INTRODUCTION AND CONTENT OF THE PRESENTATION• Definition of Turnkey Services• Why Turnkey Contracts for High Speed Railway?• The promotion of Consortia for the Provision of Turnkey High Speed Railway Services• The key points to deliver a successful High Speed Railway project• Case Study: The Haramain High Speed Railway Phase 2• The Kuwait Metro and Rail Project
Turnkey Services•Turnkey contract is a design and build contract in which a single contractor is responsible forproviding all services, including finance. (The New Dictionary of Civil Engineering. Penguin 2005 edition).In practical terms, the Client gets a service or a supply of goods ready to use, ready for theopening and ready to cut the “red tape” “at the turn of the key”.• Real Estate (construction of housing estates and retail parks)• Health Sector • Education Sector• Petrochemical Plants• Oil Refineries
USE OF TURNKEY CONTRACTS• Traditionally used for complex projects• Where experites relies with more than one contractor or company• Chemical plants, oil refineries or production lines in a factory are examples• Main Feature: Only one contractor: Prime Contractor Prime contractor holds all relationships with the Client Prime contractor holds all relationships with other contractors, subcontractors and suppliers to provide the Client with a finalised projectIn accordance with FIDIC (International Federation of Consulting Engineers)Recommended where one entity takes total responsibility for this type of contract, the entitycarries out all the Engineering, Procurement and Construction: providing a fully – equippedfacility, ready for operation (“at the turn of the key”). This type of contract is usually negotiatedbetween the parties.
ADVANTAGES OF TURNKEY CONTRACTS• The relationship is with one sole provider or prime contractor• The procurement process is quicker• The coordination of interfaces is done by the prime contractor• The scope of works and preparation of the contract is less detailed (concept design)• The responsibility of the delivery lies with the prime contractor• The contractor delivers in accordance to a set of performance criteria specified in the contract• In general it provides a fixed price so the risk of cost overruns lies with the prime contractor
WHY TURNKEY CONTRACTS FOR HIGH SPEED RAILWAY?The following activities form part of a High Speed Railway Service:• Feasibility and financial studies• Detailed design and preparation of bills of quantities• Civil Works and Infrastructure Works• Construction of tracks and systems Interlocking and Mainline signalling Electrification Operation Control Centre Overhead Catenary Telecommunications• Procurement and Delivery of Rolling Stock Trainsets• Verification, Testing and Acceptance• Operation of the Service (ticketing, drivers, passenger care…)• Maintenance of infrastructure, tracks and systems• Maintenance of rolling stock• Management of train stations
WHY TURNKEY CONTRACTS FOR HIGH SPEED RAILWAY?• Multi‐disciplinary: cannot be provided by a sole company• Complex activities, latest state of the art technologies• Risk with Contractor as owner of the technology• Definition of scope based on performance indicators• Payments subject to finalisation of key milestones (track laying, delivery of trainsets…)• Client gets infrastructure, track and systems and operation and maintenance service for a fixed price

KEY POINTS TO A SUCCESSFUL HIGH SPEED RAILWAY PROJECT• A Railway Administrator in charge of the construction, procurement of systems and maintenance of high speed railway lines. This can be a public body or a private entity working for the final client for a fee based on performance indicators.• A Railway Operator with a proven track record of providing high speed railway services. It can be a publicly owned company or a private operator as might be the case in different countries in Europe. • An Operation Control Centre from which the management and operation of train sets can be undertaken with safety as a first objective.• A state of the art signalling system (ERTMS Level 2) that allows for trains to travel at speeds of 300 km/h and above that caters for all types of train sets and makes the system interoperable• A track designed for speeds of 300 km/h and above, requirements and parameters for curves, gradients and gauges. Civil works often including viaducts and tunnels because of such strict design parameters, and therefore needing specialised companies in the construction of high speed railway lines• Train sets capable of performing at such speeds with the highest comfort and safety for the passenger• A Railway Integrator and coordinator that makes this puzzle of companies, service providers and systems work together as one
