Portsmouth City Council – the ‘Council’ – is inviting tenders for inclusion onto a multi contractor framework agreement that will be used to let the purchase, installation and ongoing maintenance of Combined Heat and Power Engines (CHP).
Award of the framework and live project contract is targeted for September 2019. The agreement will run for a period of 4 years with an option to extend for a further 2 years.
The framework agreement will be established via evaluation of tenders submitted for the following live project:
o Supply, installation and ongoing maintenance of a CHP engine at the Mountbatten Leisure Centre.
The project will be let on an individual basis to the contractor who achieve the highest score. That contractor plus the next ranking contractors up to a maximum total number of 6 will be appointed onto the framework agreement. Call-off contracts may then be let on a ranked direct award or mini-competition basis
The whole life contract value (supply, installation & 15 year servicing package) is estimated to be ?600,000.
In 2018 the Mountbatten Leisure Centre’s gas usage totalled 3,200,000 kWh and electricity usage totalled 2,100,000 kWh. This electricity load is a reduction on previous years due to energy efficiency projects such as new lighting and VSD’s being installed. Half hourly gas and electricity data for 2018 – 2019 can be found in supporting documents (note data is for the whole site).
A site visit and bidders briefing will be held at the Mountbatten Centre on Wednesday 3rd July starting at 10.00am.
The deadline for submission for clarification is Friday 26th July (23:59) and the deadline for submission of tenders is Friday 2nd August (14:00).
For the Mountbatten Centre CHP the Council’s is inviting tenders on the basis of a 2 stage open book procedure whereby following completion of design, programme, installation methodology, installation cost, etc. under a 1st stage JCT Pre-Construction Service Agreement the Council will enter into a JCT Design & Build Contract with the contractor who will be responsible for all aspects of supply and installation.
However Tenderers may also submit a variant single stage lump sum bid at their option and also have the ability on both a reference and variant basis to put forward different CHP solutions.
The framework will be utilised to let works for sites with a variety of uses and will not be limited to leisure centres (for example). Although it is likely that higher value CHP works or CHPs with more complex specifications would be sourced via a bespoke advertised tender process there is no CHP size or model limit to the projects that could be let via the framework.
The Council reserves the right to tender projects on:
o A CHP engine supply only basis
o A CHP engine supply and installation basis
o A CHP engine supply, install and maintain basis
o A CHP engine supply, install, operate and …
