Section IV: Procedure

IV.1)Description
IV.1.1)Type of procedure
Award of a contract without prior publication of a call for competition in the Official Journal of the European Union in the cases listed below
  • The works, supplies or services can be provided only by a particular economic operator for the following reason:
    • absence of competition for technical reasons
Explanation:

World in a Box Finland Oy has developed the RAM software during a period of more than 20 years and thereby acquired unique know-how for many critical parts of the RAM software that cannot be transferred to other consultancies.

This includes:

— specific, technical insight and knowledge into the software,

— 20 years of experience working with software code from DTU researchers, industry software makers and end-users,

— knowledge on building COM executables (technology from the 1970s) based on Fortran 77 code,

— a comprehensive user-support system with thousands of users.

During the past 2 years, DTU Wind Energy has transferred a significant part of the required know-how in-house and reduced the need for supplementary IT-services to a minimum. Thus, only the know-how that is not transferable remains with World in a Box, making them the only supplier capable of delivering the services needed.

The further development of the RAM software is critical to important research and educational activities as well as to our value creation in the wind energy sector and society. Only World in a Box Finland Oy has the unique know-how required to support this mission.
