We asked for all questions to be sent in by the 8th July and we would respond by the 15th. Please see the following document for the questions and supporting data where appropriate.
Bioresources questions from email and webinar – updated 27.7.22
We then ask for interested parties to submit their proposals by 29th July (11.59pm) – please email them to firstname.lastname@example.org. A maximum of 8 pages is requested as we are expecting a high level of interest in this challenge and want to be able to review all submissions.
While hosted by Wessex Water, the above is a joint email address that will notify both Wessex Water and Severn Trent Water of any submissions.
Submissions should include, where available:
- Summary of the solution proposed
- High-level overview of capabilities
- Benefits offered
- Requirements for use
- Case studies of any UK/worldwide installations
- Your expertise in this area
We look forward to hearing from you!
We will review all the submissions and see if there are any we would like to discuss and explore further, and feed back to companies accordingly. This will include whether we wish to continue conversations, or if not, feedback on the reasons for not taking the proposal any further.
We will aim to come back to all parties with initial feedback within 2 months, but if these timescales change due to the number of submissions received, we will let parties know within 2 weeks of the submission deadline.
We also intend to feed back more generally on the challenge via our blog page.
If you want to hear about other Wessex Water Marketplace challenges over a range of areas when they are released you can sign up to our mailing list.
Taking part in this Marketplace challenge does not guarantee a contract. This is the first step in what will be a process that we cannot fully scope at this point as we are unsure of the market interest.
The intention is not for market participants to invest significant time and resource into these proposals – it is aiming to be a high-level review on both sides to avoid significant abortive work, and has been designed with this in mind.
Submissions are also high level to avoid significant intellectual property being shared at this stage.
A tender may be required to progress proposals of interest further, and Wessex Water and Severn Trent Water reserve the right to stop the project at any time.
Please note that all information will be shared between both Wessex Water and Severn Trent for this challenge.
Thank you very much and we look forward to hearing from you!
