Bord na Móna announced a permanent and complete cessation to all peat extraction on its land in 2021. Following that decision the company has a continuing significant road haulage requirement for its remaining bulk materials within its Peat and Horticulture businesses.
These materials currently include fuel peat, horticultural peat and various biomass materials, and are distributed to both internal and external customers. Bord na Móna’s peat production bogs are widely spread across the Midlands of Ireland, supplying 1 power station, 1 briquette factories and a number of horticultural growing media facilities by both road and an internal rail network. .
The vast majority of road deliveries are carried out using “walking floor” trailers, on the basis of receiving site restrictions.
Bord na Móna now wishes to invite suitably qualified transport companies to tender for the haulage of peat by road from and to multiple locations throughout the country.
This is the first of a two stage process – Stage 1 a PQQ (Prequalification Questionnaire) to determine if suppliers qualify and Stage 2 an ITT (Invitation to Tender) for qualified suppliers.
