GEANT Ltd on behalf of the Ubuntunet Alliance and European National Research and Education Networks, is coordinating procurement efforts under the AfricaConnect project. The project, funded by the European Commission Development and Cooperation — EuropeAid directorate (http://ec.europa.eu/europeaid/index_en.htm), aims to establish a high-capacity network for research and education in Southern and Eastern Africa (ESA) region, and to connect this network to the world wide community of Research and Education Networks through GÉANT, the pan-European Research and Education Network operated by GÉANT Ltd. The beneficiaries of AfricaConnect are the NRENs under the UbuntuNet Alliance, the regional Research and Education Network for the ESA region. The Alliance currently has membership drawn from 15 countries namely: The Democratic Republic of Congo, South Africa, Ethiopia, Kenya, Madagascar, Malawi, Mozambique, Namibia, Rwanda, Somalia, Sudan, Tanzania, Burundi, Uganda and Zambia. The project has European partners comprising the National Research and Education Networks (NREN) of Germany, Ireland, Italy, the Netherlands and Portugal who respectively represent the GÉANT community. Africa Connect has already established a network within ESA with the following links in production; 1. SEACOM CLS, Mtunzini to KDN Data Center, Sameer Park, Nairobi with drops at SEACOM CLS Maputo and SEACOM CLS Dar es Salaam, @ STM 4. 2. KDN Data Centre, Sameer Park, Nairobi to Liquid Rwanda PoP, Kigali with a drop at NITA-U Data Centre, Statistics House, Kampala, @ STM 4. 3. EASSY CLS, Mtunzini to Amsterdam with a drop at KDN Data Centre, Sameer Park, Nairobi, @ STM 4. 4. Seacom CLS, Dar Es Salaam to Lusaka, @ STM 4. The above Africa Connect links are complemented by a number of UA and NREN provided links in the region to form a resilient network. The nature of the funding from DG DEVCO is such that an 8 % proportion of the 14 750 000 EUR budget (1 180 000 EUR) is retained by the EC until after the project is closed and has been subject to an EC review. GÉANT and the UA are seeking proposals for increases in bandwidth on these routes that will need to be implemented and invoiced before the project closes in May 2015. However it must be noted that funds to support such bandwidth increases will not be available until after the project is closed and has been subject to a satisfactory review by the European Commission. Only then will funds be released by DG Devco. GÉANT and the UA are not able to commit any upfront funding of this magnitude and so a Competitive Dialogue procedure is being embarked upon to establish the potential that may exist in respect of commercial providers who are able to work within the GÉANT — DEVCO grant fund contractual and commercial environment. This Competitive Dialogue procurement will seek to establish what the contractual and commercial construct will be that can support the increase of bandwidth on extant routes or the establishment of new routes with deferred payment options. The term of the contract is anticipated to be 10 years, this will be discussed in the dialogue stage as well as the potential route options.

Title:     Invitation to Tender for the Provision of Asbestos Surveying Services on Behalf of the Energy Efficiency Service

Summary:           The Energy Efficiency Service (EES) was launched by the Minister for Planning and Environment in April of 2009.  It is funded by an annual budget of around £1 million from the States of Jersey, as well as an initial donation of £500,000 from the Jersey Electricity Company. The scheme provides a programme of energy efficiency improvement advice to all Islanders as well as incentives and grants to certain eligible Islanders.

 Through completing the range of works the EES contractors have the potential to disturb asbestos containing materials (ACMs).  In order to minimise the risk of exposure to asbestos, any property that requires invasive works (highlighted within the list with an (i)), requires an asbestos survey before works can take place.

The EES is looking for contractors to tender services to provide surveys to identify asbestos within the properties.

42414200

The ongoing expansion of the TWI Facility in Port Talbot will include the addition of a second high bay laboratory. This high bay laboratory will need to be capable of handling large, heavy customer samples from a variety of industries. Due to the varying size and weight of project samples that we currently have onsite and the potential for larger samples in the future, we propose to install two ten tonne overhead cranes which are capable of operating independently or in tandem. The ability to operate in tandem will allow us to handle large heavy components which have large distances between lifting points. This will remove the need for a taller building to allow the use of lifting beams and spreader bars. The preferred supplier must liaise with the build contractors throughout the build to ensure that all requirements are captured and schedules and deadlines and met. Please ensure that all queries are submitted through the In-Tend correspondence facility.

35125100

TWI Technology Centre (Wales) has been using a robotic cell for automated Non-Destructive Testing (NDT) since 2012 and is continually working towards improving the existing setup. An automated part recognition system is required as part of the ongoing development. This development is aimed at reducing the overall time needed for inspections as well as assuring the optimal robotic path is utilised by measuring the component geometry accurately. A 2D/3D displacement sensor would significantly decrease the setup time needed for inspections by measuring features on the surface of a component which will be used to define the base coordinates in the robot reference frame. In addition, a 2D/3D displacement sensor will enable more accurate path planning by verifying the geometry of the component prior to inspection, and using the displacement data to correct for differences between the CAD data provided for the component, and the actual component geometry. The supplier will provide a single light based (either laser profile or structured light) scanning system capable of measuring standoff distance to a component.
