Port of Jersey: Re-tendering of the stevedoring license 2012.
Invitation for Expressions of Interest in the license to provide specific stevedoring services for the marine Ports of Jersey.
The port of Jersey is the sea port authority for the island of Jersey and its territorial waters. It runs commercial and passenger port operations, three marinas and also provides the coastguard services for its territorial waters. The main port, St Helier, handles Ro-Ro, Lo-Lo and passenger services, as well as liquid, dry bulk and general cargoes.
The present stevedore has decided to cease its stevedoring business activities and consequently the Port of Jersey is inviting expressions of interest to Tender for the granting of a Licence to provide stevedoring services on Jersey for a minimum period of five (5) years.
The licence for tender relates only to stevedoring services for the terminal(s)/berth(s) of the New North Quay and Elizabeth Harbour, for which area the licence will be exclusive. The licence also permits the stevedore to operate generally in other commercial areas of the port, but on a non exclusive basis. The stevedoring services will be provided during working hours which are appropriate to the port's commercial requirements.
The preference of the Port of Jersey is to issue a single stevedoring licence. However, the Port of Jersey will consider single licence options provided that the Port of Jersey is satisfied that the integrity of the stevedoring operation for all existing and future customers is guaranteed and that the Port will be operated both efficiently and effectively.
The licence will be provided on commercial terms and in accordance with best port working practices. The Licensee will, through commercial negotiation, have access to assets of the Port of Jersey for the provision of stevedoring services.
Expressions of interest are invited from organisations that can demonstrate their relevant experience and financial credibility.
The deadline for expressions of interest is Tuesday 22nd May 2012. Tender documentation will be issued by Friday 25th May 2012. The deadline for the receipt of formal tender proposals will be Friday 15th June. The License will be awarded by 13th July and will come into effect on Saturday 4th August 2012.
Expressions of interest should be accompanied by a fee of £150, payable to the Treasurer of the States of Jersey and sent to:
Paul Le Neveu
Harbour Operations & Compliance Manager
Port of Jersey
Maritime House
La Route Du Port Elizabeth
St Helier
