Section II: Object
Viking Energy Network, Jarrow (VENJ)
South Tyneside Council wishes to establish a district energy network in Jarrow. The Viking Energy Network Jarrow (VENJ) project will extract low grade heat from the River Tyne at Jarrow Staithes and utilise heat pump technology to distribute low carbon heat to a district energy network in Jarrow. The energy network will provide heat and power to public sector customers. It will decrease the greenhouse gas emissions associated with the use of fossil fuels for heating in Jarrow in order to contribute to national level renewable energy, energy efficiency and CO2 targets and will establish South Tyneside Council as a leader of innovation in the area of climate change.
Supplier engagement: South Tyneside Council would like to undertake a market engagement event with organisations interesting in tendering for and delivering these works. Please note that participation in this consultation or registration of interest will not give any advantage in this procurement opportunity, but is purely an opportunity to potentially shape the requirements. We will consult with interested parties to get views and comments on the planned approach to market. Your responses will help to inform the procurement although we cannot guarantee that all views expressed will be taken into account.
The market engagement event is expected to take place on a date yet to be established between 18th and 29.11.2019.
If you wish to participate please contact firstname.lastname@example.org as soon as possible but by no later than 1.11.2019.
It is intended to issue the OJEU notice on tenders electronic daily/issue the notice on the UK e-notification service (in the event of Brexit) in December 2019 and suppliers are advised to monitor regularly for the opportunity to be published. Once the OJEU contract notice/UK e-notification notice has been published suppliers will be required to express interest in this opportunity on the NEPO ProContract system. If not already registered on ProContract please register at the following link: https://procontract.due-north.com
Suppliers will then be granted access to the tender documentation once it is published. Please note that registering on ProContract and expressing interest does not mean that you have bid for the tender — once the above steps are complete you will be required to complete and submit the tender documentation.
