17.2. Technical and professional capacity of Candidate:

(a) the candidate must have completed at least 2 projects of the same nature and complexity executed on lignite fired power plants with rated electrical output of at least 200 MW in the last 8 years (1.1.2011 – 19.4.2019). The portion of each project carried out by the candidate must be of at least 8 000 000,00 EUR as the prime contractor (i.e. not sub-contractor) covering the following categories:

— design, fabrication, delivery, installation and commissioning of new Electrostatic Precipitator (ESP) or the reconstruction/retrofit of the old ESP to meet the limits laid down in the Industrial Emission Directive (IED 2010/75EU),

— design, fabrication, delivery, installation and commissioning of DeNOx system erected into existing boiler units to meet the limits laid down in the Industrial Emission Directive (IED 2010/75EU),

— design, fabrication, delivery, installation and commissioning of the pneumatic ashhandling system on a coal-fired Power Plant.

A single project may cover one or more of the above mentioned categories, but all above mentioned categories have to be covered by such projects.

(b) if the application is submitted by a consortium the lead member should have completed at least one project as per requirement under 17.2.a. The consortium must satisfy the minimum selection criteria under 17.2.a as a whole.

The project the candidate refers to could have been started/implemented/completed at any time during the indicated period but it does not necessarily have to be started during that period, nor implemented during the entire period.

As proof of evidence a candidate shall provide, copies of the respective certificates of taking over/provisional acceptance/final acceptance/or performance certificate, signed by the Contracting Authority or employer or supervisor of the projects concerned.

The Contracting Authority reserves the right to ask further clarification from the candidate to check the accuracy and validity of the information submitted.

(c) a sole Candidate must carry out at least 60 % of the contract works by own resources, which means that it must have the equipment, materials, human and financial resources necessary to enable it to carry out that percentage of the contract;

(d) if it is a Lead member of a joint venture/consortium, it must have the ability to carry out at least 40 % of the contract works by its own means;

(e) if it is a partner of a joint venture/consortium (i.e. not the lead member) it must have the capacity to carry out at least 20 % of the contract works by its own means;

(f) A candidate must have in place and provide:

— Quality Management Certificate ISO 9001 or equivalent,

— Environmental Management Certificate ISO 14001:2014 or equivalent,

— Health and Safety certificate OHSAS 18001 or ISO 45001 or equivalent.

(g) Capacity-providing entities:

An economic operator may, where appropriate and for a particular contract, rely on the capacity of other entities, regardless of the legal nature of the links which it has with them.

Some examples of when it may not be considered appropriate by the Contracting Authority are when the tenderer relies mostly on the capacity of other entities or when it relies on key criteria. If the tenderer relies on other entities, it must prove to the Contracting Authority that it will have at its disposal the resources necessary to perform the contract, for example by producing a commitment on the part of those entities to place resources at its disposal. Such entities, for instance the parent company of the economic operator, must respect the same rules of eligibility and notably that of nationality, as the economic operator. Furthermore, the tender should include a separate document providing data on this third entity for the relevant selection criterion. Proof of capacity must be furnished at the request of the Contracting Authority.

With regard to technical and professional criteria, a tenderer may only rely on the capacities of other entities where the latter will perform the works for which these capacities are required.

With regard to economic and financial criteria, the entities upon whose capacity the tenderer relies, become jointly and severally liable for the performance of the contract.

Applications submitted by companies in partnerships forming a joint venture/consortium must also fulfil the following requirements:

— the application must include all the information required by the application form for each member of the joint venture/consortium and the summary data for execution of works by the tenderer,

— the application must be signed in a way that legally binds all members. One member must be appointed lead member and that appointment confirmed by submission of powers of attorney signed by legally empowered signatories representing all the individual members,

— all members of the joint venture/consortium are bound to remain in the joint venture/consortium for the whole execution period of the contract. See the declaration in the tender form,

If more than 6 eligible candidates meet the above selection criteria, the relative strengths and weaknesses of the applications of these candidates must be re-examined to identify the 6 best applications for the tender procedure. The factors which will be taken into consideration during this re-examination are:

— the highest number of reference projects accepted under criteria 17.2,

— the highest cumulative value of eligible projects under criteria 17.2 (in a case that several candidates have the same number of projects).

CONTRACT SPECIFICATIONS6.Description of the contract

The overall objective of the project is to improve air quality in Kosovo by reducing dust emission from 300/700 mg/Nm3 down to 20 mg/Nm3 and NOx emission from 700/850 mg/Nm3 down to 200 mg/Nm3 in line with the Directive on Large Combustion Plants (LCPD 2001/80/EC) and Industrial Emission Directive (IED 2010/75EU).

The project envisages the reduction of dust by modernising the existing Electrostatic Precipitators (ESPs) and the reduction of nitrogen oxides (NOx) by introducing a combination of combustion measures, so-called “primary measures” and selective non-catalytic reduction (SNCR) as a “secondary measure”.

The specific objective is to provide design, fabrication, delivery, dismantling of old equipment and installation of all necessary parts of the boiler unit as well as the system for reducing nitrogen oxide emissions, the ESP and the internal ash handling system.

This contract includes also works on civil structures, mechanical equipment, electrical and Instrumentation and Control systems (I&C) in order to put the whole system in smooth operation and prove the performance values of the boiler plant and nitrogen emission reduction facility and of the ESP.

The Works Contract comprises of, Phase 1 — TPP Kosovo B1 unit, and Phase 2 — TPP Kosovo B2 unit that will be carried out separately during the planned overhaul of the respective units (Unit B1 in 2020; Unit B2 in 2021).

NB: Phase 2 is subject of conclusion of a financing agreement under IPA 2019.

If the tenderer relies on other entities, it must prove to the Contracting Authority that it will have at its disposal the resources necessary to perform the contract, for example by producing a commitment on the part of those entities to place resources at its disposal. Such entities, for instance the parent company of the economic operator, must respect the same rules of eligibility and notably that of nationality, as the economic operator. Furthermore, the tender should include a separate document providing data on this third entity for the relevant selection criterion. Proof of capacity must be furnished at the request of the Contracting Authority.

The factors which will be taken into consideration during this re-examination are:

— the highest number of reference projects accepted under Criteria 17.2,

— the highest cumulative value of eligible projects under Criteria 17.2 (in a case that several Candidates have the same number of projects).

Critical tasks:
