We wish to use the equipment/instrument to carry out quantitative chemical analyses of different materials. Our aim is primarily ‘solid state’ samples and the chemical analysis should give the levels a broad spectrum of elements present both as main impurities and trace elements. We have experience in using GDMS for trace element analyses in silicon for solar cells, and we wish to explore the possibilities of analysing other types of materials, both conductive and not conductive.
The procurement is not exclusively limited to the GDMS techniques, but it is important that the equipment makes it possible to carry out both qualitative and quantitative analyses of (but not exclusively):
— bulk chemical concentration( and if possible depth profile concentration) or impurities in semi-conductor silicon for photovoltaic cell applications;
— bulk chemical concentration (and if possible the depth profile concentration) of impurities in Aluminium and other metallic alloys;
— bulk chemical concentration (and if possible the depth profile concentration) of impurities in non-conductive materials, such as Si02 and Si3N4.
With regard to our requirement 25 (see Annex 1), the tenderer must contact the purchaser via the internet portal in sufficient time for the purchaser to send the described materials for testing. The test results will be a part of the evaluation.
For further requirements of the objective, please see the technical specification in annex 1 (see annex).
NTNU's Department of Chemical Engineering wishes to procure a low field NMR instrument that shall be used for analyses of emulsions.

The monitoring program Ecosystem monitoring in freshwaters (ECOFRESH (= ØKOFERSK)) is a continuation of the three former programs ‘Ecosystem monitoring in freshwaters’ part I, II and III. The program covers both surveillance monitoring in reference lakes in accordance with the Water Framework Directive, and chemical and biological monitoring in a fixed network of acid sensitive lakes. The program is now divided into 6 subprograms, 5 of them geographically divided programs: ØKOFERSK Nord (=North), ØKOFERSK Midt (=Mid), ØKOFERSK Vest (=West), ØKOFERSK Sør (=South) and ØKOFERSK Øst (=East), in addition to a subprogram for monitoring of chemical effects of acidification: ØKOFERSK Sur (=acid).
Thermic analysis is an important analysis method within the catalysis discipline at the catalysis group at the Institute for Chemical Process Technology, at NTNU. Thermic analysis measures physical and chemical changes in a material as a function of temperature. It can give us important information on the volatility of the sample components, decomposition, oxidation/reduction reactions and other reactions and changes. In order to continue supporting and developing our research and education in catalysis, the institute plans to procure a thermic analyser that can measure thermic gravimetric analyses (TGA), differential scan calorimetry (DSC) and a differential thermic analyser (DTA) for connection to a mass spectromter (MS).
Physical disturbance, pollution from agriculture, settlement or industry may affect water quality in our rivers. Management in Norway aims to have a good water environment. Environmental monitoring is required to monitor the water quality and on obtaining information on measures necessary to achieve the goal of good water quality.
The acquisition includes sampling, chemical and biological analyses in Norwegian rivers.
NTNU's Institute for Chemical Process Technology http://www.ntnu.edu/chemeng would like to procure equipment for measuring drop distribution (size and amount) as well as its speed. We would like an instrument that can be used inside on a small scale laboratory testing stand, as well as with our outside pilot system. This includes a test section that includes the necessary optical access and cleaning/suction porting. Software to analyse and log data shall also be included/developed for this purpose.
Monitoring environmental toxins in fresh water is a part of the Norwegian authorities' basic monitoring of the environmental condition of water. The intention of the programme is to document the occurrence, levels and accumulation of environmental toxins in Norwegian lakes, as well as to contribute to classifying lakes in accordance with the Water Directive.
The assignment involves sample taking, chemical analyses and reporting.
The intention of the programme is to get information on the occurrence and fate of environmental toxins in the Norwegian fresh water eco-system. The programme involves sample taking and the analysis of samples from different levels in the food chain (abiotic samples, plankton and fish) in a chosen large lake. Environmental toxin levels will also be measured in top predators in a reference lake for comparison. The data acquisition shall provide the basis for assessing the danger to health and the environment and for identifying the requirements for regulating chemicals nationally and/or internationally.
The intention of the sub-programme is to provide information on the occurrence and level of the EU's prioritised environmental toxins in fresh water fish, for classifying the chemical state in accordance with the water regulations. The programme includes the analysis of samples that have been obtained for other activities on behalf of the Norwegian Environment Agency.
The monitoring program Ecosystem monitoring in freshwaters (ecofresh (= økofersk)) is a continuation of the three former programs ‘Ecosystem monitoring in freshwaters’ part I, II and III. The program covers both surveillance monitoring in reference lakes in accordance with the Water Framework Directive, and chemical and biological monitoring in a fixed network of acid sensitive lakes. The program is now divided into 6 subprograms, 5 of them geographically divided programs: ØKOFERSK Nord (=North), ØKOFERSK Midt (=Mid), ØKOFERSK Vest (=West), ØKOFERSK Sør (=South) and ØKOFERSK Øst (=East), in addition to a subprogram for monitoring of chemical effects of acidification: ØKOFERSK Sur (=acid).
Monitoring of reference lakes and acidified lakes in Northern Norway.
Monitoring for reference lakes in mid-Norway.
Monitoring of reference lakes and acidified lakes in western Norway.
Monitoring of reference lakes and acidified lakes in southern Norway.
Monitoring of reference lakes and acidified lakes in eastern Norway.
Monitoring water chemistry in lakes and catchments in all parts of Norway.
The Contracting Authority shall enter into framework agreements regarding the purchase of chemicals.
Compared with other European countries, Norway has a broad and versatile range of relatively intact hydrometric areas. The extent of the activities that influences the hydrometric areas has however increased. Physical interventions, pollution from agriculture, built-up areas or industry are examples of such activities. The climatic changes are also influencing the Norwegian rivers. The Administrative Authority in Norway aims at having a good aquatic environment. This must be documented by surveillance. The Environmental Protection Authorities also requires comprehensive knowledge about processes related to nutritive substances and environmental poisons in Norwegian rivers, in order to assess how the rivers influence the Norwegian coastal areas, and if measures must be implemented for achieving the goal for a healthy aquatic environment.
The procurement is for sample taking, chemical and biological analyses in Norwegian rivers.
The procurement concerns analysis of water samples taken in connection with liming of rivers and lakes. The Contracting Authority shall undertake laboratory water chemical analysis of regular water samples taken upstream and downstream of liming in acidification affected waterways. The analyses shall be carried out according to specified sequences (a, b and c sequence), where different parameter ranges are involved in each sequence. The water samples will be sent to the Contracting Authority via mail, and the analytical results must be available by specified deadlines. The Contracting Authority is responsible for acquiring and labelling sample bottles and sending these to the samplers. The analytical results shall be sent via email in accordance with the recipient list, loaded in databases, presented in tables and graphs, and combined in a single annual report.
The assignment duration will be from 1.1.2016 to 31.12.2017, with an option for extension of 1 year + 1 year.
