The tender will be held for six sites, and Russian Railways has not yet chosen a tender for participation, Misharin said. He also said that the company may establish a separate office in Brazil to act as an engineering company.
“The railroads here will be constructed on the basis of concession. A preliminary contest will be held in summer. There is a partner here, with whom we will possibly participate,” Misharin said.
He said that under the concession agreements 70% will be paid by the national bank, while 30% will be provided by the concessioners. The government will buy all the transportation volumes through a special company. Russian Railways can become the railroad’s operator in the future.
