Short description:
The UK Atomic Energy Authority (UKAEA) is starting a market engagement process to engage with potential prime contractors and sub-assembly manufacturers of a new Hydrogen-3 Advanced Technology Facility (H3AT).

The H3AT Facility objectives are:

— supporting delivery of fusion as a commercial power source,

— promoting industry, academia and research companies for work related to handling tritium and other radioactive isotopes,

— providing capability for training of next generation of scientists and engineers for development of new power sources.

The main field of H3AT activity is processing tritium containing gaseous and liquid mixtures. The key process systems include:

— Storage and Delivery System,

— Hydrogen chemical Purification System,

— Hydrogen Isotope Separation System,

— Water Detritiation System,

— Atmosphere Detritiation System,

— Chemical and isotopic Analysis of gaseous mixtures System,

— Radiological Monitoring of the building,

— Monitoring of hazardous gases,

— Integrate.

Description of the procurement:
Introduction:

The UKAEA’s mission is to lead the commercial development of fusion power and related technology and position the UK as a leader in sustainable nuclear energy. Based at Culham Science Centre near Oxford, UKAEA lead the UK fusion research programme and operate the Joint European Torus (JET) experiment on behalf of scientists from 28 European countries. We are keeping the UK at the forefront of fusion as the world comes together to build the first reactor-scale experiment, ITER — the next step towards electricity from fusion. Along the way, UKAEA is securing benefits for industry and helping to introduce advanced technology and develop skills in the wider nuclear sector. Delivering in many of these areas will require the testing of components in the harsh environment expected in a fusion power station.

An 86 000 000 GBP Government investment in UKAEA's fusion programme has been announced which will fund the building and operation of technology and tritium facilities at Culham Science Centre, expected to open in 2021. The new Fusion Technology Facilities will house the H3AT Facility.

The H3AT Facility objectives are:

— supporting delivery of fusion as a commercial power source,

— promoting industry, academia and research companies for work related to handling tritium and other radioactive isotopes,

— providing capability for training of next generation of scientists and engineers for development of new power sources.

The main field of H3AT activity is processing tritium containing gaseous and liquid mixtures. The key process systems include:

— Storage and Delivery System,

— Hydrogen chemical Purification System,

— Hydrogen Isotope Separation System,

— Water Detritiation System,

— Atmosphere Detritiation System,

— Chemical and isotopic Analysis of gaseous mixtures System,

— Radiological Monitoring of the building,

— Monitoring of hazardous gases,

— Integrated Control System.

Where possible, we seek to maximum use of commercially available, “off the shelf” products.
