The cable car line will be approximately 3 kilometres long and will run from Järntorget in central Gothenburg through stations at Lindholmen and Lundby to Wieselgrensplatsen on Hisingen Island. The system will use a tri-cable construction to maximize wind stability and make it possible to operate the line even in strong winds. The line should have a capacity of at least 2,000 passengers per direction and hour, permit a frequency of at least one gondola per minute, and have a traveling speed of 18–25 kph.
A timetable for the project has not yet been drawn up, but the line should open for normal service in June 2021 to celebrate the 400-year jubilee of the City of Gothenburg.
This will be a ‘turnkey' (design and build) project combined with an extensive collaboration between the contracting parties, where the contractor will be involved at a very early stage.
The project will be divided into two major phases:
Tenderers will thus be required to demonstrate a high standard of competence in the construction of tri-cable systems as well as extensive experience with complex public works contracts and a good understanding of local conditions. We expect tenderers to have the ability and capacity to plan and build all parts of the cable car system.
In parallel with the procurement, the City of Gothenburg will hold an architectural competition to determine the overall design concept for the cable car system. Tenderers should therefore be prepared to execute a prescribed design concept.
This will be an open procurement procedure in accordance with the Swedish Utilities Procurement Act (2016:1146). Traffic & Public transport Authority plans to issue tender documents in April 2017.
The tender documents will be in Swedish. Certain parts will be translated into English for informational purposes.
Please note that the information in this pre-announcement notice is intended purely as an orientation and is not sufficient basis for the submission of tenders. The final conditions for the procurement will be presented in the tender documents.
