KUWAIT CITY, May 30: The Central Agency for Public Tenders (CAPT) has approved the Kuwait Oil Company (KOC)’s request to award a tender worth KD 34.911 million for support services for workshops to ABG Engineering and Contracting Company, which presented the lowest bid in accordance with the terms and prices, after completing and correcting calculation errors. The agency asked the bidders to extend the initial warranty for all companies participating in the tender, reports Al-Rai daily.
According to informed sources, CAPT agreed to KOC’s request to extend the initial warranty for the companies participating in the tender for services, cleaning and related works in the southern and eastern regions of Kuwait for a period of three months, with the authority’s urgency to raise a recommendation for awarding the tender and to request the bidders to extend the initial insurance.
CAPT requested the bidders participating in the tender to replace the current high-pressure smoke flare (HP) and low pressure (LP) with smokeless burners in the assembly centers in northern Kuwait, to extend the initial warranty, and extend the initial warranty for the participants in the tender to provide comprehensive maintenance services and operational support for facilities production in the western regions of Kuwait.
CAPT postponed a decision on the request of KOC to confiscate the initial warranty for Al-Meer Technical Services Company in the tender to provide maintenance services for the marine fleet for marine operations, due to the company’s refusal to re-work an appraisal budget.
It also rejected KOC’s request to issue the first change order with an increase of KD 2.67 million, equivalent to 17.41 percent of the value of the tender contract for monitoring, inspecting and operating fuel line networks and booster stations concluded with the Integrated Services Company for Mechanical Contracting and Precision Instruments.
CAPT refused to extend the contract for a period of one year from April 30, 2023 to April 30, 2024, provided that the first six months are continuous and the remaining months are on a month-by-month basis. The rejection is due to the increase in the value of the change order and the extension period.
CAPT agreed to KOC’s request to complete the deficiencies in the companies participating in the tender for the replacement of the compressed air system for precision machinery and the air system for the facility in the assembly centers in southern Kuwait with the two companies “Egyptian Maintenance Company” and “FENESCO International Company for General Trading and Contracting”.
