Turkish electric and railway vehicles producer Bozankaya won the 16-tram tender for the northeastern Romanian city of Iasi.

As part of the €30-million ($33.2 million) tender, the first vehicles will be delivered in 18 months, the firm told Anadolu Agency.

The project, which will be financed mostly by the EU funds, includes production of 30-meter (98-feet) length five-module trams with 230-passenger capacity.

Previously, Bozankaya had won another tender in Romania for producing trams worth €33 million ($36.5 million).

The company also assumed the establishment of a metro line in Thailand’s capital Bangkok with the cooperation of Siemens.
