Spain-Barcelona: IVVS Prototyping and Testing Activities
Modification of a contract/concession during its term
Section I: Contracting authority/entity
Section II: Object
IVVS Prototyping and Testing Activities
The main objective of this Task Order (TO#04) is to develop prototypes of the main IVVS subassemblies and test their performance in order to validate the design solutions presented at PDR. In a limited number of areas, design modifications are explicitly requested in order to incorporate improvements before prototyping.
Section V: Award of contract/concession
In Vessel Viewing System Prototyping and Testing Activities
Section VI: Complementary information
Within two months of notice of the award decision, you may launch an action for annulment of the award decision. Any request you may make and any reply from us, or any complaint for maladministration, will have neither the purpose nor the effect of suspending the time-limit for launching an action for annulment or to open a new period for launching an action for annulment. The body responsible for hearing annulment procedures is indicated in Section VI.4.1) of this contract notice. If you believe that there was maladministration, you may lodge a complaint to the European Ombudsman within two years of the date when you became aware of the facts on which the complaint is based (see http://www.ombudsman.europa.eu).
Section VII: Modifications to the contract/concession
The main objective of this Task Order is to develop prototypes of the main In Vessel Viewing System subassemblies and test their performance in order to validate the design solutions presented at Preliminary Design Review.
In a limited number of areas, design modifications are explicitly requested in order to incorporate improvements before prototyping.
The development of [D03] by Bertin, supported by discussions with the ITER Vacuum Group, concluded that the outgassing test setup proposed by Bertin to perform the outgassing measurements requested in WBS 02.01.01 will not allow to meet IO's expectations in terms of outgassing testing.
A new Thermal Outgassing Rig (TOR) must then be procured, based on the specifications of the one owned by the ITER Vacuum Group.
This new test rig, fully owned by F4E, will allow to carry out as many outgassing measurements as required by the development of the IVVS. In addition, it could also be made available to other programmes (e.g. Diagnostics, Antenna, etc.) who will have to demonstrate the compliance with vacuum of their in vessel components and systems. An agreement could also be established in the future in order to allow the IO to access and use our Outgassing Test Rig, under conditions still to be established.
The additional scope of work is needed for performance of the specific contract that is being implemented (see technical justification). Due to the full interoperability between the existing scope and the additional scope a change of contractor cannot be made without causing significant inconvenience and substantial duplication of costs.
