Response deadline:  03-04-2020 12:00   Irish time
Procedure: Iarnród Éireann - Non OJEU Negotiated Procedure (Electronic)
Description: As part of Iarnród Éireann’s commitment to reducing its carbon footprint and contributing towards environmental sustainability for Ireland, we are seeking expressions of interest from suitably qualified independent specialist technical advisors to assist in a key engineering project relating to our existing fleet of Intercity Railcars. The project will see a number of new Euro Stage V, EU Directive 2016/1628/EU, MTU Powerpacks being retrofitted into the existing fleet of Intercity Railcars. In addition, the project will also see the retrofit and trial of three Hybrid Powerpacks in 2021. Both of these projects will result in a cleaner and greener passenger service which will not only reduce fuel consumption but will also reduce emissions considerably. The successful tenderer will provide independent technical advice and support during the design phase which will extend to the following; CAD drawing services; Validation of engineering designs (FEA, FEM etc.); Noise, vibration, torsional and modal analysis; Standards verification and approvals (TSI, EN, GM/RT etc.) The contract will commence in Q2 of 2020 and will continue throughout the acceptance and commissioning process during 2021.
