French electrical network manager Enedis has started the tender process to find partners to deliver more than €16.5M (£14.8M) of geotechnical work over the next five years.
According to documents published in the Official Journal of the European Union, the work is split into eight packages varying in value from €0.3M (£0.27M) up to €7.9M (£7.1M).
The framework is due to start in March this year and will run until 2024 with no option for extension.
All eight packages have a national remit for geotechnical, hydrological and hydraulic studies at Enedis sites.
Bids for the work must be submitted by 23 January.
