Birmingham Airport is seeking to enter into up to two long term contracts for approximately 25 years for the supply of electricity and/or heat to meet the needs of Birmingham Airport.
Birmingham Airport will not invest capital in the electricity solution in relation to lots 1 and 2. The burden of any capital investment will be the responsibility of the provider.
Birmingham Airport does not have any land available for the siting of the electricity generation infrastructure and so the provider will be required to acquire the necessary land and to obtain all necessary permissions if their proposal requires generation infrastructure.
Heat infrastructure may be sited at Birmingham Airport but must be broadly within the footprint of Birmingham Airport’s existing heat infrastructure.
Birmingham Airport wishes to have its energy requirements delivered via this scheme at the earliest opportunity so as to maximise the associated economic benefits.
The procurement is split into 2 Lots:
Lot 1 — Supply of Power and Heat
Lot 2 — Supply of Power only
Lot 3 — Supply of Heat only
Tenderers bidding for Lot 2 (Power only) must submit a bid for Lot 1 (Power and Heat) in order for their proposal to be assessed. Tenderers may bid for Lot 3 (Heat only) or Lot 1 (Power and Heat) alone.
Birmingham Airport reserves the right to award whichever Lot or Lots are the most advantageous in accordance with the evaluation criteria and to abandon the other Lots.
For avoidance of doubt Birmingham Airport intends to award: a) Lots 1,2 or 3; b) Lots 2 and 3; or c) no Lots.
Birmingham Airport will consider a range of options for the provision of heat including investment by the appointed party to replace Birmingham Airport’s existing infrastructure to increase energy efficiency.
