II.1.4)Short description:

This prior information notice is an announcement of an intended Call for tenders regarding technical expert services by the contracting authority SÄTEILYTURVAKESKUS, The Radiation and Nuclear Safety Authority of Finland. The object of the procurement is related to the authority's responsibility to review seismic hazards in Finnish nuclear power plants and, in particular to a current project by the authority, ‘SENSEI’ concerning sensitivity of seismic hazard predictions. The procurement is intended to be a framework agreement divided into (3) lots. The estimated amount that might be procured is 18:00-20:00 hours of expert services, calculated for the envisaged three lots and over a planned two-and-half-year contractual term in total. The Call for tenders is envisaged to be launched by the end of the year 2016.

II.2.4)Description of the procurement:

The service provision of the lot no. 2 (Lot 2) shall concentrate on synthesizing the information from PSHA studies on studying parameters used in PSHAs, such as activity rates, seismic zoning, maximum magnitude, attenuation parameters, etc. These input parameters shall be scrutinized in light of the previous PSHA studies in Finland and the seismicity of the region. Once the sensitivity of the PSHA parametric modelling is available, Lot 2 experts will reevaluate the credibility of the input parameter ranges in light of these results, making suggestions for future refinement/extension of the parameter ranges.
