Voluntary ex ante transparency notice
Section I: Contracting authority/entity

Section II: Object
Conclusion of an addendum to the works supply contract with Bombardier Transportation for the supply of 2 double-deck cars and 12 double-deck cars
Purchase of 2 additional double-deck DABpbzfa trolleys and 12 double-deck DBpza trolleys for use in the Hansenetz.
Purchase of 2 additional double-deck DABpbzfa trolleys and 12 double-deck DBpza trolleys.
The vehicles will be used in the Hansenetz from 2022 onwards. The LNVG is contractually obliged to make available to the RU the trains necessary for the operation of the network.
With the start of the Hansenetz 2 transport contract in December 2018, capacity increases were made, which had to reduce the reserve available at that time. In addition, additional train services have been ordered in the last two years. In addition, the HU XL Dosto is only completed by the end of 2026; until then, a train formation is needed as a further maintenance reserve for the implementation of the HU XL Dosto. The vehicles to be procured in this case are therefore urgently needed as a further maintenance reserve to ensure the availability of the 26 train assemblies promised to Metronom for operation on the Hanse Grid in 2 and for capacity extensions (increase of seating capacity).
Section IV: Procedure
Procurement is partly possible by implementing the existing options from the works supply contract with Bombardier and its existing addenda. Under the exception provided for in § 14(4)(2)(b) VgV, a negotiated procedure without a competition is justified, as the contract can only be carried out by Bombardier because of its technical characteristics. Taking into account the reasons for the purchase of vehicles set out in point II.2.4 above, the LNVG sees no alternative to direct commissioning of Bombardier. It is imperative that the vehicles to be manufactured are compatible with the fleet of vehicles used by the LNVG on the Hanseatic network without restrictions and are therefore freely interchangeable in operation. Both additional journeys and capacity increases (extension of trains) should be possible. This is only possible if all new vehicles can be freely coupled to existing vehicles and the whole vehicle management system (software) is compatible with each other. The new trains will be equipped to be fully integrated into the existing fleet. Free interchangeability is also possible. If individual wagons fail, they may be replaced by factory-same wagons. In the case of procurement of trains from another manufacturer, such replacement would not be possible. Failure of a wagon would therefore mean that the train would either have to be completely out of order or would not have to run in full ranking, i.e. with significantly reduced seating capacity. Only Bombardier can produce vehicles that can be coupled to the existing vehicles, as vehicle control and train communication must be carried out using the existing interfaces. Other procurement of compatible vehicles is not possible, as the market has shown.
Furthermore, a negotiated procedure without competition is justified under the exception provided for in Paragraph 14(4)(5) of the VgV, since the purpose of the contract is to obtain additional supplies from the original contractor for the partial renewal and extension of existing services and a change of undertaking would result in the purchase of a service with different technical characteristics which is not compatible with the existing fleet. There would be disproportionate technical difficulties in use and maintenance. In addition, a disproportionate effort would be required.
