The evaluation report is expected nowadays to be prepared by the Turkish Electricity Transmission Corporation (TEIAS) and forwarded to the World Bank for the tender of the international Day-Ahead Market Trading System and Reconciliation System Procurement and Implementation Project, which is covered by the National Transmission System Project II and is the highest amount of investment item of the loan package of USD 66 million procured from the World Bank.
TEIAS, which has targeted to sign the tender contract before 2008 ends according to the work schedule prepared for the tender whose bids were received on July 16, 2008, will nowadays prepare the evaluation report. The report to be prepared for the project, whose evaluation works have been intensified as of the second half of December, will firstly submitted to the World Bank for approval. TEIAS will also resort to the approval of the Executive Board for finalization of the report and conclusion of the tender.
Areva+Havelsan had submitted the lowest bid of € 2.4 million for the tender on the basis of bid opening session prices read out by the Commission, and that the second lowest bidder was Spanish Atos Orgin SA with its bid of € 2.9 million. In the same news story of us, we reported that Siemens and ABB among the leading companies of the sector had participated in the tender, and that Indra System SA had also submitted bids for the tender.
Although the Tender Commission targets to finalize the tender in October, the activities lagged behind the work schedule prepared for the project since the evaluation works took longer than expected, and a delay was experienced in the contract envisaged to be signed in 2008. Areva+Havelsan, which submitted the lowest bid according to the prices read out by the Commission, has still a chance
Sources close to the subject reported that Areva+Havelsan, which had submitted the lowest bid of € 2,378,400 on the basis of bid opening session prices read out by the Commission, had still a chance. Stating that Areva worked on MMS also in other countries, the same sources pointed out that the tender result would be clarified through the Commission Report to be prepared.
