REF: AEMRI-38-OC - 2 x 10 tonne Overhead Cranes

TWI Ltd | Published March 6, 2017
cpvs
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.

cpvs
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.

It is the aspiration that among the research accommodation will be new facilities for the University's Institute of Public Health and also a state-of-the-art neuro-sciences hub. In formulating principles for development, the masterplan would embrace the following objectives:

— Providing a high-quality environment for researchers, students, patients and visitors, with new amenities and better public realm.

— Improving the arrival experience for staff, patients and visitors, taking into account travel and transport requirements, access and circulation (a number of the sites are at the main entrance to the Cambridge Biomedical Campus from Hills Road).

— Enhance connectivity on the campus generally, and in particular between University activities, though also with an eye to establishing better interfaces between University research on the 1 hand and clinical and commercial activities on Campus on the other.

— Bringing forward sustainable development, with particular emphasis on achieving site energy infrastructure including, where possible, renewable energy technologies, and in the expectation that development at the sites will achieve a minimum rating of BREEAM excellent.

— Optimisation of the development capacity of the identified sites.

The University and the Trust would also like to secure the potential to include within the scope of the study several key Trust sites, also around the front of the Campus. The Trust is currently developing its new clinical strategy, which it expects to publish in September/October 2016, and at that stage will be in a position to decide whether it would like these sites included.

The School requires the provision of technical maintenance service agreements for all listed equipment and for equipment purchased in the future in order to deliver flow cytometry services to their customers and researchers in a timely and reliable manner.

This tender has been split into 2 Lots. Lot 1 relates to those items listed under the high-end category on the accompanying spreadsheet, and Lot 2 relates to those items listed under medium-end category on the accompanying spreadsheet. A bid must cover all pieces of equipment on Lot 1, all pieces of equipment on Lot 2, or all pieces of equipment for both Lots. Exclusion of any piece of equipment will render the bid incomplete.

Tenderers may bid for 1, or both Lots. Tenderers must not make the pricing of their response to 1 Lot conditional upon acceptance of their pricing on the other Lot, however, where a bidder offers a multi-Lot discount (which must apply to both Lots) and wins either Lot 1 or Lot 2, the evaluation and award process on both Lots will be re-run after applying the discount to the price element.

NB: In order to secure the most advantageous tender for the University, discount levels offered by bidders on this tender will take into account, and also be applied to, existing contracts that are already in place (if any) between the bidder and the University for the same service on similar equipment, and will be included when evaluating responses.

It is anticipated that during the contract, equipment may be added or removed as necessary with costs adjusted in line with those tendered.

Bids are sought for 1 year, 3 year and 5 year terms. Tenderers are expected to bid for all equipment in each lot and for all 3 terms. The term agreed will be based on the combination of price and quality that is most advantageous to the University.

Site / Equipment Survey:

It is the University's intention to complete the tender evaluation in such time that the contract for this equipment could be awarded within 6 weeks of the tender closing date.

Bidders are encouraged to attend the University to undertake a survey of the equipment in order to get a full understanding of the items covered by this tender and their environment.

The announcement of Oracle PeopleSoft Campus Solutions v9.2 (targeted for general availability in late 2015), provides the University with the opportunity to review our current deployment 10 years after the initial implementation in 2004/2005. This evaluation will consider the new functionality delivered by Oracle as part of the continuous delivery model, and how these enhancements can support the current and future requirements of the University. The overall objective being to maximise the return on the investment in Oracle products by favouring delivered functionality over customisation and bespoke development where possible. The approach aims to deliver the upgrade, with external partner support, allowing us to continue the maintenance of the live system, releases, and statutory changes, and any critical development project needs. The intention is that any changes would be developed as a ‘bolt-on’, which could be transitioned into the v9.2 environment, with the production 9.0 environment remaining fundamentally unchanged during the upgrade project.

GÉANT's backbone IP network is entirely made up of Juniper MX series routers. These routers were procured in 2012 as part of a contract which included 4 years of on-site support and a framework for upgrades and expansion. That 4 year contract expires on 5.9.2016, and accordingly GÉANT is looking to secure 1 or more Preferred Tenderers to deliver a number of services both to support the current set of routers and also allow for their ongoing enhancement. This procurement to establish a series of Framework Agreements is split into 3 Lots as follows: 1. Lot 1 — Reseller of Juniper Hardware and Support Services — a list of Juniper hardware, software subscription and support services is referred to in the ITSOP. Bidders should accept that the estate is a live, changing environment and changes to hardware requirements may be notified during the tender process. 2. Lot 2 — Hardware Spares Management — Ability to delivery hardware to our European, and potentially EMEA and US sites, in a timely manner. 3. Lot 3 — First Line Maintenance (FLM) — Suitably qualified and experienced field engineers to perform hardware replacement in our European, and potentially EMEA and US sites, in a timely manner.
