VI.3)Additional information:

GPA is owned and operated by The Scottish Government.
GPA has circa 35 000 annual air traffic movements and is surrounded by land subject to significant planning applications for wind farm development.
GPA is owned and operated by ‘The Scottish Government’, and has circa 35 000 annual air traffic movements.
GPA is surrounded by land subject to significant planning applications for wind farm development. Due to their location, these wind farms will impact on the existing surveillance system generating clutter that will be displayed to ATC on the RDS. Currently GPA does not have a suitable means of mitigating or removing that clutter.
GPA requires a technical solution to mitigate the wind farm clutter generated by certain consented wind farm developments. In addition, currently there is a number of other wind farm developments in various stages of engagement which have the potential to impact adversely on GPA’s Surveillance and RDS System. GPA requires a radar system that will provide the basis to develop mitigation for other wind farms in the Region which impact on its ATC and RDS on a consistent basis without detriment to the operability of the ATC and RDS. This objective is referred to as the ‘Regional Solution’.
The objective is for the Regional Solution to be developed to facilitate the provision of a safe, resilient, compliant and effective approach radar system that will be capable of providing the basis to develop mitigation for individual wind farms within the region on a consistent basis. The region will cover 360° out to a range of 20 nm in the initial phase but extending out to 40 nm over time.
Please note, a number of organisations have previously conducted and are currently conducting technology trials at Glasgow Prestwick Airport. GPA is committed to treating all bidders equally throughout the tender process. Therefore, as part of the procurement process, GPA welcomes the opportunity to discuss with organisations the potential for any further technical trials. Organisations may wish to engage with GPA on this point as part of the tender process. GPA will make available any non-confidential information regarding the output of all tests conducted at the airport.
GPA has initiated a procurement programme for a wind farm resilient, Primary Surveillance Radar (PSR), Data Integration and Radar Display Systems, thus allowing development of wind turbines.
A PQQ is available from the contact point set out at Section 1 of this Notice.
PQQs must be requested, and completed PQQs returned by midday on 10.2.2015 in order for economic operators to have formally registered their interest.
Organisations interested in participating in this competition should register their interest in delivering this contract by emailing Steve Thomson at the email address specified in Section I.1
A PQQ will be issued to those organisations who registered their interest in delivering this opportunity.
Variant bids maybe accepted by GPA provided that their form and nature are approved by GPA in advance.
GPA reserves the right to elect not to award 1 of more lots. In particular, given the potential overlap between the lots, GPA reserves absolute discretion to determine whether each or any lot is required.
