It may be that one organisation would like to tender for both contracts. The SS Robin Trust is happy to consider this.

Tender 1. A "360 Degree Review" looking at possible options for the vessel.

The key objective is to identify business models for the SS Robin which are robust, medium to long term together with evidence of interest from potential operators. We think that the best way to achieve a viable future is to find a partner who will lease the hold, and possibly the pontoon.  This lease will then help pay for the long term upkeep of the ship and hopefully some heritage activities. We will also consider options which include the sale of the SS Robin. The focus is on financially secure partners with a robust business model for the SS Robin. 

A full brief is here.

Tender 2.A Technical Brief looking to work up some "Turnkey" technical solutions.

The objectives are firstly to enable the SS Robin Trust to know what options are technically and financially viable, and secondly to provide a potential operator/purchaser with sufficient initial information to feed into more detailed and specific work. In order to progress from general interest to serious commercial discussions, the SS Robin Trust requires 4 ‘turnkey’ technical options that can be presented to potential partners and costed to a rough order of magnitude.
