Following the launch of qualification for geophysical investigation services, Ørsted has now invited geotechnical investigation providers to register at its qualification platform, so they could be pre-qualified for participation in the future tenders.
Same as with the previously announced procedure, the preparation of the bidder lists will be based on the suppliers which have passed the qualification procedure without further notification in the Supplement to the Official Journal of the European Communities (Tenders Electronic Daily).
The qualification system for geotechnical investigation services is open to all suppliers of the services covered by the scope of the qualification system. Suppliers may apply for qualification at any time and free of charge.
Contracting entities in Ørsted’s system include the company’s various business units, ventures in which Ørsted has a 50% say, as well as (new) companies set up as part of the activities of its offshore wind business.
According to Ørsted, new companies are especially (but not exclusively) established in connection with the development, building or operation of new offshore wind farms, and this is particularly relevant in relation to coming wind farms in Germany, the Netherlands, UK, North America (Canada and the United States of America), Taiwan, and Denmark.
