Letbane Odense says it will issue a Europe-wide invitation to prequalify for the DKr 3bn ($US 520m) project immediately after the industry day on October 14, and suppliers will have until December to submit expressions of interest.

Five or six prequalified consortia are expected to go through to the bidding stage for the design-build-operate maintain contract.

The initial 14km line from Tarup Centre to the city centre, Odense university hospital, and Hjallese is due to open in 2020.
