Section II: Object
KBH02 – Cable Route Survey
As part of the KBH02 ‘København02’ project Energinet wants to purchase cable route survey for the offshore part of the project.
The tendered assignment comprises performance of the following services:
— geophysical survey – landfall,
— geophysical survey – nearshore,
— geotechnical and environmental investigations,
— crossing survey,
— reporting and data delivery.
Area of investigation is in Copenhagen, Denmark.
Offshore in area of Copenhagen, Denmark.
The city development of the Danish capital, Copenhagen, is expanding off shore with the aim to create artificial islands for housing and commercial use in the marine harbor areas. As a consequence, it has been decided to replace an existing 132 kV subsea power cable, owned and operated by the client.
The new 132 kV cable is planned to consist of a ca. 10 km subsea power cable.
The scope of this assignment is related to the offshore part of the new 132 kV cable. The scope consist of geophysical survey, geotechnical and environmental investigations, crossing survey and reporting with data delivery.
Geophysical survey includes multi-beam echo-sounding for bathymetric mapping, side scan sonar for mapping of the seabed surface and a high-resolution magnetometry survey for mapping of UXOs, ferrous man-made object, marine archaeology and utility crossings such as power- or telecommunication cables. Water depths within the survey corridor are between approx. 0 m and 20 m MSL.
Geotechnical and environmental investigations consist of combined seabed sampling and CPT testing, to depth 3 m below seabed. Soil samples should be used for geotechnical investigations for soil proper-ties and environmental laboratory test.
ROV crossing survey should determine XYZ positions of the third parties’ utilities within the survey route, inclusive video documentation. Utilities are buried or located on the seabed.
Results must be delivered as reports, charts and digital deliverables as soon as possible within 2020.
If more than 3 applicants fulfills the minimum requirements, cf. Section III, the contracting authority will prequalify the 3-5 applicants who are evaluated as most qualified for the specific tendered assignment. Only these applicants will be invited to submit a tender. The selection of the applicants will be based on the submitted references. That is to which extend the reference(s) are assed to be similar to the tendered assignment, cf. Section II.2.4), in terms of comparability and relevance. As a result the number of references will not be the determining factor alone, but more importantly to which degree the specific forwarded references are comparable and relevant to the tendered assignment regarding solution and scope, especially concerning:
— magnitude and maritime environment (especially concerning water depth) where the services shall be performed. It will, however, in particular be rated positively if the applicants references (altogether) cover reference projects similar to the project area and scope. Finally, it will be rated positively if the references include more or all of the following survey activities:
1) Performance of geophysical survey;
2) Performance of geotechnical investigations;
3) Performance of crossing surveys; and
4) Data processing and interpretation.
Please note that this is a negotiated procedure. with the exception of mandatory parts, the tender documents may as a result undergo changes as part of the negotiation process.
