Request for Tenders - Melton Pump Station and Parwan Pump Station
Congratulations to our three shortlisted tenderers
- Comdain Civil Constructions;
- Jaydo Construction; and
- Lendlease Services
and thank you for accepting our invitation to participate in this closed tender process.
As you are aware, the proposed contract is to be a design and construct lump sum contract based on AS4300 (as amended) and will generally involve the design, supply, construction, commissioning and performance proving of the Melton pump station and the Parwan pump station.
The Melton PS will transfer recycled water from the Melton RWP storages to the head of the proposed Parwan-Balliang Irrigation District (PBID), and the Parwan PS will supply recycled water into the PBID system for irrigation by neighbouring customers.
All materials supplied and installed by the contract must be in accordance with Western Water's approved pipe products as set out in the MRWA web portal or approved by Western Water if product type is not covered by the MRWA portal.
Please note that this RFT process is being opened earlier than planned, and prior to finalisation of functional design information, to enable tenderers to be provided with draft functional design documents for early consideration. Currently available information is provided and will be updated intermittently until final release of all RFT documentation.
The Closing Time remains unchanged (18 December) and final RFT documentation will be provided at the end of October.
Questions during the RFT period (until end of the period for questions) are to be directed via the Buying for Victoria website.
