Espanha | “A união faz a força” para ganhar o trem bala brasileiro

Espanha | “A união faz a força” para ganhar o trem bala brasileiro | Rail and Metro News | Scoop.it

English: The Spanish Government negotiates the creation of a unique consortium of public and private companies to bid for the first high-speed train in Brazil.

 

por Ricardo Escudero Viñas 

O Governo espanhol faz tratativas para a criação de um único consorcio de empresas públicas e privadas espanholas que concorram ao primeiro trem de alta velocidade do Brasil. O secretário de Estado de Infraestruturas e Planejamento espanhol, Rafael Catalá, disse que o governo "pediu esforços de fusão" às empresas interessadas em fazer parte do consórcio.

 

Esta fórmula consorcial, na que a Espanha se apresenta como um único grupo liderado pelas empresas estatais Adif, Renfe e Ineco, tem sido a estratégia ganhadora para o projeto do trem de alta velocidade entre as cidades da Meca e Medina na Arábia Saudita, ganho pelos espanhóis.

RailwayBrazil.com Bernardo Figueiredo fighting against time: rail infrastructure Brazil | Rail and Metro News | Scoop.it

Bernardo Figueiredo, President of EPL (Brazilian agency for Planning and Logistics) says environmental licenses for new railway projects in Brazil may have shortened in two years the term to be given. This will result from the new role of EPL, which will assume the environmental licensing process in behalf of potential winners of the bidding. This will occur at a stage prior to bidding. Since then, this role will be up to the new concessioner.

 

Currently the winner starts the process of obtaining environmental licenses after being awarded. In Brazil this process is very cumbersome and slow. With the new procedure proposed by EPL, whole project may gain up to two years.

 

By changing these procedures EPL intends to increase legal certainty and greater assurance about the environmental viability. New procedure will allow greater predictability of costs and deadlines related to environmental actions.
