Section IV: Procedure

IV.1)Description
IV.1.1)Type of procedure
Negotiated procedure without prior publication
  • The products involved are manufactured purely for the purpose of research, experiment, study or development under the conditions stated in the directive
Explanation:

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.
