Section II: Object
Market for the realisation of the main civil engineering of a pair of EPR2 type power generation units in France
Completion of the main civil engineering of the works and buildings on site, the purpose of which is, in particular, to:
— earthworks (excavations, backfill) and demolition of existing structures,
— the construction of reinforced concrete structures, in special concrete concrete, prestressed concrete,
— the construction of all technical installations,
— erection of metal and cladding frames,
— Manufacture of metallic coatings in black and stainless steel,
— the study, manufacture and installation of ordinary and fire doors,
— the carrying out of studies on metal structures (calculation notes and plans),
— studies of excavations, roof supports and backfill,
— the study and construction of the ‘operational hub’ building,
On the basis of the following data and specifications provided by EDF:
— digital plans or layouts,
— technical specifications of the operational centre building.
The pair of power generating modules of type EPR2 will be located on one of the nuclear sites in operation in France.
Brief description of the works:
The contract consists of the construction of the main buildings of 2 units EPR2 on the same site.
For each tranche, the same buildings are to be built, divided into several blocks: nuclear island (NI: steam production), conventional island (CI: electricity generation and energy disposal) and Balance of Plant (BOP: cold source, technical galleries, site buildings).
Some buildings are common to all 2 tranches, including: the nuclear island effluent treatment building and the operational centre of operation (offices and workshops).
Certain works necessary for the operation or operation of the 2 instalments do not form part of the market: tunnels for the discharge of cooling water in the sea (in the case of a sea edge site), and certain tertiary or service buildings, which are furthest away from the factory block.
The total volume of concrete of the buildings included in the contract is in the order of 800 000 m.32.
State body included in the contract.
The market comprises the following main State bodies:
— site installations,
— excavations and backfills,
— reinforced and pretensioned concrete (the reactor building containment chamber is prestressing),
— metal frame and cladding of the engine room,
Metallic steel covering of the confinement facility of the containment body,
— stainless steel cladding of the reactor building’s swimming pools and the fuel building,
— ordinary and fire doors,
— handling of miscellaneous equipment, including consignments imprisoned for third parties: these are equipment, not including the supply of the market, which need to be set aside (for example: interchanges, pumps, etc.). This equipment is in prison because they will be introduced before civil engineering ends, as they are too large to pass through the final doors/openings,
— different inserts in the concrete of the structures (anchor plates, sleeves, etc.),
— certain temporary or definitive GERD.
Studies, manufacture and installation of electromechanical equipment (except in exceptional cases such as elevators) are excluded from the market.
They are, for the most part, supplied to the contractor by EDF; they shall take account of the methods of implementation previously supplied by the Contractor,
— the performance studies remaining at the Contractor’s expense are the studies for earthworks and roof supports, the studies of the metal frame and the cladding of the engine room.
Building in design.
The building called the operational centre of operation will be carried out by the holder in design of all the State Corps, on the basis of a set of specifications provided by EDF.
A technical description of the services is available on the French electricity purchasing platform via the request for information n.o RFx_076323.
