II.1.4)Short description of the contract or purchase(s):
Port of Cairnryan Limited ("POCL") is the statutory harbour authority for the port of Cairnryan, located on the west coast of Scotland. The port has two operational berths which are both run for ferry services across the Irish Sea between Cairnryan and the Port of Larne. Berth 1 caters for the conventional Ro-Ro ferry service. The Berth 1 linkspan at Cairnryan is coming to the end of its operational life and as such POCL wish to replace it.
For the purpose of improving the facilities and for future proofing the operations at Berth 1, POCL are proposing to replace the existing linkspan at Berth 1 with a new double deck Ro-Ro linkspan which will be able to cater for a wider range of vessels with reduced maintenance requirements.
The Works were procured on the basis of a design and construct contract by competitive tender under the Utilities EU Directive based on the OJEU Negotiated Procedure.
The scope of the Works includes:
- the design, construction, testing and commissioning of the marine structures and services for the new realigned berth 1 linkspan,
- the design, fabrication, installation, testing and commissioning of the replacement linkspan,
- the design and the implementation of the dredging works,
- fulfilment of the Principal Contractor's duties under the Construction Design and Management Regulations.
The Works are to be undertaken so that they have no structural impact on the existing marine structures.
The main components of the Works include, but are not limited to:
- Land reclamation of approximately 40 000 cubic metres of fill with a rock armour revetment to provide a new approach to the replacement linkspan,
- Piled linkspan bankseat to support the shore-end of the new linkspan,
- Forward support/guide structures (as necessary) to linkspan,
- New double deck RoRo linkspan and approach structure (if necessary) to cater for a range of vessels with both upper and lower deck finger flaps,
- Protection to existing revetment (if necessary),
- Permanent berthing dolphins with fenders, including pile caps, bollards and walkways,
- A fendered nesting dolphin adjacent to the leading edge of the linkspan to cater for positive vessel berthing,
- Temporary berthing structures to provide a temporary berthing line and fendering following the switchover of the ferry services to the new linkspan during the construction of the permanent berthing dolphins,
- New single storey maintenance building,
- Mechanical and electrical works including shore side power and lighting to the new reclamation,
- Surfacing, fencing, barriers, signage and drainage to the new linkspan approach and standage area approximately 8 000 square metres on the new land reclamation,
- Dredging and disposal of approximately 35 000 cubic metres of seabed material. Much of the dredging shall be carried out in marine deposits with some within glacial deposits. The area of seabed to be dredged includes areas beneath the land reclamation, the new linkspan (dependent on type) and the berth pocket,
- Demolition and disposal of the existing linkspan, 2No linkspan forward support dolphins, 1No nesting dolphin, linkspan approach structure and vehicle approach ramp,
- Other minor works including shore side bollards, localised strengthening to the existing quay wall, new oil storage tank and other demolition works etc,
- Provision for the whole life cycle maintenance of the linkspan.
