Section VI: Complementary information

VI.3)Additional information:

EuroAsia has carefully analysed the various suggestions and feedback of the bidders that have participated in the clarification sessions and noted that various queries arose regarding the current tender configuration. Therefore, EuroAsia concluded that the competition within the tender could be enhanced if a revised procurement strategy is put in place. However, EuroAsia considers that the required modifications are substantial, and retendering is required. For this reason, EuroAsia has decided to:

(i) terminate the ongoing tenders; and

(ii) commence preparations to issue a new tender for the HVDC cables.
