Ukrainian energy suppliers need a constant inflow of spare parts and technical energy supplies of all kinds. Currently, main challenges with the procurement of energy system items are long production times, especially for transformers (partly more than 12 months in the high voltage range) and gaps in compatibility due to different Ukrainian and international grid standards.
GIZ carries out several support measures for the Ukrainian energy sector in the framework of the Federal Government’s Ukraine Winter Aid on behalf of the Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Climate Action (BMWK). The German-Ukrainian Energy Partnership (EP) is the central platform for coordinating cooperation with industry and associations for the procurement campaign, frequently involving companies and associations of the energy industry in information and networking events.
We therefore thank interested bidders for their understanding of very short deadlines in the procurement process and for their support in the efficient processing of orders during production phase and delivery.
A prioritization by suppliers in manufacturing and delivering orders is well-appreciated to swiftly restore Ukraine’s energy infrastructure.
Below you find frequent updates on Tender Notifications by GIZ for the purchase of various technical energy goods for Ukraine. Those goods are intended for the restoration of the Ukrainian power system and are handed over as German emergency aid to Ukrainian partners.
Procurement procedures and imports of energy products into Ukraine have been simplified in line with the humanitarian emergency in Ukraine.
To facilitate the submission of offers, GIZ processes queries to receiving beneficiaries (UkrEnergo or other energy services in Ukraine) by interested bidders on the compatibility of offered products with the required product descriptions and performance standards. On a case-by-case basis, individual products with different standardizations or performance data may be operable in Ukrainian grid systems.
Tenders may be submitted by lot (per item) and a gradual delivery of goods in badges by sequence of production is possible. Advance payments can be made by GIZ according to credit criteria to supplier companies which have been awarded the contract.
