Sacyr, Farrans, Neopul JV awarded contract to design, build and operate Edinburgh Tram extension to Newhaven

EiB’s Strategic Work Winning Team, led by Director Richard Roddie, supported the Sacyr, Farrans, Neopul Joint Venture (SFNJV) in developing their bid to secure the £90 million design, build and operate contract for the 4.6km Edinburgh tram extension to Newhaven. Our support included developing the bid strategy; initial storyboarding of the question responses; review and challenge of responses and final editing and improvement to help produce a winning tender.

SFNJV Project Director Alejandro Mendoza Monfort said: “Our teams have worked meticulously through the tender process set out by the council and we now look forward to a positive outcome at the business case review by councillors on 14 March. SFNJV will bring wide-ranging experience between the three companies to the project into one team, we have a great combination of international and local experience of large scale civil engineering projects”.

The extension to Newhaven could see the number of passengers increase dramatically to 14 million a year. This is good news for the City of Edinburgh Council, with figures from the end of 2018 showing 7.3 million people travelled on trams in Edinburgh over the year, representing a 10% increase from 2017. The planned extension will also continue to boost profit made from the tram system, which in 2017 reported profits of £1.6m, up from £252,000 in 2016. 

EiB Work Winning Director Richard Roddie said: “It was a pleasure to lead our bid team in supporting this international JV through this challenging tender and am pleased our collaborative approach has delivered a successful outcome for all involved”
