Surface Water Quality Monitoring Solutions

Deadline: March 5, 2021 Issued by: Centre for the Development of Industrial Technology (CDTI)
Type: RFT Country: Spain Language: Spanish

The purpose of this contract is to develop solutions in the field of surface water quality monitoring. The aim is to contract innovative solutions, which do not exist on the market, that can solve the public needs detected by the Ministry of Ecological Transition and the Demographic Challenge (Directorate General for Water) and that can be validated in a pre-operational environment provided by the aforementioned Administration. The value of the R&D services must be the major part of the tender price. The following considerations should be taken into account when addressing this technological challenge:

  1. The system to be implemented should consist of innovative technologies that are in a laboratory-scale validation stage and are not on the market. Consequently, the proposed system cannot be based solely on a set of continuous measurement probes or sensors with technology already available on the market.
  2. The stations must have a reliability equivalent or superior to the Automatic warning stations (EAA) of the SAICA Network (the current network to monitor the quality) in the generation of alerts.
  3. The network will be designed with the objective of significantly reducing the current costs of the SAICA network, both in implementation and in operation and maintenance. The new instrumentation must be capable of measuring and/or estimating with high reliability and continuously the trends recorded for at least the following parameters at each control point: conductivity, pH, turbidity and dissolved oxygen.
  4. The equipment to be installed must generate early warnings, established for each measurement parameter considered and depending on whether or not certain alert and alarm threshold limits are exceeded.
  5. The equipment must send data in real time to the Basin Control Center (CCC) for processing, treatment, validation and storage. This information must be able to be integrated into the same data management system as that currently in place for the SAICA Network.
  6. The equipment must have its own autonomy, and must incorporate one or more sources of electrical power supply, as well as the possibility of storing the recorded data locally for three days so that, in the event of communications failure, the data will not be lost.
  7. The equipment must be adaptable in terms of the possibility of accepting particular variants, present or future, in its acquisition elements, measurement techniques, and formats accepted in relation to communications with the CCC.
  8. The implementation of elements and technologies should be aimed at minimising preventive and corrective maintenance work at the stations, in such a way as to enable a significant reduction in future maintenance costs in relation to the current EAA. In this respect, it is necessary that they incorporate self-cleaning systems, in order to ensure less human intervention and longer autonomy periods.
  9. Equipment should be capable of adapting to the particular circumstances of each monitoring station site.
  10. The support systems of the warning stations shall be stable against floods and other hydrometeorological circumstances, and have features that dissuade theft or damage due to vandalism of the system.
  11. It will be positively valued that the monitoring stations are able to measure or estimate indirectly also some of the following parameters: ammonium, phosphates, nitrates; level of water; panoramic photography of the control point and surface appearance of the water in the riverbed, in real time, absorbance to determine organic matter, chemical oxygen demand, water temperature, suspended solids and ambient temperature and
  12. The system is able to monitor not only the quality of natural waters, but also wastewater discharges.

Bicycle Lockers

Deadline: March 10, 2021 Issued by: Municipality of Clichy
Type: RFT Country: France Language: French

On 24 December 2019, the National Assembly approved the Mobility Orientation Law (LOM), one of the key measures of which is the implementation of an unprecedented National Bicycle Plan. Its objective is to triple the modal share of cycling by 2024 (from 3% to 9%). Today, there are still many obstacles to the use of bicycles: a feeling of road insecurity, objective insecurity, theft of bicycles, lack of parking space, appropriate facilities and bicycle services, etc. To encourage the adoption of this environmentally friendly mode of transport and make it competitive for commuting, solutions must be developed to combat theft, among other things. As part of its 2020-2026 Soft Mobility Plan and for the reasons set out above, the Municipality of Clichy wishes to generalise the provision of secure bicycle parking by installing several closed bicycle lockers. This would provide Clichy residents and workers with a comprehensive system of long-term bicycle parking. The latter would be able to come to their workplaces by bike and then park their bikes in the lockers all day long without worrying about the risk of theft and without obstructing street furniture that is not dedicated to this purpose. The locations of the lockers are defined as close as possible to old residential buildings, commercial lines and economic districts in places that are frequented, accessible and functional and will be transmitted to the contractor. The lockers must include a secure access, connected access system, door closing/opening device, access badges that can be encoded, bike racks (safe and practical, 3-point attachment of bikes possible) and LED lighting systems.

Air Emissions Inventory 2011-2019

Deadline: March 11, 2021 Issued by: Ministry of Finance
Type: RFP (Twinning Call) Country: Montenegro Language: English

The specific objective of the call is to build the capacity of Nature and Environmental Protection Agency of Montenegro (NEPA) for regular reporting on air emissions and emissions of greenhouse gasses (GHG) and to enable the sustainability of the national air emission and GHG inventory system [...] Currently, the capacities of NEPA Montenegro, national competent authority for the compilation of air emissions inventory, are not sufficient and a large part of software tools for inventory establishment and maintenance are missing. Without an extended capacity building for the development of necessary software tools and inventory maintenance, which will result in the production of air emission data for the period 2011-2019, it would be impossible for Montenegro to define its national emission reduction commitments and develop a national air pollution control programme as required by Directive (EU) 2016/2284. Tools developed and capacities improved will serve to maintain the air emission inventory in years to come and perform an integrated action with obligations related to reporting of greenhouse gas emissions. To that aim, it is necessary to update the emission data and recalculate existing inventories making it comparable with the base year (2005).

EASA received a mandate to develop an Environmental Labelling system for aviation. This contract will support the implementation of the pilot phase of the project with a focus on refining existing metrics and developing an approach towards life cycle assessments to underpin the labels for aircraft, airlines and flights. This project will provide solutions to allow easily accessible information on environmental performance in aviation to the travelling public and people living near airports. The project will develop the methodologies, fully in line with the taxonomy methodology the European Commission is currently developing- including the technical criteria, to assess the aircraft and airline operation externalities. The project will develop specific rules to measure the environmental footprint, and ways to communicate it. The main activities shall focus on developing notably the necessary metrics, governance, communication design and deliver input to the IT platform currently under development at the Agency. The overall objective is to increase awareness and transparency and ultimately support aviation actors to engage in a more sustainable path and passengers and other actors in making more sustainable choices by providing the travelling public with harmonised, reliable and easily understandable information on aviation’s environmental performance. The intention is to focus on environmental performance and how to improve it. The project will thus be implemented in line with the Commission’s European Green Deal initiative to combat ‘green washing’ by providing “reliable, comparable and verifiable information” which “plays an important part in enabling buyers to make more sustainable decisions and reduces the risk of ‘green washing’. The technical tasks to be undertaken are: 1) Aircraft technology environmental performance and labelling. The aircraft level label aims to provide transparency to passengers and general public on the performance of the aircraft and its engine on key environmental concerns, including level of emission per passenger. To achieve this, existing certification metrics on CO2 emissions, other engine emissions (in particular NOx and Particulate Matter) and Noise during the operational phase shall be assessed for usage in a life-cycle approach; and 2) Airline and flight environmental performance and labelling. The work conducted by the EASA Management Board Task Force 13has identified indicators such as CO2 emissions per passenger-kilometre (possibly broken by distance bands) as well as CO2 emissions per passenger per flight as meaningful information for citizens that would allow for intermodal comparisons.
