ABOUT THE PROJECT
POSIDON PCP gathers 5 European procurers facing a common challenge in the sites they manage, affected by analogous pollutants - 2 front runners: Port Network Authority of the Eastern Adriatic Sea Port Of Trieste (IT) and Bilbao City Council (ES) and 3 observers: Spaque (BE), CEA – Vitoria Gasteiz City Council (ES), Baja do Tejo (PT) - leveraging public demand to identify fit-for-purpose and cost- effective innovative and sustainable solutions to soil decontamination.
A series of Open Market Consultation (OMC) will be organized before the publication of the Invitation to Tender in order to improve the mutual understanding between the POSIDON procurers’ groups and the industry.
The procurers’ group will cross-check the need detected within the project with the state-of-the-art of industrial development.
CALL FOR TENDER
On 02/01/2019 the Contract Notice of the Call for tender of POSIDON PCP project has been published in the European Tenders Electronic Daily (Document number 743-2019). The aim of this procurement is to trigger new solutions, preferred as in-situ (and potentially on-site), to be capable of decontaminating both organic and inorganic contaminants in heterogeneous anthropic soils in brownfield, composed by a mixture of industrial wastes (like filling soils, construction & demolition wastes, slags, and ashes polluted by petroleum hydrocarbons and lead) and soils consisting of clays and sands, mainly polluted by heavy fractions of petroleum hydrocarbons, PAHs and lead.
08/06/2020 Posidon PCP phase 2 started (at last)!
After two months of halt of activities due to the COVID19 global health emergency which hit Europe as well as the rest of the world, POSIDON PCP phase 2 could finally start.
The slow recovery of economic activities over recent weeks in all the European countries involved in the project enabled the 4 contractors selected at the end of March 2020, to set out prototype.
In the coming months, selected contractors will compete operations, developing in parallel 4 different solutions.
If you are a EU procurer interested in observing prototyping results and upcoming phase 3experimentations, then join the POSIDON Think Factory!
