1- Decommissioning Salvage Operations (Yarmouth)

2- Fitting of the Elephants Feet (Southampton Dock)

3-  Seabed Survey (Yarmouth)

QED Naval Limited is, through the EU Interreg TIGER project, testing and proving the capabilities of its Community Demonstrator Subhub unit followed by the design, development and fabrication of its Industrial Demonstrator Subhub, which will generate approximately one megawatt of electricity. QED’s road map is to develop at utility-scale and sees this progression as critical in developing its technological capabilities and business plan.

Critical to its development as a business is ensuring it attracts and secures the services of long-term strategic partners who can help deliver QED’s sizable supply chain and project pipeline for the long-term as well as deliver these initial steps and develop projects. This tender is a call for a strategic partner and long-term investment, forming a large and critical part of our tender selection process.

As well as delivering the TIGER project and work outlined in this specification, QED is looking for an appropriate cultural and development ‘fit’ from tenderers that will help scale, deliver the supply chain, drive its LCOE long-term and be a strategic partner and investor for the future.
