Engineering Feasibility Studies
Radioactive Waste Management (RWM) is responsible for delivery of a geological disposal facility (GDF) and providing waste management solutions for higher activity waste (HAW). RWM is planning to undertake multi-disciplinary engineering feasibility studies. This invitation to tender is for the delivery of two engineering feasibility studies, relating to the aspects of the GDF.
The accessways that would be used to access the underground environment at the GDF, transfer waste packages underground. High heat generating waste (HHGW) disposal concept; the systems required for the handling, emplacement and backfill of HHGW, including engineered barriers, disposal vaults/tunnels, handling and emplacement systems and deployment of buffer and backfill (HHGW is used to describe all materials for which heat needs to be considered in the design of the disposal facilities, e.g. High level waste (HLW), spent fuel.).
Engineering Feasibility Study — Accessways
Engineering feasibility studies.
RWM has recently developed a preliminary disposal system development (DSD) process, which is based on a systems engineering approach with a repeatable set of steps at each stage of design development. The scope of work will be to follow the preliminary DSD process to develop a conceptual-stage design development.
The scope is to be divided as follows:
• Phase 1: Planning and stakeholder engagement;
• Phase 2: Conceptual design development and supporting technical studies.
