II.1.4)Short description:

With the climate agreement for energy and industry of the 22 June 2020 the majority of the Danish Parliament decided that Denmark will become the first country in the world to begin the construction of two energy island with a total capacity of 5 GW offshore wind.

One of the islands will be located in the North Sea with a capacity of 3 GW. This island can be further scaled up to 10 GW offshore wind. The other energy island will be established on the current island of Bornholm with a capacity of 2 GW. The islands are scheduled for completion by 2030.

Following the political decision, the Danish Energy Agency has instructed the Energinet to initiate site investigations, environmental and metocean studies and analysis for grid connection for the area of investigation.

Strategic Environmental Assessment (SEA) and Environmental Investigations for Offshore Wind Farms and Energy Islands in the North Sea

Lot No: 1
II.2.2)Additional CPV code(s)
71313000 Environmental engineering consultancy services
71313400 Environmental impact assessment for construction
II.2.3)Place of performance
NUTS code: DK Danmark
Main site or place of performance:

The North Sea The investigation area – which is located approximately 100 km west of Harboøre (Jutland) – and at Energinets and Consultants offices.

II.2.4)Description of the procurement:

A broad coalition of Danish parties decided on 22 June 2020 to initiate the realization of two energy islands:

In the North Sea, as an artificial island, which will serve as a hub for offshore wind farms with a total capacity of 3 GW and potentially up to 10 GW in the future.

In the Baltic Sea, the Island of Bornholm will be the physical hub for offshore wind farms with a total capacity of 2 GW.

Both energy islands will export power to the mainland of Denmark and neighboring countries and are intended to serve as a hub that collects electricity from the surrounding offshore windfarms and distributes the electricity between countries via electricity grid connections.

One of the islands will be located in the North Sea with a capacity of 3 GW, and this island will be extended in stages as the construction of new international connections to neighboring countries are developed, and the demand of power will increase. In the future, the island can be further scaled up to 10 GW offshore wind. The other energy island will be established on the current island of Bornholm with a capacity of 2 GW.

Following the political decision, the Danish Energy Agency has instructed the Energinet to initiate site investigations, environmental and metocean studies and analysis for grid connection for the area of investigation. The current tender (lot 1) concerns consultancy services for preparing environmental assessments, planning consents and marine environmental baseline investigations for an energy island with surrounding offshore wind farms in the North Sea.

The current tender concerns consultancy services for preparing environmental assessments, planning consents and marine environmental baseline investigations for two energy islands and offshore wind projects in Denmark.

For further details concerning the purchase, reference is made to the scope of services.

The tendered assignment is divided into 2 lots. Lot 1 concerns the North Sea and lot 2 concerns the Baltic Sea. Tenderers applying for pre-qualification will apply for both lot 1 and lot 2. Regardless of the tenderers being pre-qualified for lot 1 and lot 2, a tenderer will maximum be awarded one (1) lot. Lot 1 will be prioritized, and the Tenderer awarded lot 1 will therefore have its tender-offer for lot 2 taken out of the evaluation for lot 2.

For further details concerning the purchase, reference is made to the scope of services and the rest of the tender material.

II.2.5)Award criteria
Price is not the only award criterion and all criteria are stated only in the procurement documents
II.2.6)Estimated value
Value excluding VAT: 3 000 000.00 EUR
II.2.7)Duration of the contract, framework agreement or dynamic purchasing system
Duration in months: 48

II.2.9)Information about the limits on the number of candidates to be invited
Envisaged number of candidates: 4
Objective criteria for choosing the limited number of candidates:

The contracting authority will prequalify 4 applicants in total for the two (2) lots.

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.

The following will be evaluated as positive:

• the references are of similar types of project in contents and extent of investigations;

• the references cover relevant environmental/technical topics, preferably both onshore and offshore, in relation to the tendered assignment such as impact assessments of an infrastructure project covering marine mammals, birds, navigational safety (incl. HAZID workshop), constraint analysis and visibility assessment;

• the references show a solid experience in environmental survey and assessment of major offshore projects, including interaction with environmental authorities and Danish Environmental legislation.

It is the sole responsibility of the applicant to secure that the minimum level(s) of standards required are reached when the applicant is relying on the capacity of other entities or when the applicant is a group of economic operators (e.g. a consortium).

Minimum level(s) of standards possibly required:

Concerning 1: Equity from the latest annual report must be at least DKK 10 000 000 or EUR 1 350 000.

III.1.3)Technical and professional ability
List and brief description of selection criteria:

The applicant must include the up to 6 most comparable and relevant references in total for both lots undertaken in the past five 5 years as part of the application. The references must be stated in the ESPD part IV.C: ‘Technical and professional ability’. Undertaken in the past five (5) years implies that the reference must not have been completed prior to the date reached when counting 5 years backwards from the submission date for pre-qualification. References older than this will not be taken into consideration. References which have not yet been fully completed can be included as part of the application, but if this is the case, the applicant must describe the parts which have not yet been delivered, and this may affect the evaluation of the applicant, cf. section II.2.9).

The references should include:

• a specific description of the work performed for each reference, including:

— a project description;

— a description of the services delivered with focus on topics relevant to tendered assignment under Energy Is-lands and Offshore wind farms in the North Sea and the Baltic Sea;
