This Week’s Highlight: Shipping Services

Shipping and maritime services are commonly outsourced by government departments due to the specialised nature of the vessels and crew skill sets. This week sees two requirements for marine transport services due just in the lead up to Christmas!

The first is a requirement from the Department of the Environment and Energy’s Australian Antarctic Division (AAD), based in Hobart, seeking a Supplier to provide Supplementary Shipping capability in support of of the Australian Antarctic Program. The expected charter period will be approximately 90 days to conduct multiple re-supply voyages between Hobart and Antarctica with an indicative start date of 30 November 2020. There is a possibility that charters can be extended up to 50 days but this will depend on the tendered capabilities. The RFT closing date is 23rd December 2019.

The second opportunity is for Vessel Charter – ATWS Sustainment Tasman Sea 2020 issued by the Bureau of Meteorology. This requirement is in support of the Australian Tsunami Warning System (ATWS), whereby the Bureau of Meteorology operates a network of monitoring stations at deep-ocean locations that detect and report potential tsunami events. Each station comprises an ocean-floor-mounted pressure sensor plus a moored surface buoy. The stations require regular equipment exchange to sustain operation, as such the Bureau requires the services of a suitably featured and crewed Vessel to undertake recovery and deployment of oceanographic equipment at two tsunami detection stations. These are located in the Tasman Sea, roughly 400 km west of the southern tip of New Zealand. The recovery and deployment is required during March 2020 on a date to be mutually agreed with the Contractor. This RFT closes on 23rd December 2019.
