Results of the procurement procedure
Section I: Contracting authority
Section II: Object
Engineering Services in the Area of Remote Handling
The scope of the services is related to engineering and prototyping (manufacturing) activities foreseen to be implemented over the duration of the framework contract to support the development of the various ITER remote handling systems related to the European in-kind procurement. When ITER is not in operation, specific maintenance activities are performed by remote handling systems that are able to cope with the ITER environmental conditions, in particular radiation due to nuclear activation.
The tasks under the framework contract are mainly foreseen to be performed at the contractor's premises.
The list below gives an indication of the type of tasks that can be asked to be performed under this framework contract.
Each specific contract shall specify what tasks are required to be performed by the supplier.
A. Evaluation of remote handling design concepts and solutions including but not limited to the following:
— field equipment including sensor systems, hydraulic and electromechanical actuators, viewing systems, optical systems, metrology systems, cabling and connectors, control systems, etc.;
— feasibility, reliability, availability, remote maintenance, decontamination, inspectability, operability and safety assessment,
— verification of Protection Important Components (definition of PIC related verification activities are in (AD-02) of Annex A to the framework contract),
— evaluation of requirements management and verification activities;
B. Review or production of technical documentation for remote handling systems and components including but not limited to the following:
— CAD models, drawings and schematics, technical specifications, safety evaluations, manufacturing sheets, calculations, analysis reports (operational, risk, integrated logistics or safety and hazard analysis), finite element analyses, etc.,
— review meetings,
— on-site inspections at the ITER site or supplier premises;
C. Execution of support activities including but not limited to the following:
— studies related to design, manufacturing or assembly of remote handling equipment (as described in point a above) and their respective rescue systems, complemented by tests on procured mock-ups and/or components;
— studies, development, integration and validation of software and hardware components of the remote handling control system
— assessment/qualification within the nuclear engineering field of radiation tolerance of components, materials and systems related to confinement of, and shielding from radioactive sources.
The ITER project.
