sludge-processing equipment

Thames Water Utilities Limited | Published July 21, 2012  -  Deadline August 2, 2012

34951200, 42996900

:Thames Water is the UK's largest water and sewerage company, serving 14 million customers across London and the Thames Valley with about 348 sewage treatment works (STW) and about 30 sludge centres, where primary sludge, secondary activated sludge (SAS), a mixture of both, regular digested sludge as well as sludge subject to thermal hydrolysis is dewatered. Current dewatering technologies involve mechanical dewatering with belt presses and centrifuges decanters. Cake is either recycled to agriculture or used in sludge power generation. Thames Water intends to award one or more framework agreements to supplier(s) capable to provide high dry solids dewatering equipment and after sales services for one or more of the following model options: Lot 1 supply only of equipment and ancillary elements. Lot 2 supply and installation of equipment and ancillary elements. Lot 3 after sales support/services (it may include part or all of these elements: spare, wearing and consumable parts, process review and advice, maintenance and equipment operation). High dry solids dewatering is where sewage sludge is dewatered to higher percentage dry solids than would be expected from more conventional dewatering equipment such as belt or centrifuge dewaterers; typically between 7 to 10 percentage points higher. Solution(s) to be offered must meet the following criteria: — For conventional mesophilic anaerobic digestion (60 % primary–40 % SAS) with average 45 % volatile solids destruction dry solids of the final product needs to be at least 30 % dry solids or higher with a minimum of 97 % capture rate, — For thermally hydrolyzed mesophilic anaerobic digestion (60 % primary–40 % SAS) with 60 % volatile solids destruction dry solids of the final product needs to be at least 40 % dry solids or higher with a minimum of 97 % capture rate, — Apart from high dry solids content and clear filtrate (i.e. low suspended solids) a non-odorous and stackable product is also required, — A single process dewatering solution rather than a two stage system (e.g. combining dewatering and drying, given the high cost of drying). Thames Water is considering the possible installation of high dry solids dewatering equipment at a number of sites ranging in size from 12 500 tons dry solids / year dewatered to 17 500 tons dry solids / year dewatered. Thames Water is looking to establish a relationship with companies with a proven track record for supply of equipment into this market on this scale and to establish a relationship with companies who manufacture this equipment rather than third parties. Thames Water reserves the right to combine two or more lots into a single contract depending on the responses received to the OJEU notice. Thames Water also reserves the right to make no award as a result of this procurement process, or may award in part or in whole. The length of the agreement will be subject to the model option selected for award. As a general guidance, Thames Water envisages that any agreement for either lots 1 or 2 would be for an initial duration of 3 years with options to extend annually up to a maximum duration of 5 years. For lot 3, it may be for an initial duration of 5 years with options to extend annually up to a maximum of 10 years.

BACKGROUND TO THE PROJECT 1) During recent system based inspections across ONR programmes, a potential gap has been identified in ONR’s organisational specialist knowledge around essential/emergency diesel generators (EDGs). This is reinforced by a number of incidents reported to ONR from across the UK nuclear sector such as insufficient post maintenance inspection, configuration management and failure to start on demand. There is also a growing concern around the impact of recent legislation changes pertaining to bio-diesels, and the adverse affects bio-diesels have on the operability, reliability and maintainability of diesel engines. 2) The majority of the nuclear licensed sites utilise EDGs of varying type and configuration to satisfy their particular back-up power supplies and reliability requirements set out within their respective safety cases. 3) Ageing and obsolescence across the UK nuclear industry have become key focuses both for ONR and the licencees. The nature of the ageing plants has required greater reliance in terms of emergency power back-ups as prescribed by the relevant sites safety cases. This position has been reinforced further by the repeated reference to EDGs within Fukishima stress test results which again state the importance of having reliable emergency capacity for power generation. This work covers emergency power generation systems currently installed and held on site, but would also include mobile units held off-site such as proposed as part of the UK review of the Japanese earthquake response. The information is equally relevant to the design of new build projects such as Hinkley Point C and beyond as robust back-up power supplies should be suitably considered for the operational life of the sites. 4) The increase in age of the EDGs themselves has further led to difficulties for the licencees in terms of obsolete parts and rapidly diminishing expert knowledge, both in-company and with external maintenance contractors. ONR judges a gap exists within its corporate knowledge and seeks to address this shortfall to produce enhanced guidance on national and international relevant good practice to assist with regulatory judgements and decision making. SCOPE OF THE SERVICES REQUIRED 5) The Mechanical Engineering specialism identified that guidance on relevant good practice was needed not only for Mechanical assessment but cross discipline including (but not limited to) Civil, Control & Instrumentation, and Electrical Engineering. 6) Use of such guidance would enable ONR to assess and inspect licensees more consistently with targeted challenges to areas important to nuclear safety and provide guidance on relevant good practice to existing and new build projects to ensure compliance and alignment with legal requirements.
