Moray Council is Seeking Services for Harbours

Moray Council logo

Moray Council has published a Prior Information Notice (PIN) for Bareboat Charter Hire of Vessel and Provision of Dredging Services and is seeking a supplier to hire the Selkie to dredge the region's harbours.

The Selkie is Scotland’s only local authority-owned dredger. It was acquired 5 years ago in a bid to cut down maintenance bills. However, since the purchase of the dredger, it has never achieved its 60-day annual targets for maintaining the region’s ports due to a number of issues.

The contract will not be divided into Lots. The initial duration of the contract will be three years, with the opportunity for renewal of an additional 1+1 year option after the initial three year term. Moray Council is using PCS-Tender to carry out this procurement process. Please note, PCS-Tender is a separate website from PCS. The application deadline date is 26 May 2021 at 12:00pm.
