II.1.5)Short description of the contract or purchase(s)
These standalone units will assist Highways England to form a national monitoring network that will not only provide an overview of air pollution across our network but will enable Highways England to plan future schemes (via the data acquired).
These monitoring units will be required to be positioned across numerous sites, across England that will be adjacent the strategic road network. Each monitoring station/equipment will therefore be required to be integrated within a single cabinet suitable for urban/kerbside use.
Highways England is looking to procure up to 3 types of monitoring units that are fully capable of measuring a combination of Nitrogen Oxide (NOx), Ozone (O3) and Air Particles (Pm). In addition to these measurement capabilities, each unit will be required to have its own data acquisition (both recording and storage) capability (This data will need to be fully accessible by Highways England operatives).— The NO/NO2/NOx measure is required to be compliant to ISO 7996 and CEN EN 14211:2005;— The Ozone measure is required to be compliant to CEN EN 14625:2012;
— The particulates monitor should be MCERTS approved for PM10 and PM2.5.
Each finished unit will need to be delivered and positioned onto a pre-made concrete base, that will have its own integrated power supply (these bases are currently being procured via another source). This procurement is only therefore for the supply of the units (to the required specification); the delivery and installation of the units when designated by the monitoring programme (to be confirmed); commissioning and calibration of the monitoring stations together with ongoing maintenance and continued support (including for emergencies) for up to a 5 year period.
Full details of the all the site locations as identified are to be found within the tender documentation.
