      EASTERN UPPER PENINSULA
      TRANSPORTATION AUTHORITY
      REQUEST FOR QUALIFICATIONS
      FOR NAVAL ENGINEERING SERVICES
      FOR THE DESIGN OF A DOUBLE-ENDED CAR FERRY

      The Eastern Upper Peninsula Transportation Authority (hereafter referred to as the “agency”) is a two-county public transit system providing rural bus service in Chippewa and Luce Counties in Michigan’s Eastern Upper Peninsula. The agency also provides car and ferry/passenger service to Sugar, Neebish, and Drummond Islands in the St. Mary’s River utilizing four ferry vessels and eight docking facilities. Approximately 500,000 vehicles and 800,000 passengers are transported to and from the three islands annually.

      The Sugar Island Ferry has a crew onboard 24 hours per day and maintains a schedule of running two round trips per hour. The distance to the island from the city of Sault Ste. Marie on the mainland is ¼ mile. The crossing is approximately one mile downstream from the Soo Locks. Commercial and domestic vessel traffic can be heavy. Extreme conditions in regard to current, wind fog, snow and ice can be encountered. The ferry transports approximately 270,000 vehicles per year.

      The Sugar Island ferry in service is challenged when transporting heavy vehicles, such as gravel/asphalt trucks, and by the large volume of daily passenger vehicles.

      The agency is seeking qualifications for naval architect services to produce technological documents including architectural plans for a new double-ended ferry vessel better suited to provide service to Sugar Island.

      Copies of the RFQ are available on the agency’s website: www.eupta.net under the “resources” tab or contact the agency’s office @ 906-632-2898 for a copy to be e-mailed, mailed or faxed. Qualifications are due June 5, 2015 by 4:00 p.m.
