Albanian Railways - Track Access Charges Methodology Review and Asset Management Plan

 | Published November 4, 2016  -  Deadline December 1, 2016
cpvs

Project Description:

EBRD is considering a sovereign loan of up to EUR 36.87 million to the Government of Albania (the “Borrower” or “GoA”) to be channelled to Hekurudha Shqiptare (the “Albanian Railways”, the “Company” or “HSH”). The loan will be used to finance the rehabilitation of the 34.7 km railway line between the Tirana Public Transport Terminal (“PTT”) and the city of Durres and the construction of a new 7.4 km railway branch to connect with the Tirana International Airport (the “Project”). The Bank’s loan will be used to co-finance the construction works and works supervision related to the Project.

The Project is part of Route 2 of the Western Balkans Core Network connecting the cities of Podgorica in Montenegro and Vlore in Albania and has been established as an indicative extension to the Trans-European Transport Networks (“TEN-T”) to the Western Balkans core railway network.

The Project forms part of the Connectivity Agenda of the European Union (“EU”) which promotes transport connectivity in the Western Balkans as an important factor for the economic development, regional cooperation and EU integration.

The Project consists of the following components:

I. rehabilitation of the existing railway line between the cities of Tirana and Durres; and

II. construction of a new railway link to Tirana International Airport (“TIA”).

Implementation of the Project will be overseen by a Project Implementation Unit (“PIU”) comprising members of the Company, Ministry of Transport and Infrastructure (the “Ministry”, “MTI”) and other relevant stakeholders.


Assignment Description:

The Ministry is responsible for the overall management and development of sector policies. A new Rail Code based on EU directives is being drafted with the assistance of the European Commission and is expected to be adopted in 2016. Upon adoption, the new Rail Code should pave the way for restructuring HSH and separating train operations from infrastructure management in line with the acquis communautaire, and for setting up an independent regulatory authority and safety authority. In preparation for this separation a consultant (the “Consultant”), is required to assist MTI with the following tasks (the “Assignment”):

· Development of an Asset Management Plan (“AMP”), including an assessment of the full cost and direct cost of maintaining and operating the infrastructure including the following:

i. Preparation of an inventory of all assets for which HSH is responsible, including an assessment of the current condition, potential service level and remaining economic lifespan, taking into account the planned investments;

ii. Preparation of procedures for monitoring and reporting asset use (tonne-km, train-km, etc), equipment utilisation (km per annum per type of equipment), and labour (man-hours, health and safety including in particular monitoring and reporting of accidents, injuries, etc);

iii. Establishing a forecast of demand, physical standards and service levels required over the next 10 years for each section of the rail network. This includes maximum line speed, the proportion of track under speed restriction and line capacity;

iv. Preparing forecasts of the funding required for the plan period, together with the implications on service levels if the aggregate amount is reduced or increased by 25%. Assess the overall cost of operating the network and assist the MTI in developing a cost reporting structure that is suitable as a basis for the calculation of Track Access Charges; &

v. Developing an AMP covering each class of asset. The plan should separately consider condition monitoring (e.g. track recording), routine and preventative maintenance, periodic maintenance, renewal and upgrading and should take into account the required legislative, regulatory and other standards for the assets.


· Assistance with the implementation and application of the Track Access Charges methodology, including the following:

i. Preparation of a short overview on the compliance of the legislation with the relevant EU Directive;

ii. Review the current methodology for calculating the TAC and provide recommendations for improvements if necessary.

iii. Assist MTI in calculating the TAC in full compliance with the methodology and work with the Company to ensure that it is in a position to carry out all required steps in the TAC setting process itself without external assistance. In particular, based on the findings of the Asset Management Plan, assist HSH in determining the appropriate cost base to be used for the TAC calculations.

iv. Consulting with HSH, the Ministry of Transport and Infrastructure, Ministry of Finance, the Ministry of Economic Development, Tourism, Trade and Entrepreneurship and any other relevant stakeholders to address any obstacles to the effective implementation of the TAC methodology. This should include a review of the TAC in coordination with HSH and revising this contract if required; &

v. Developing appropriate performance indicators in order to incentivise good performance, considering financial incentives and penalties, including the development of efficiency targets.
