II.2.4)Description of the procurement:

Requirement

UKAEA is developing a Hydrogen 3 Advanced Technology: H3AT facility. The System Integrator is expected to take responsibility for the integration of the plant design, design of control systems for the integrated plant, integration of the sub-systems for the plant and, for inactive commissioning and handover of the integrated plant together with training of the Client’s operational staff, to be delivered in accordance with the UK Governments “Soft Landings” approach.

Background to Requirement

UKAEA is to developing Hydrogen 3 Advanced Technology: H3AT facility, opening in 2021. The heart of the H3AT facility will be a fusion relevant 100g tritium processing loop comprising storage beds, a distribution system, impurity processing system, isotope separation system and systems to detritiate water and air. These will service a flexible suite of enclosures and glove boxes to allow a broad range of tests and experiments. The facility will also contain a dedicated area to develop materials detritiation processes.

The purpose of the H3AT facility is to support development of new technologies for tritium handling and the simulation of operation of tritium plant fusion reactors. The integrated systems design for the scaled tritium processing plant is the basis for the requirement and is the subject of this PQQ and the resulting Invitation to Tender: ITT.

Description of the Procurement Process

The Innovation Partnership process: INP will be established in successive phases aiming at the development and subsequent purchase of services and/or works/supplies to deliver the H3AT facility to agreed performance levels and costs.

This procurement is likely to be a multi-stage event under the INP procedure. The initial element of the process includes awarding multiple concept design contracts to provide proof of concept’s designs proposed. Subsequent to the concept design stage, we will either extend the initial design contracts for further iterations of more detailed designs or will award a Professional Service Contract (PSC) for the System Integrator. This PSC will be for the system’s design at the plant level, system’s integration of the plant including their interfaces and performance, design and supply of the integrated control system for the plant operation.
