February 28 (Renewables Now) - Swedish state-owned utility Vattenfall AB has launched a competitive process through which to select solar module suppliers for future projects in Denmark, Sweden, Germany, the Netherlands, the UK and possibly other countries where it might decide to build solar farms.

The deadline for receipt of tenders or requests to participate is March 28. The company wants to enter into a framework agreement with no more than six parties, while total of eight will be invited to join the bidding phase, it said in its notice in the EU’s Tenders Electronic Daily (TED).

Vattenfall wants to enter into an agreement with a European Legal entity, which will be responsible for the logistics, warranties and invoicing, among other tasks. The suppliers need to have at least one warehouse in Europe from which to ship the photovoltaic (PV) products to the project site. ISO 9001 and OHSAS 18001/ISO45001 or equivalent certifications are a must.
