Framework to supply and deliver a range of pollution control equipment including provision for a managed service for the Intrinsically Safe Pumps in operational use, including inventory, maintenance and training.

The Framework is primarily intended to meet the needs of the Environment Agency and Fire and Rescue Services (FRS) throughout the UK. The Environment Agency may require the successful Tenderer(s) to provide the goods/services on the same terms to the Northern Ireland Environment Agency, Isle of Man Environment Agency, Scottish Environmental Protection Agency, Highways England, Department of Environment,Agriculture and Rural Affairs and the Department of the Environment, Food and Rural Affairs, and to its associated bodies including any Agencies and non departmental public bodies. A full list can be found at: http://archive.defra.gov.uk/corporate/about/with/delivery/landscape/documents/public-bodies.pdf

Sorbent products suitable for use in a range of spill incidents including Oil and Chemical spills. All sorbents should comply with BS7959.

General Requirements: The material contained within these products is to be inert, lightweight and dust free (non-linting). Where applicable, outer fabric must allow passage of product to be taken in but be of sufficient structure to fully contain the contents. Booms and pillows may be of either a fixed or loose fill nature, but must have a protective mesh type outer skin to improve durability. Secure non metallic fastenings should be located at such points as to allow the linking of booms to form gap free spans for larger watercourses.

Sheets and rolls should be single thickness only.

Preference will be given to products made from sustainable materials providing they offer acceptable performance and value for money.

Colour Coding — Fire and Rescue Service sorbent requirements. It's required that the colour of sorbents should be standardised to reflect their use in the Fire and Rescue Service and the Environment Agency for the term of the Framework.

All sorbent products should be colour coded in line with British Standard 7959 pt 3. As a guide, the standard colours currently in use are blue oil sorbent products and yellow chemical sorbents, although this may be altered if products are manufactured from a sustainable material that can't be coloured.

Oil Boom Requirements: Operational demands require that booms must be able to retain their structure during long periods of deployment without disintegrating. The outer material must allow the passage of oil and be of sufficient structure to fully contain the contents. All products must retain their hydrophobic/oleophilic properties and structural integrity for a minimum of 14 days continuous use. Results of tests using the British Standard test procedure (BS7959), pt 1 and 2 under normal operating conditions, will be required to confirm products meet these minimum operational standards.

Full specification for the products required is contained within the Invitation to Tender Document.

Other similar sealing products may be required during the lifetime of the framework as operational needs dictate.
