Ports of Jersey is holding two Industry Days later this month, one in Jersey and a second in London. The events are being held to allow potential contractors to find out more about the work required for the redevelopment of Elizabeth Harbour, which is being reconfigured as part of the St Helier Harbour Master Plan.
The Industry Days are also aiming to stimulate interest within the market and enable the industry to mobilise before the procurement; to encourage early cross-supply chain dialogue and collaboration in the development of solutions; and to obtain market feedback on key elements of the project.
A Prior Information Notice - which signals upcoming work to external suppliers - was published in November 2022.
Ports of Jersey’s Harbour Master, Captain Bill Sadler, said: “I am pleased to see that we are taking the next step in the procurement process for this important project for Jersey. It is essential that we secure the right suppliers to reconfigure Elizabeth Harbour, which will bring together the crane and trailer operations into one, consolidated freight area.
“This redevelopment requires specialist marine skills, which is why we are inviting contractors from both within Jersey and beyond, to ensure we can secure the right supplier.”
The Elizabeth Terminal building will also be replaced, to allow for the increase in freight capacity, and to improve passenger journeys for both Islanders and visitors.
The two Industry Days are in Jersey on 27 January and in London on 31 January. They will enable a wide selection of companies to find out more about the project so they can decide whether they want to formally bid for the contract.
Any organisations who have not yet expressed an interest in this procurement, and would like to ask to attend the industry days, please register via Ports of Jersey’s eProcurement portal, Proactis.
Before developing detailed plans, a public consultation asked Islanders to give their views on potential uses for the harbour area. The responses have been collated and a report will be published later this month. This feedback will help to refine the proposals for Elizabeth Harbour before a planning application is submitted.
