Section V: Summary of Requirements / Description of Work
Summary of Requirements / Description of Work: Ship chartering services. Following the issue of a Voluntary Transparency notice (VTN) This contract award notice is to notify the market that the Authority has awarded a contract to James Fisher Everard Limited on a Single Source Basis, for the charter of a vessel with the ability to collect fuel from a nominated Naval fuel Depot in the UK and transport it by sea to a specified UK deep-water port and then transfer the fuel directly to a large vessel undergoing sea trials. The charter shall take place during specific windows of opportunity during Autumn 2019.

This contract was placed using the Negotiated Procedure Without Prior Publication pursuant to Article 28(1)(e) of Directive 2009/81/EC (Regulation 16(1)(a)(ii) of the UK Defence and Security Public Contracts Regulations 2011. The Authority engaged with its Ship Broker (Braemar ACM Ltd) to understand vessels in the market that may be available to meet the very specific requirements. There are a very limited number of vessels in the market that meet the requirements and those that do are trading worldwide and therefore not practical for them to consider the restrictive timescales. This is further impacted by the requirement for a British Crew. Entire British crews are rare in the shipping world and are only required by the Authority. Therefore, the requirement for a full British crew for a short charter duration would require an owner substitute to his crew at short notice with British nationals which appears to be impractical. James Fisher Everard had a vessel that meets the requirement in all respects – in particular its size and the ability to provide a full British crew.
