II.1.5)Short description of the contract or purchase(s):

Orkney Islands Council has identified a market need for a Low Sulphur Marine Gas Oil bunkering supply operation to be established at its Harbour Authority ports of Kirkwall and Scapa Flow for the purposes of bunkering vessels either berthed or at anchor. The Council therefore wishes to engage with a single contractor which will commit to the provision of such a supply operation as a preferred supplier in a business relationship, short of a full service delivery contract, with the Harbour Authority.
No payments will be made to the Contractor in terms of supply or services provided under the contract. The delivery of the Bunkering supply operation will be at the sole expense and commercial risk of the Contractor as the supplying organisation. However, in lieu of payment, the Council anticipates offering preferential terms on a range of services and facilities; including assured berthing arrangements, compound harbour dues, marketing support and information, risk assessment support and market analysis. Such preferential terms will be detailed in the Invitation to Tender documentation.
