Details of the Requirement The Welsh Government is committed to increasing the amount of electricity from renewable sources as part of its overall strategy to tackle climate change. In the short to medium term, wind energy continues to offer the greatest potential (for activities within the control of the planning system in Wales) for delivering renewable energy. Wales has an abundant wind resource and power generation using this resource remains the most commercially viable form of renewable energy. The Welsh Government accepts that the introduction of new, often very large structures for onshore wind and solar development needs careful consideration to avoid and where possible minimise their impact. The majority of renewable energy decisions are made by local authorities and it is important that policies and guidance direct wind energy proposals to the most appropriate locations. To respond to these development pressures, and to ensure officers and members decisions are sufficiently robust it is proposed to develop a landscape capacity and sensitivity study for Carmarthenshire. The study will exclude parts of the County within the Brecon Beacons National Park, which is a separate planning authority. This commission is to provide a Landscape Sensitivity and Capacity Study for both Wind turbine development and Field Scale Solar development, which will then form part of a proposed Supplementary Planning Guidance for Renewable Energy. A full brief is appended to this document. Duration of Contract The Contract will commence on 31st March 2015 and end on 1st November 2015. There will be an option to extend the contract duration to 1st February 2016. Procurement Procedure and Award Criteria The award criteria will be based on 70% Price & 30% Quality Dates – Deadline for Submissions and Start Date The deadline for submissions is 12noon, 16th March 2015. A decision by the Council will be issued within 1 week of this date and the successful bidder will be expected to start the commission on 31st March 2015.

Protective shelters. This Contract Notice is one of a pair of related Notices that should be read in conjunction with each other, and responded-to accordingly. The second Notice can be found in the Sub Contract Opportunities section of Defence Contracts On-line (DCO) and the Defence Contracts Bulletin (DCB), but cannot be replicated in the EU Tenders Electronic Daily (TED). This Notice is intended only for companies, consortia or other economic entities who are interested in expressing interest in providing the complete Expeditionary Domestic Accommodation (EDA) capability as described below. Suppliers of components, systems and services appropriate to EDA who wish to form part of a supply chain but not to lead the overall capability delivery should respond to the related Sub Contract Opportunities Notice. All sub-contract opportunity responses will be made available to all candidate prime contractors. UK MOD has a requirement for an EDA capability to support land forces operations by providing deployable camp infrastructure and facilities (‘bedspaces’) for personnel on multiple simultaneous worldwide operations, potentially in different climatic zones. Indicative EDA modules include, but are not limited to, shelters (e.g. sleeping, medical, command and control, dining, welfare, recreational area, gymnasia, storage), catering, refrigerated storage, ablutions and laundry, security and protection, lighting, flooring, environmental control and the distribution and management of power, fuel, water, waste and communications. Initial Operating Capability (IOC) is required in 2017 with Full Operating Capability (FOC) by 2020. It may be accepted that the complete FOC requirement cannot be delivered within cost limits and that lower-readiness elements of the capability may be reliant on additional operational funding and just in time surge activity. This capability is foreseen to be met by a mix of existing in-service equipment, with some regeneration and/or improvement, and new-supply equipment. Bidders will be given the freedom to propose their optimum solution to deliver the required capability outputs against capital cost and operating cost targets. There will be challenging targets for reducing the consumption of water and electricity, and therefore fuel for power generation. Water consumption may be reduced by increased recycling of grey water. The Key User Requirements endorsed in the EDA Initial Gate Business Case are: — The User shall be able to meet the DSD 13 Defence Planning Assumption Scales of Military Effort for the deployment and use of EDA; — The User shall be able to increase or decrease the size of EDA camps without experiencing a loss of capability and without the requirement to deconstruct existing camp infrastructure; — The User shall be able to remove or add specific EDA modules and upgrades without any unintended impact on the performance of the capability; — The User shall have the capability to sleep at any-time regardless of conditions or time of day; — The User shall be supplied with the capability to provide meals for consumption within the camp; — The User at tier 1 shall be supplied with the capability to store and distribute safe drinking water; — The User shall be able to maintain personal hygiene and excrete bodily waste in a sanitary manner; — The User shall be able to store, transport and operate the EDA capability in the Core Regions; — The User shall be provided with Level 1 and 2 Force Protection Engineering Measures (this is likely to be on a Fitted For But Not With (FFBNW) basis with only a proportion of EDA being so equipped at any time); — The User shall be provided with an EDA capability that has a logistics footprint that is less than the current footprint for ITC. Beyond the regeneration and upgrade of existing equipment and the supply of new equipment, and subject to Value For Money considerations, EDA may require the prime contractor to hold, manage, maintain and issue the equipment fleet on a Contracting For Availability (CFA) basis against a range of readiness targets for a period of 9 - 11 years against cost-bounded, incentivised availability targets. This may include maintaining availability on deployed operations, so the CFA service may therefore require the use of civilian staff as Contractors On Deployed Operations (CONDO) and Sponsored Reservists (SRs) in accordance with the Total Support Force (TSF) concept intrinsic to Army 2020 force and capability generation. While tenders will be invited for both CONDO and SR provision, these will be non-mandatory and non-discriminatory Options. However, bidders who do not tender such Options must demonstrate how operational capability will be assured and incentivised by other means. It is therefore anticipated that EDA may include, but not necessarily be limited to, any or all of the following activities to deliver the required capability availability: — Supply of identified capability gap equipment solutions; — Regeneration, modification or upgrade of existing equipment where this is economically sensible; — Replacement of existing equipment where regeneration etc. is not economically sensible; — Proof of Concept demonstration (i.e. prototyping) prior to production commitment; — Camp Pack Availability to Complete Equipment Schedule (CES) at defined Readiness levels (potentially including EDA allocations of items outside the EDA boundary); — Maintenance, Inspection, Repairs and Refurbishment as required to maintain availability; — Post Design Services to manage obsolescence and surge capacity availability; — Spares Provision and Management; — Operator and Maintainer Training; — Storage and Transport Services (non-operational); — Optional deployable support using CONDO and/or SR. Some of the equipment or service provision elements comprising EDA have, or may have, other wider defence applications beyond the EDA project boundary. It is therefore possible that the Authority may select new, upgraded, modified or refurbished equipment and/or service provision solutions for EDA that have wider defence applications. In such cases the best value for defence may be obtained by expanding the fielding or deployment of any such new, upgraded, modified or refurbished equipment and/or service provision solutions without further competition to supply. In order to accommodate this possibility, tenderers will be requested to provide non-mandatory and non-discriminatory Options to supply further quantities of all new, upgraded, modified or refurbished equipment solutions and to expand the availability of any service provision solutions. All interested parties for both prime and sub contract opportunities should note that an EDA Candidate Bidders Conference will be held on 24.10.2014 at University of the West of England Conference Centre, Bristol. Prior registration is required for attendance, which is limited to 2 people per individual company. Registration requests should be addressed to Laura Akers, ADS Group Ltd Event Manager, +44 2070917812, laura.akers@adsgroup.org.uk Copies of unclassified versions of the current draft EDA System Requirement Document (SRD) and associated documents are available as Supporting Documents in the Dynamic PQQ. Suppliers who are interested in participating in EDA at any level in the supply chain are strongly advised to familiarise themselves with the System Requirements (SRs) relevant to their products, services, capabilities and aspirations - especially those identified as Key non-tradeables (KSRs) — prior to expressing interest.

Background: The Liquid Air Energy Storage (LAES) facility currently located in Slough was designed, developed and constructed by Highview Power Storage over several years, with development work first concentrating on the storage and then subsequent expansion of a cryogenic fluid to provide power generation (discharge device), before the plant was relocated and the facility expanded to include the charging device, a demonstration air liquefaction plant with a ‘first of a kind' cold recycle process. The facility is the first and only fully integrated LAES system of its size known to exist in the world today. Connected to the electricity network, it can be operated to import electrical energy from the grid (using it to create liquid air), store this energy in large super insulated tanks and then expand the liquid air to drive a power turbine and export energy back onto the electricity network as required. Highview Power Storage, the company responsible for developing the system from initial concept, have extensively modelled the process and build multiple lab scale test rigs in order to comprehensively understand the characteristics of the process to enable the safe construction and operation of this ground breaking facility. Scope of Works: The Highview Power Storage LAES facility is to be relocated to a site within the Edgbaston campus of the University of Birmingham. Works involve the safe decommissioning of individual components as well as the process as a whole, this shall require a sufficient level of specialist knowledge of each independent technology and an understanding of how they interact in the process. Once decommissioning is complete the facility is to be systematically disassembled, each component suitably marked and referenced to ensure correct reassembly can be achieved at the new site. The current location of the plant is within an operational power station in Slough trading estate. The site is confined and a collaborative approach will be required with the land and power station owner SSE, to enable the successful disassembly and removal of the LAES plant. This is largely due to the fact that SSE has active plant and personnel in close proximity to the boundary fences of the facility, which will need removal to enable access with specialist lifting equipment and the loading of transport vehicles to complete the works. It should be noted that during the original construction of the facility, adaptive methods were developed between Highview Power Storage and the contractors involved and it is strongly suggested that these methods should be repeated to ensure that the project is completed both economically and effectively. The plant is to be transported to the new site in Birmingham where it is to be reconstructed in the same general arrangement as is currently laid out in Slough to minimise the amount of new pipework fabrication. There are however significant design changes to the facility dictated by differences in available waste heat and utilities between the two sites. The new installation requires the design, sizing and integration of a thermal store taking heat from available steam local to the site, this shall require a sufficient level of knowledge of thermal heat recovery systems as well as how they will interact with the LAES system from both an operational and performance perspective. Once construction is complete and fully tested to the suitable industrial standards, the system is to be re-commissioned and its performance proved before handing over to the University staff. It shall be necessary in the re-commissioning process to follow procedures developed during the original build. As this is a new ‘first of a kind' process these were developed over many months using industry standard methodology, advice from original equipment suppliers and knowledge from commissioning engineers that assisted when the facility was first constructed. Finally the O&M documentation is to be updated taking account of the revised process, including operational guidelines and safety recommendation specific to the LAES process on the new site.
