    New Naval Equipment Purchases: Seen on Etenders.

    Decided it needed a thread of it's own, given how the Army one has become a zombie thread.


    Section 3. Specification of Requirements

    Boarding Ladder.
    3.1 The ladder is to be constructed from light weight, high strength material such as carbon fibre and it is to be of a pole type construction made up of three sections.

    3.2 The top section is to be approximately 2.4m in length and come complete with a grapel.

    3.3 The middle section is to be approximately 2.4m in length.

    3.4 The bottom section is to be approximately 1.2m in length.

    3.5 Overall length of the solid ladder with the three sections joint together must be 7m.

    3.6 The ladder should come with a stainless steel rope ladder which comes complete with a fitting attachment. This rope ladder should be capable of being attached to the bottom section and should be approximately 3m in length.

    3.7 The three sections and the rope ladder should be capable of being fitted together quickly and easily and should remain securely together once assembled.

    3.8 The unit should be supplied with a wooden/heavy duty plastic storage case.

    3.9 The Irish Naval Service intends to purchase two (2) boarding ladders in 2012. Additional ladders may be purchased under this tendering process in 2013 and 2014, however the Irish Naval Service are not obliged to do so.

    3.10 The two boarding ladders must be delivered no later than 29th October 2012.

    3.11 The boarding ladder will be utilised to gain access from an inflatable RHIB onto a vessel which has a higher freeboard. The use of a grapel is required so that the ladder may be secured to the other vessel and allows safe access. The steel rope ladder is to be secured to the bottom of the pole. This prevents the inflatable RHIB becoming damaged by the pole ladder and also prevents the RHIB from hitting the pole and dislodging the grapel.


    Why now?

    What do they intend on watching with a such a limited camera aray given ?

    Should have included a spec. to have the dome mount fitted with a heater to prevent fogging in the cases of condensation due to temperature changes.

    IP 66 doesn't not proof against condenstion.



    No IR required.

    How about low light capability?

    Well... you dont want to go bringing up the WRONG body now do you!
    "He is an enemy officer taken in battle and entitled to fair treatment."
    "No, sir. He's a sergeant, and they don't deserve no respect at all, sir. I should know. They're cunning and artful, if they're any good. I wouldn't mind if he was an officer, sir. But sergeants are clever."

    .....

    The spec includes. PTZ which means the cameras can pan tilt and zoom making them functionable and depending on the location aboard ship could be ideal for monitoring such things although the would have to be very high up to get over all the clutter around superstructure,

    The old dockyard crane, now non functioning is up for grabs.

    3.1 The successful tenderer will be required to arrange the removal of the crane from Haulbowline within an acceptable period (see 2.13 – tenderers must outline their proposals for the removal of the crane etc. from Haulbowline). The emphasis is on the removal of the crane as early as possible, in any event within 90 days after the signing of the sales agreement.
    3.2 The Department of Defence / Defence Forces will not provide any labour or materials necessary in connection with the removal of the crane.
    3.3 As already mentioned, the crane will be sold “as seen” and the Department of Defence cannot and will not accept any responsibility as to it’s quality, condition or certification. The crane shall be taken with all faults and errors or mis-statements of description, measurement, weight or otherwise, and without question on the part of the successful tenderer. No compensation or allowance will be made on account of any such faults, mis-statements or errors although the same may be of considerable nature.
    3.4 The successful tenderer will be required, as part of the sales contract, to indemnify the Minister against any liability arising from the subsequent use of the crane.
    3.5 The onus is clearly on tenderers to satisfy themselves as to what is offered for sale before submitting a tender. As already mentioned tenderers should inspect the crane prior to submitting a tender and should satisfy themselves of the maintenance status etc of the crane.
