The Procurement Partnership Limited (TPPL) has completed an OJEU tender on behalf and in conjunction with The Highland Council (THC) to establish a Dynamic Purchasing System (DPS) for Hydrogen generation and infrastructure. The DPS provides contracting authorities in the United Kingdom with access to a range of market leading suppliers for Hydrogen generation and infrastructure, in addition to ongoing supply of Hydrogen for the purpose of vehicle fuelling. The DPS is also scoped to include supply of Hydrogen for domestic and commercial services, in addition to Electric Vehicle charging infrastructure and the recycling and repurposing of Electric Vehicle batteries.
Hydrogen generation and fuelling infrastructure (both permanent and temporary) to include but not limited to; complete mobile refuelling vehicles and conversion to existing chassis, mini hydrogen dispensers, emergency back-up solutions, hydrogen generation, self-contained hydrogen refuelling units, on-site stored hydrogen containers with and without compressors to regenerate hydrogen supply and facilities to utilise hydrogen production by-products, hydrogen refuelling stations, and hydrogen production plants including regional hydrogen hubs. Infrastructure may be provided by suppliers on a ‘fully managed’ basis, i.e. the supplier provides the necessary infrastructure, production, storage, delivery, and supply on a full turnkey basis.
Ongoing supply of Hydrogen to include but not limited to; Grey, Blue, and Green hydrogen, and also hydrogen produced from nuclear (Pink) sources. Hydrogen may be supplied using mobile refuelling vehicles, refilling of on-site stored hydrogen containers, and charged supply of hydrogen to the end buying customer as a method of recovering the cost invested in the infrastructure.
Electric vehicle charging infrastructure for specialist and heavy goods vehicles, this may also include charging infrastructure for any other vehicle and body type required. Contracts may include site surveys, installation, ongoing support/maintenance (of the charging points and associated equipment), site safety works (e.g. markings, signage, equipment), technical consultancy/guidance, dynamic load management, provision of emergency back-up solutions, and behind the meter production and storage options. EV charging infrastructure may be provided by suppliers on a ‘fully managed’ basis, i.e. the supplier provides the necessary infrastructure on a full turnkey basis.
Recycling, and/or repurposing of electric vehicle batteries to include (but not limited to) all sizes and types of electric vehicle batteries. Recycling to include the disposal, disassembly, and recycling of precious metals, and other elements. Repurposing of batteries, to include any necessary refurbishment, for use in a variety of applications. Examples include energy storage (both domestic and commercial), mobile power units, storage to store energy at renewable production facilities (e.g. solar arrays), and emergency power storage (e.g. for use after natural disasters)
Ongoing supply of hydrogen to include but not limited to; Grey, Blue, and Green hydrogen, hydrogen produced from nuclear (Pink) sources, and hydrogen blended with natural gas. Hydrogen may be supplied into a closed/private network or grid, by using mobile refuelling vehicles, refilling of on-site stored hydrogen containers, and by any other means appropriate. Category may also include supply and installation of necessary infrastructure required to facilitate the supply of hydrogen to the network/grid.
This comprehensive DPS is available to Local Authorities and the wider public/not-for-profit sector including:
