Section III: Legal, economic, financial and technical information

III.1)Conditions for participation
III.1.2)Economic and financial standing
List and brief description of selection criteria:

The applicant must confirm the economic ability in the ESPD part IV.B: “Economic and financial standing” with information from the latest annual report regarding the following economic indicators:

1. Equity (total equity incl. share capital, reserves, revaluation, retained earning etc.)

2. Equity ratio (equity/total assets). This must be stated with two decimals.

If the applicant is relying on the capacities of one or more other entities (e.g. a parent or sister company or a subcontractor) or the applicant is a group of economic operators (e.g. a consortium) the information for the ESPD part IV.B must also be given in a separate ESPD from each of these entities, cf. section VI.3 “Additional information”. It is the sole responsibility of the applicant to secure that the minimum level(s) of standards required are reached on the basis of consolidation 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, at the time of prequalification, be at least 25 mio. EUR

Concerning 2:

Equity ratio from the latest annual report must, at the time of prequalification, be at least 20 pct.

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

The applicant must include the up to 15 most comparable and relevant references 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 prequalification. 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. If a reference concerns a framework agreement the applicant must clarify the deliverables which have been performed at the time of the application.

The references can be stated either in the ESPD part IV.C: “Technical and professional ability” or in the available “Reference Sheet (PQ)” (doc.: 21/10196-31).

Each reference should include the following information (as also stated in doc. 21/10196-31):

• Name of the reference

• A detailed description of the works performed, including scope of work, deliverables,

services, etc.

• Voltage level (if relevant)

• Type of Construction Contract (e.g. turnkey, main contract, subcontract)

• Type of terms (e.g. Yellow book FIDIC, Green book FIDIC, ABT18, Orgalime)

• Type of collaboration with customer (e.g. Single contract, partnership contracts,

Framework agreement)

• Contract value (if possible)

• Contact information for the end customer (including contact person)

• Date of initiation and final delivery (day, month, year)

Any ambiguities and/or incomprehensibilities concerning the above information may have a negative effect on the selection of candidates, cf. section II.2.9. The applicant is therefore encouraged to answer each of the above-mentioned points clearly. Please note the “description” box can contain more text than is visible. I.e. it is possible to copy paste text into the box.

If the applicant is relying on the references of one or more other entities (e.g. a parent or sister company or a subcontractor) or the applicant is a group of economic operators (e.g. a consortium) the information for the ESPD part IV.C must also be given in a separate ESPD from each of these entities.

The number of references should not surpass a maximum of the 15 most comparable and relevant references. If the applicant is relying on the capacity of one or more other entities (e.g. a parent or sister company or a subcontractor) or the applicant is a group of economic operators (e.g. a consor-tium) the maximum number of references to be submitted must still be respected and cannot exceed 15 when combined. If more than 15 references are submitted, the Contracting Authority will only consider the 15 most recent references determined by date of final delivery (in this case not yet finished references will not be included unless less than 15 references has been completed, in which case the selection will be made on the basis of the earliest initiation date).

In case of discrepancy between the references stated in ESPD part IV.C and the ‘Reference Sheet (PQ)’, the references in the ‘Reference Sheet (PQ)’ have precedence.

Minimum level(s) of standards possibly required:

The applicant must submit one (1) reference for one turnkey high voltage substation at voltage level 50 kV or higher completed within the last 5 years counting backwards from submission date of prequalification.

III.1.4)Objective rules and criteria for participation
List and brief description of rules and criteria:

The applicant must submit a completed version of the ESPD.

Applicants may not be subject to the mandatory grounds for exclusion, cf. the Danish Public Procurement Act (udbudsloven) Section 135 (1-3) and 136.

Please see section VI.3 “Additional information” for further information regarding the ESPD. The application must be submitted through EU-Supply, cf. link in section I.1 in this notification. Applications not submitted via EU-supply or received after the deadline will not be accepted.

The Contracting Authority reserves the right to request the applicant to supplement, specify or complete the information submitted as part of the application.
