Main site or location of works, place of delivery or of performance: Pool, Cornwall.
The site is to be offered under a development agreement and lease agreement underwhich the appointed provider will be required to fully fund, construct and run or oversee the running of the energy centre.

Draft contract documents will be included in the tender pack. Additional background information concerning the site location, its condition and its logistics will also be included.
For the purposes of advertising this contract opportunity, the overall contract value has been estimated, on the basis of a wood waste CHP plant , as being up to £5.6m (NPV over 25 years at 11% discount rate). However the choice and scale of energy centre technology is left to bidders to define, thus the actual contract value may be expected to vary significantly depending on the acceptabilty and suitability of the proposals put forward and substantiated by bidders.
Please note though that the latter figures and scenario are provided for illustrative guidance purposes only and to arrive at the indicative estimated contract value on that basis only as published below. As such prospective providers cannot necessarily rely on their accuracy of those assumptions either at this stage in the process or in the future.
