 2015  -  Deadline April 9, 2015
cpvs

Executing Agency (Client): The City of Galati (the City)
 
Assignment Description: 
The city of Galati, with a population of 250,000, is a significant commercial and industrial centre in southeast Romania, with the local economy related to steel processing (ArcelorMittal), ship manufacturing (Damen Shipyards) and adjacent industries. Galati has about 345 kilometres of streets in total. The City has already completed the first phase of the urban infrastructure upgrade with a total amount of about EUR 14 million, co-financed from the European Regional Development Fund; however, there are still investments needs in the urban transport sector and related infrastructure.
 
The City has therefore approached the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development with a request to provide funding for the modernisation of urban roads and for an upgrade to related road and public transport management measures. The Bank is considering providing a RON 100 million (or EUR 22.6 m equivalent) to the Municipality of Galati, to finance key investments in the urban transport sector and related infrastructure.
 
The Project’s objectives are to enhance the quality of public transport services and mobility of the citizens of Galati. The Project will finance the rehabilitation and performance-based maintenance arrangements of about 15 kilometres of streets, which are priority investments according to the City’s urban development plan. In addition, the Project will finance the acquisition of trolley-buses and the introduction of an automated fare collection system, both of which designed to improve the attractiveness of public transport for users.
 
The current fare collection system in the City is obsolete. The public system is based on  monthly paper passes and single fares collected as cash on-board by conductors. High cost and fare evasion along with ‘cash leakage’ are the primary shortcomings of the current system.
 
Whilst Transurb operation is established and every ticket issued is recorded, the private mini bus ticketing system is unstructured and unregulated and suffers from a number of issues as below:
  • Lack of detailed accounting of cash for each individual transaction
  • Significant loss of income caused by a cash-based ticket system
  • Lack of regulatory measures to police routes, frequency and compliance of route fuel theft
  • Non-payment of taxes on ticket revenue
  • Buses carrying more passengers than the legal limit
  • Buses exceeding safety standards
Given the financial position of Transurb and the need for a City subsidy of some €8 million/year, the City has embarked on reform of the urban transport sector that includes transport optimisation and improvement the company’s public transport operations. Given the current situation and following a study commission by Galati Municipality (available to the consultant), the City have decided to introduce an automated fare collection system.
 
The City plans to have an AFC system where users are issued with contactless smart cards carrying information with a stored value. It is planned that the card will be able to carry money, various public and private operated transport tickets and dedicated applications for access to other services including, parking zones or bicycle rental.
 
The cards will be available both personalised and none personalised.  Personalized cards will have a set of personal data printed on them to identify the card holder and give an access to certain pre-defined benefits, like discounts for public transport services.  Personalised cards will be issued and required for the groups of citizens entitled to free of charge public transport services.
 
According to the City’s plans, the new AFC system will allow the tracking of the public transport fleet. This will be used to monitor operator’s performance and to pay for the actual delivered services. It should enable the improvement of service quality by providing real time information to users on the expected arrival of vehicles at stops.
 
The Consultant will carry out the following tasks, inter alia:
  • Public Transport Sector Overview
  • Review of the Legal Analysis
  • Business Plan and Project Justification
  • Design and scope of the AFC System
  • Procurement Support
  • Contract administration support

Implementation of a Green Economy Financing Facility in Romania, focusing on the residential sector

 | Published December 30, 2016  -  Deadline January 23, 2017
cpvs

Project Description:

The European Bank Reconstruction and Development (the “EBRD” or the “Bank”) is scaling up its operations of Green Economy Financing Facilities in Romania. In 2007 the EBRD launched its first the Energy Efficiency Finance Facility (“EEFF”), and the Romania SME Sustainable Energy Finance Facility (“RoSEFF”) in 2011.

 

Building on the experience and lessons learnt from EEFF, RoSEFF and other EBRD financing facilities for the residential sector, the EBRD is launching the a new Green Economy Financing Facility in Romania, focusing on the residential sector (the "Facility").

 

With energy intensity almost three times higher than the EU-28 average, Romania remains one of the most energy and carbon-intensive economies in the EU. The residential sector has the highest final energy consumption of all sectors in the country with about 90% of the building stock in need of modernisation.

 

Romania has adopted a national target to reduce primary energy consumption by 19% (approximately 10 Mtoe) by 2020 and the residential sector has an important part to play in meeting this target. A study commissioned by the Romanian Energy Regulator and overseen by the EBRD, estimated that energy efficiency upgrades in the residential sector could make the largest sectoral contribution towards achieving the national target. The study also found that the energy saving potential from thermal insulation of multi-family apartment blocks was approximately 40%.

 

The EBRD is planning to launch a Romania Green Economy Financing Facility to support the investment needs of the residential sector. Through the Facility, the EBRD aims to on-lend up to EUR 70 million through Participating Financial Institutions ("PFIs") to eligible Sub-borrowers (the "Sub-borrowers"). It will be the first dedicated EBRD operation in Romania targeting investment in the residential sector, covering energy efficiency, building-integrated renewable energy and water efficiency measures.

 

Assignment Description:

 

The implementation of the Facility will be supported by a dedicated technical cooperation (“TC”) package for a period of up to three years to support both PFIs and Sub-borrowers (including service providers and intermediaries).

 

The Bank now intends to engage a consulting company (the “Consultant”) to support the implementation of the Facility by carrying out a number of key tasks to establish and maintain an infrastructure to implement the Facility; undertake coordination work; and monitor and report on the proposed investments (the “Assignment”).

The support delivered through the Assignment will be essential for the implementation of the Facility by raising awareness among PFIs and their clients of best available technologies and benefits of resource saving investments. The Assignment will therefore play an important role in developing and maintaining a necessary infrastructure that enables the PFIs and ultimate beneficiaries to quickly identify eligible opportunities. The Assignment shall enable the EBRD to record and report on the impact achieved by the investments financed under the Facility.

 

The selected Consultant is expected to provide the following services:

(a) Establish an operational base in Bucharest and develop, maintain and update the Facility’s operational tools, web-based tools, legal advisory tools, documents, reports as required;

(b) Develop, maintain and further populate a Technology Selector (database of eligible materials, equipment and suppliers and installers) that includes pre-defined categories of technologies with specific minimum technical and environmental characteristics proven to result in fundamental and straightforward efficiency improvements;

(c) Prepare a communication plan and promote the Facility through communication activities including via a Facility website;

(d) Develop and implement a capacity building plan, which will target PFIs, Sub-borrowers and local experts;

(e) Organise the Facility Launch Event and an Award Ceremony with the objective to promote and encourage uptake of the Facility;

(f) Ensure that the technical eligibility criteria of the Facility are adhered to, including via desk-based appraisal and a sample selection of on-site visits;

(g) Assist perspective Sub-borrowers in identifying financing opportunities by assessing the technical and economic feasibility of the Sub-projects including carrying out project assessments as necessary, in the format provided by the EBRD. Sub-projects at the building-level shall require an assessment.

(h) Liaise with the EBRD as necessary to monitor and report on the implementation of the Facility;

(i) Prepare case studies and a database of lessons learned;

(j) Prepare a market survey at the end of the assignment. The market survey will reflect the market penetration of high-performing building technologies and will assess the overall impact of the Facility (e.g. changes in market size, number of suppliers of eligible measures, capacity and awareness rates).

 

Status of Selection Process: Interested firms or groups of firms are hereby invited to submit expressions of interest.

 

Assignment Start Date and Duration: The Assignment is expected to start in March 2017 and has an estimated overall duration of 36 months. It is envisaged that the Consultant will be contracted initially for 18 months with a contract extension for further 18 months subject to the successful uptake of the Facility, satisfactory performance of the Consultant and availability of Donor funding. The Facility may be extended further than the originally envisaged three years subject to the EBRD requirements, satisfactory performance of the Consultant and availability of Donor funding.

 

Cost Estimate for the Assignment: The initial budget is up to EUR 900,000 (for the first 18 months of the Facility implementation) with the possibility of extension up to EUR 3,000,000 (exclusive of VAT).

The Consultant must determine whether any VAT would be chargeable on the services and the basis for that determination, without taking into consideration the special status of the Bank as an IFI and state this to the Bank in their response to the Invitation for Expressions of Interest. To the extent that a Consultant incurs input VAT on goods and services purchased in connection with the provision of services (e.g. VAT on airline ticket) which is not otherwise recoverable by the consultant from the local tax authority, the gross cost to the consultant of such expenses shall be treated as a reimbursable expense.
