Each year Energinet procures supplies, services and works for an estimated value of […].

As an independent public enterprise (SOV), owned by the Danish state, with the responsibility to operate and maintain the Danish electricity and gas transmission system for 400 kV, 150 kV and 132 kV, Energinet is obligated to adhere to the rules of the EU Utilities Directive. Consequently, all procurements which are above the threshold values (Tærskelværdier (kfst.dk)) must follow the procedure laid down in the directive. Procurements which are below the threshold values must adhere to the national legislation, including the Public Procurement Act (udbudsloven), section 4 and the Danish tendering act (Lov om indhentning af tilbud i bygge- og anlægssektoren).

Call for competition

In connection with procurements above the threshold values Energinet will most often publish a Contract notice from which relevant information concerning the tender can be obtained. The Contract notices are available at Tenders Electronic Daily (Place of performance (Map) - TED Tenders Electronic Daily (europa.eu)). The remaining Tender Documents will be made available at Energinets electronic tendering system, Mercell (EU-supply), at the same time as the Contract notice is made publicly available.

For certain procurements Energinet may chose to use a qualification system when making a call for competition. This may be either a qualification system established by Energinet or a qualifications system established by other contracting entities or bodies, e.g. Achilles (Achilles Utilities NCE, Supply Chain Management Community | Achilles).

Procurements below the threshold values will most often be published at  www.udbud.dk.
