Section II: Object
Biogas Demonstration Unit
As part of a BioCO2 research-project consisting of several partners, DTU, being one of the partners, wishes to acquire a new biogas demonstration unit (MTU), which will be one of its kind (prototype).
One objective of the BioCO2 project is to develop and demonstrate a novel technology, which is less energy intensive compared to existing upgrading technologies and allows for production of pure BioCO2.
The MTU to be procured by DTU will be constructed based on the unique knowhow of Union. The prototype is to be constructed and procured for research purposes only.
The MTU will be acquired by DTU, and DTU will maintain ownership of the MTU in the future.
Section IV: Procedure
The biogas demonstration unit to be procured is, to the best knowledge of DTU, unique. The design, construction and procurement of the MTU has a sole purpose of performing research and experimental studies. The MTU will be a prototype, meaning it has not been constructed previously, neither commercially nor research-wise. Likewise, there are no expectations of procuring or producing further units in the future. This is expected to be a one-time-only procurement.
The supplier, Union Engineering, has a unique knowhow and expertise in this specific field of expertise and is thus the best suited (and only) company to perform this delivery of constructing and delivering the MTU.
