Procurement of Client controlled construction insurance (CAR/TPL)
The Swedish Transport Administration has decided to sign a client controlled insurance for the Varberg tunnel project, covering the years 2019-2026. The Client controlled insurance covers a contractor's all-risk (CAR, Contractors all risk) and third party liability (TPL, Third party liability) insurance for project-related construction activities.
The insurance means that the ECI-contractor and its subcontractors within the project are co-insured during the construction phase.

Procurement of services
In the Varberg tunnel project we need to extend our organization before the start of the design and planning phase in the summer of 2018, but also for the coming production phase 2019-2025. Preparatory work is ongoing with the exchange of signal interlocking system, dismantling of platform ceilings at the Varberg railway station and re-routing of pipes. For these preparatory work, we have mainly procured personnel in construction engineering, such as sub-project managers and construction managers.
At present, we expect to be around 30-35 people in our organization in Varberg in the autumn of 2018. We have expertise in tunnels, rock, ground, concrete construction, pipelines and railways (BEST). In addition, we need to further strengthen our organization with project engineers, specialists and staff functions. In June 2018, we are planning for our ECI contractor to start the design work. Prior to the start of construction in 2019, there will be additional needs to strengthen the project organization with sub-project managers, specialists and construction managers.
The contract is a design and build contract with a high level of co-operation through the application of the Swedish Transport Administration's guidelines for ECI-contract (Early Contractor Involvement). Co-operation according to the Swedish Transport Administration's model is a structured co-operative approach between the parties designed to optimally, cost-effectively and time-efficiently prepare and implement the contract, thereby contributing to meeting the business objectives of the parties.
The model means that a joint collaborative organization is formed in which clients, contractors and leading sub-contractors are involved, and a collaborative management team is formed. The collaborative organization is placed in a joint office in connection to the construction site.
The procurement of services is progressively and advertised on Trafikverket's website under current procurements and in Trafikverket's procurement plan. Tender applications are made through Trafikverket's procurement system (CTM).
