In 2017, the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy approved funding for the development of two subsurface scientific research facilities, to be delivered by the British Geological Survey for the Natural Environment Research Council (NERC). These first-of-their-kind research facilities will generate knowledge that will contribute to the responsible development of new low-carbon energy technologies both in the UK and internationally. One site in Glasgow is complete and construction of the Cheshire site is yet to commence and is the subject of this procurement activity. This PIN is for the Principal Contractor who will construct the UKGEOS Cheshire Observatory. The observatory is a research field site comprising a novel, highly instrumented borehole array, which will be used to undertake research into thermal storage and other related topics. This opportunity gives the Principal Contractor the opportunity to contribute to a highly unique and specialised project.
