Fehmarnbelt Fixed Link Project: Tunnel Track & Catenary Contract
The Fehmarnbelt Fixed Link Project is the final stage in the realisation of a straight traffic corridor between Scandinavia and continental Europe. This will be an immersed tunnel containing two dual carriageways and a twin-track railway. It will traverse the 19 km distance across the Fehmarnbelt between Rødby on the island of Lolland in Denmark and Puttgarden on the island of Fehmarn in northern Germany.
Femern A/S requires design, build (installation), testing and commissioning of the Tunnel Track & Catenary (TTC) systems described in section II.2.4). Further, Femern A/S requires maintenance of the systems for a defined period.
The track works under the TTC Contract is expected to cover:
• slab track in the tunnel and ramps (approximately 2 x 19.7 km)
• ballast (or slab) track from the end of the ramps on the approaches on the Danish and German sides (approximately 2 x 3.5 km on the Danish side and 2 x 2.2 km on the German side)
• crossovers on the Danish side (4 no.) and on the German side (4 no.) including point trace heating system
The overhead catenary system works under the TTC Contract is expected to cover:
• overhead catenary system (conductor rail) in the tunnel (approximately 2 x 18.4 km)
• overhead catenary system on the ramps and approaches on the Danish and German sides (approximately 2 x 4 km on the Danish side and 2 x 3 km om the German side)
• connection to the traction power substation on Lolland
• return current and earthing and bonding systems
• overhead line section panels (OberLeitungsSpannungsPrüfeinrichtung) installed in the rail tubes
• system separations
• switchgear installed in the special elements
• uninterrupted power supply system for OLSPs and SCADA type-systems
• fibre cable
Please note that the description of works mentioned above reflect the Contracting Entity’s current understanding of the available solutions and the Contracting Entity is interested in hearing from potential tenderers whether other technical solutions would be suitable as further laid out in the below mentioned document.
In order for entities to consider whether they could in fact be potential tenderers and in order for such potential tenderers to provide relevant input Femern A/S has prepared a document setting out an invitation to a preliminary market consultation. This document further details the specifics of the contract as well as the input requested and the process that will take place. The document can be found at https://docsend.com/view/xq9f5xh2ndn5u88p (password: Fehmarn8459!belt).
Femern A/S expects potential tenderers to prepare written responses to the questions raised in the invitation prior to the deadline set out therein. Following this Femern A/S will arrange bilateral meetings to discuss the responses to the questions and any further input provided by the potential tenderer. Femern A/S expects to be able to offer such meetings to all genuine potential tenderers, however, Femern A/S respectfully reserves the right to limit participation at its sole discretion in the circumstance where Femern A/S receives more than 8 responses. Femern A/S expects to take into account factors such as the quality of the response and the diversity of the participants when limiting the participation. Femern A/S does not intend to include entities which are not potential tenderers and reserves the right to require evidence of the capability to perform works of the nature required.
Please note that Femern A/S will take responses into consideration even if the potential tenderer is unable to partake in a meeting with Femern A/S (either as a result of Femern A/S limiting participation or as a result of the potential tenderer indicating that it is unable to partake in a meeting).
Please note that the date indicated in section II.3 below is only indicative of the earliest possible time a publication of a contract notice could occur.
