DFID 7105 Montserrat - Geothermal Energy Project

DEPARTMENT FOR INTERNATIONAL DEVELOPMENT | Published April 30, 2015  -  Deadline May 26, 2015

Actual CPV code is ‘75211200 Foreign Economic-Aid Related Services’. DFID is commissioning the drilling and subsequent testing of a new (the third) Geothermal Well on the UK Overseas Territory of Montserrat. As a UK Overseas Territory Montserrat have a constitutional relationship with the UK, and their citizens have a right to British citizenship. The UK government is committed under the United Nations charter “to promote to the utmost the well-being of the inhabitants of these territories”. DFID’s priority for Montserrat is to meet the “reasonable assistance needs” of its citizens as cost effectively as possible, while supporting the island to become more self-sufficient. Montserrat's economy is 100% fossil fuel based and this is an unsustainable position from an environmental, climate change and economic perspective. Electricity prices in Montserrat are some of the highest in the world and are significantly influenced by fluctuations in oil prices on the world market. The aim of this Project is the drilling of one geothermal well (MON#3) nominally 2,500 metres in depth with a final completion diameter of 8 ½ inches in the St Georges Hill area on the island of Montserrat. This well will complement 2 previously drilled wells in Montserrat (MON#1 and MON#2) (in the Richmond Hill area) and is part of DFID’s ongoing support to the Government of Montserrat (GoM) in developing a geothermal power plant in the south west of the island. It is hoped that the completed plant together with the 3 drilled wells (one of which will be used for re-injection) will provide between 2-5MW of electricity to Montserrat. Contract award is planned for October 2015, drilling commencing in January 2016, testing and commissioning and handover to be completed by June 2016. There will be a 6 month contingent liability period after the handover of MON#3 for any defects that may occur which will be included in the contract duration. The design and construction of the surface plant will take place concurrently under a separate contract to this arrangement.

Wind Turbine O&M

Offshore Renewable Energy Catapult | Published July 17, 2015  -  Deadline August 17, 2015

This notice for the provision of an Operations and Maintenance Service for a wind turbine and adjacent met mast (the “Service”) has been issued by the Offshore Renewable Energy Catapult (“ORE Catapult”) as a competitive procurement exercise in accordance with the "Competitive Procedure with Negotiation" for tendering under the Public Contracts Regulations 2015 (as amended from time to time). Catapults Catapults are centres of excellence that bridge the gap between business, academia, research and government. They are a powerful new element in the UK economy, helping businesses develop relevant and exciting ideas in receptive and invigorating environments. By promoting collaboration and knowledge exchange, many progressive businesses and organisations will be able to build new partnerships with reduced risks. Companies in a wide range of markets will see the Catapults as an invaluable resource to develop their businesses.Project Background The turbine is a standalone single former Samsung Heavy Industries (SHI) large 7MW offshore turbine prototype installed approximately 50m from shore in the Scottish Enterprise owned Fife Energy Park connected to the Scottish Power electricity network at 11kV. We are seeking suppliers who can be proactive and recognise a potential serial problem, investigate the issue, come up with a solution, and communicate with ORE Catapult throughout the whole process. You must be an organisation who is good at troubleshooting, who can identify problems that will help keep maintenance costs down and availability up. The turbine wind resource is significantly constrained by the land-form and estuarine location and there are a number of constraints on the turbine operations due to (i) low angle sun shadow flicker; (ii) airborne noise immediately adjacent to neighbours (500m distance). Whilst being a prototype, the turbine has been constructed using mainly commercial off the shelf hardware and SHI is providing ORE Catapult the full intellectual property package to operate and modify the turbine including its software, and all Operations and Maintenance manuals. Suppliers are to note that ORE Catapult intend to use the wind turbine / met mast site primarily for research and development (R&D) activity. Suppliers are to note that R&D activity is essential and cannot frustrate the terms of the Contract and that any T&C’s must reflect that position. This is a performance based scope of work to deliver the Service which shall include the scope of service as per documents downloaded in support of this notice.

DFID 7245 Ethiopian Investment Advisory Facility (EIAF)

DEPARTMENT FOR INTERNATIONAL DEVELOPMENT | Published August 11, 2015  -  Deadline September 14, 2015

Actual CPV code is ‘75211200 Foreign Economic-Aid Related Services’. The Department for International Development (DFID) are seeking a service provider to administer a facility under a new programme the ‘Ethiopian Investment Advisory Facility’. DFID are seeking an implementing partner to manage the facility. The facility is expected to be a large programme comprised of many sub-projects and run by one service provider. The service provider will set up a Programme Management Unit (PMU), which will reside in Ethiopia, to manage the facility and all its sub-projects. The PMU will have access to a large pool of expertise that it can access depending on what is required for each sub-project. Such approaches have already been successfully deployed elsewhere by DFID, including the Nigeria Infrastructure Advisory Facility (NIAF); the Climate Resilient Infrastructure Development Facility (CRIDF), based in Southern Africa; and the Centre for Inclusive Growth in Nepal. The proposed Ethiopia Investment Advisory Facility will focus on improving the effectiveness of public investment in Ethiopia. It will consist of four main pillars: urban development, energy, trade logistics and cross-cutting issues. Within each of these pillars, the common focus will be improving the effectiveness of public investment decisions and their implementation, and removing impediments to structural transformation of the Ethiopian economy. The functions we expect from the implementing partner include, but are not limited to: •Develop good relationships with relevant Government of Ethiopia counterparts in each of the focus areas. •Identification and management of a large pool of consultants that can be drawn upon at short notice to fulfil requests for technical assistance from government. •Delivery, management and quality assurance of technical assistance. •Identification and promotion of lesson-learning and synergies between sectors that can help the programme as a whole to add up to more than the sum of its parts. Interested parties should register on the DFID Portal and serch for procurement reference 'PO 7245' to view all related documentation, and should use the ‘Dialogue/ Clarification' function on the DFID Portal to raise any initial questions.
