Overview

Background:
This procurement relates to the replacement of the existing Hobart Flight Dishwasher (Model FTN 2SB-DS7-C41) in the Kitchen located in the Food Services Building at the Christchurch Hospital Site. Nothing contained within this tender shall be seen as binding on us to proceed, as we currently do not have the formal approval of our Board for funding. Once we are ready to commit to a specific supplier, then a formal purchase order will be released and the terms contained within this RFP will become binding upon both parties. In the event that we are unable to proceed we shall not be liable to you for any costs associated with the submission of this Tender.

What we are buying and why:
The existing equipment has now reached the end of its operational life and frequent repairs are required, with spare parts becoming increasingly costly and difficult to source. The key outcome is to replace the existing system with one that is able to deal with the current washing volumes, while also having the capacity to deal with increased volumes in the future. The dishwasher needs to be easily dismantled and moved to a new kitchen location within the next 2-5 years.

What we require: the solution:
We are seeking a dishwashing solution that:
• Has variable wash programmes
• Can wash at least 5,190 plates per hour
• Provides ergonomically friendly system of stripping patient trays and loading into dishwasher
• Can be delivered, installed and commissioned by the supplier
• Is supported by NZ based technicians (preferably Christchurch based)

What we require: capacity:
We are seeking suppliers that are able to demonstrate the following capacity:
• Suitable installation staff numbers (or sub-contractors) to install equipment quickly and efficiently
• Dishwashing system capable of stripping washing dishes for maximum bed state numbers of Christchurch Hospital

What we require: capability:
We are seeking suppliers that are able to demonstrate the following capabilities:
• Experience installing equipment within a hospital setting
• Supply and installation of similar scale equipment
