Section II: Object
Framework Service Contract Related to the Maintenance of Measurement Equipment for Spent Nuclear Fuel (Fork Detectors) and Under Water Coincidence Counter (UWCC) Detectors (for Fresh)
To fulfill its responsibilities under Chapter VII of the EURATOM Treaty, the European Commission uses measurement equipment to verify nuclear fuel under water as part of its inspection activities. Specific instruments devised for that purpose are the so called fork detectors (for spent fuel) and similar Under Water Coincidence Counter (UWCC) detectors (for fresh MOX fuel). The commission inspectors use fork and UWCC detector systems in nuclear installations across the European Union. In order to implement and assure the continued reliable operation of the instruments, it is intended to establish a framework service contract for the maintenance of these detectors.
The European Commission owns a total of 29 units of the fork detector system (for spent fuel verification) and 5 UWCC units (for fresh MOX verification) that were purchased from 2 suppliers:
Studiencentrum voor Kernenergie — Centre d'Étude de l'Énergie Nucléaire (SCK-CEN), Mol, BELGIUM.
A.N. Technology Ltd, Wallingford-Oxfordshire, UK (ANTECH).
The tenderer will be required to carry out the following of work:
— functional detector tests,
— storage of complete fork and/or UWCC detector systems,
— decontamination of a fork and/or UWCC detector system,
— ad hoc maintenance services.
