DALO has purchased ship bridge simulators through a EU-procurement in 2011. Kongsberg Maritime AS won the tender procedure and entered into a contract regarding the simulators with DALO on 14.12.2011. The sustainment contract expires on 1.7.2015. It is expected that the bridge simulators will last for another 10 years and in that period DALO needs sustainment of hardware, software and service on DALO existing bridge simulators from Kongsberg Maritime AS. Kongsberg Maritime AS is the only company who can handle these works and supplies effectively due to IP-rights of the ship bridge simulator.
On behalf of the independent public company Fjordforbindelsen Frederikssund, The Danish Road Directorate wishes to engage in a Second Market Consultation with interested parties to assess options to deliver tolling services for the Fjordforbindelsen Frederikssund project.
The project is currently under construction with a projected completion date of the end of October 2019. The Construction Law defines that the toll collection for Fjordforbindelsen Frederikssund is to be carried out by means of an Open Road Tolling (ORT) or free flow system.
The purpose of this Second Market Consultation is to:
— inform potentially interested parties about the forthcoming procurement, and
— to obtain a deeper understanding of the potential market participants,
— to test the draft version of the tender material,
— to adjust the future tender material in an appropriate manner,
— to have individual meetings with potential Tenderers.
The primary goal of the Danish Road Directorate in the implementation of a toll on the project is to make a contribution to the capital cost of building the infrastructure, and one of the aims of the toll scheme is to achieve payback of this investment as quickly as possible.
To this end, current priorities include the following:
— A very high rate of compliance by users.
— An efficient toll collection operation.
— Achieving the mobilisation programme, with a 2019 opening date.
It is intended to use the outcome of this Second Market Consultation in the development of the tender material for the tolling scheme, achieving a balance between the project's commercial interests and its risk profile; while also achieving the above aims of the Danish Road Directorate and aligning the tender material with market expectations.
By means of their answers to this Questionnaire, potential bidders are encouraged to use this opportunity to influence the tender material in a constructive manner, seeking to align their objectives with those of the Danish Road Directorate. The questionnaire is intended to secure equal treatment of all participants.
The Danish Road Directorate will host an information meeting on the second market consultation for Fjordforbindelsen Frederikssund Tolling Scheme on 10 October 2017 from 11:00 to 12:30 at Park Inn Hotel close to Femøren Metro Station in Copenhagen.
From 13:00-19:00 the Danish Road Directorate will also host individual meetings with the different operators that wishes to deepen their feedback to the draft documents published by the Danish Road Directorate 26.9.2017. The Danish Road Directorate will if needed also host individual meetings on 11.10.2017 at Niels Juels Gade 13, 1022 Copenhagen K from 9:00-18:00 for those operators not having an individual meeting on 10.10.2017. 45 minutes will be set aside of each operator. This allows for a total of maximum 15 individual meetings. In the event that the interest from the operators exceeds before mentioned 15 individual meetings a third meeting day will be set aside on 12.10.2017.
To sign up for the meeting and the individual meetings, simply send a mail to email@example.com and firstname.lastname@example.org stating your participation. For practical reasons, the Danish Road Directorate will appreciate that the notification of attendance is given no later than the 8.10.2017 at 12:00 noon. Please submit your preference for timing of the individual meeting. The timing for the individual meetings will be based on a first come principle.
