Extended TitleManufacturing and Supply of Diagnostics Components
Extended Description

The scope of this framework contract will include:

— manufacture to build-to-print specifications of components and assemblies;

— supply of COTS or customised items to functional specifications;

— factory acceptance testing;

— cleaning, packing and shipping.

For the following ITER diagnostics and sub-systems:

— equatorial visible/IR wide-angle viewing system (WAVS);

— collective Thomson scattering system (CTS);

— vacuum vessel electrical feedthroughs; and

— Bolometer installation templates;

— WAVS is an optical diagnostic providing visible and infra-red images of a large part of the ITER first wall components and inboard divertor targets. WAVS components for 11 lines of sight in 3 ITER equatorial ports will be manufactured under this framework contract;

— CTS is based in one ITER equatorial port and collects electromagnetic waves from a powerful mm-wave beam scattered by highly energetic ions in the ITER plasma, in order to monitor the dynamics and distribution of the ions. All CTS components in the port plug will be manufactured under this framework contract;

— there are around 80 vacuum vessel electrical feedthroughs assemblies on ITER, which allow up to 5 000 signals from diagnostics in the ITER vacuum vessel to cross the ITER tritium boundary. All the feedthroughs and assemblies will be manufactured under this framework contract;

— the Bolometer diagnostic consists of around 500 sensitive thermistors housed in around 50 collimator arrays, or cameras, to provide spatially resolved measurement of power emitted by the ITER plasma. Under F4E-OMF-1126, F4E will manufacture up to 22 temporary ‘installation templates’ that will enable installation of the 22 vacuum vessel mounted bolometer cameras in the 2nd assembly phase of ITER.

Many of the components and assemblies forming part of the scope of this framework contract are needed for ITER first plasma, and must be delivered by 2023. Adherence to schedule, and thus good project management will be of the upmost importance. Quality requirements will also be demanding and the vacuum vessel electrical feedthroughs are ‘protection important components’ due to their nuclear safety function, meaning that the manufacture needs to be conducted to a very high standard, following appropriate defined requirements and codes/standards.

There will be around 20-40 distinct, complex sub-assemblies manufactured under this framework contract, as well as many independent components and supply of COTS or customised items. Several of the assemblies will be manufactured in quantities of more than 10 units, some with slight variations. Many components and sub-assemblies will be required to operate in UHV conditions.
