Supply Chain Information Bulletin - September 2012

There has been significant interest from Welsh companies in the Pen y Cymoedd project's supply chain opportunities.

The information provided has been collected into a database and categorised to ensure that all registered companies receive direct notifications of relevant opportunities.

Project Timeline

Vattenfall will begin site investigation works later this year, which will run in parallel with felling works, which are being managed and procured by Forestry Commission Wales.

Main construction work is scheduled to commence in 2014, with turbine erection commencing late 2015 and commissioning in 2016.

Stage 1: Request to Qualify for BoP and Grid Main Contracts

All companies who have registered an interest in the main contractor roles for the Balance of Plant and Grid works and who meet our key criteria – based on average turnover – will receive an invitation to submit a pre qualification questionnaire imminently. We will be working with a view to awarding the final contracts in early 2013.

Sub Contract Opportunities

If you have registered your interest in second and third tier opportunities from the project, you will receive more information in the Autumn, when supply chain events will be offered to give you the opportunity to meet and register with the shortlisted main contractors.

These will be held in advance of the main contract tenders to ensure that all relevant contractors have the opportunity to understand the requirements and register directly with potential main contractors.

A further bulletin will be sent in September with more information on the events, opportunities and progress with the supply chain.

Online registration for sub contracts is still open!

The registration process will remain open for sub contracting opportunities until the end of August to maximise the opportunity for local companies to register.

Site Investigation Tender

Companies who have registered their interest in the site investigation works will be contacted in October and invited to tender for this opportunity.

Contract award will be in late 2012.
