2.4 Gegenstand der Beschaffung

Switzerland operates several dose-rate monitoring networks which measure radioactive radiation continually and on a large scale. The readings which are obtained are used to raise the alarm, determine the radiological situation, and establish measures to protect the public in the event of enhanced levels of radioactivity in the environment.

The "MADUK and NADAM System Update 2020" project involves three dose-rate monitoring networks:

The MADUK network (MADUK: automatic dose-rate monitoring network in the vicinity of nuclear power plants) has 57 measuring stations which are sited near to Swiss nuclear power stations and the Paul Scherrer Institute. Should a release of radioactivity occur, the MADUK monitoring network is able to make a rapid assessment of the radiological situation in the vicinity of the nuclear power plants. The measuring stations which make up this network comprise stationary measuring detectors along with other electronic equipment (power supply, data logger, communication devices). However, more stringent requirements mean that in the future these detectors will have to be energy self-sufficient. The operator of the MADUK network is the Federal Nuclear Safety Inspectorate (ENSI). For temporary measuring campaigns in the vicinity of nuclear power plants, the ENSI can also deploy mobile measuring stations; these comprise identical detectors as those installed in the stationary measuring stations, along with individual spectrometers.

The NADAM stationary network (NADAM: Automatic Dose Alarm and Monitoring Network) comprises 76 stations located across Switzerland, which ensure round-the-clock monitoring of the local dose rate. NADAM also acts as an early warning system by immediately alerting the National Emergency Operations Centre (NEOC) if a reading shows that the alarm value has exceeded the pre-defined threshold. These measuring detectors are installed, at the behest of the NEOC, at MeteoSwiss (MCH) weather stations, where they are connected to the MCH power supply and data logging system.

The NADAM mobile network comprises 30 mobile detectors which can be selectively deployed, at the behest of the NEOC, to further reinforce, when necessary, the NADAM stationary network. Like the MADUK detectors, NADAM mobile detectors must be energy self-sufficient. A further requirement is that these devices can be transported (by car) and installed on site by a single individual.

These energy self-sufficient detectors must be replaced by the end of 2020 owing to the fact that the Swiss mobile network operators intend to phase out the 2G network (GSM, GPRS) which these devices use to communicate, and the current supplier does not offer any upgrades to newer generations of mobile telephony. In addition, the detectors in all of the above three measuring networks must be replaced by the end of 2021 because the current supplier will cease to offer any services and technical support for their product after this point.

Details of the subject of the invitation to tender:
Pursuant to the information provided above, the invitation to tender concerns the replacement, in the sense of an update, of both the aforementioned detectors and the electronic equipment (power supply, data logger, communication devices) installed in the MADUK measuring stations. Enhanced functionality is not the primary concern here. With this in mind, the prospective subject of the invitation to tender will be the following:

76 stationary measuring detectors (without spectrometry) to replace the detectors currently installed at the 76 NADAM fixed measuring stations (integration in the MeteoSwiss weather stations), and an additional 30-35 spare units.

30 energy self-sufficient mobile measuring stations, including measuring detectors (without spectrometry), power supply and data communication (4G/LTE) that can be flexibly deployed within the NADAM mobile network, as well as a network management system that is compatible with the NADAM mobile measuring stations.

58 energy self-sufficient fixed measuring stations, including the requisite detectors (without spectrometry), power supply, data logger, communication devices (4G/LTE and satellite), standpipe for the MADUK network, and an additional 5-10 spare units.

3 energy self-sufficient mobile measuring stations for the MADUK network, including the requisite detectors, power supply, data logger, communication devices (4G/LTE and satellite), which are identical to those required for the fixed stations.

3 energy self-sufficient mobile measuring stations for the MADUK network with spectrometry detectors, power supply, data logger and communication devices (4G/LTE).

All detectors must be capable of measuring, in an open environment, the ambient dose equivalent H*(10) in a range of 10 nSv/h to 10 Sv/h. The readings are averaged over 10-minute intervals, synchronised to absolute time (hh:00, hh:10, hh:20 etc.). The standard deviation (1 Sigma) of 10-minute mean values at a dose rate of 100 nSv/h should not exceed 10%. Below 100 nSv/h, a resolution of 1 nSv/h is required; above this threshold 3 significant digits suffice.
The NADAM stationary detectors are already connected to the MCH power supply and data transmission system. In contrast, the NADAM mobile stations and the MADUK stations should be capable of functioning and transmitting data independent of a mains power supply. NADAM mobile stations will use fourth-generation mobile technology (4G/LTE) for data transmission; a redundant solution is additionally sought for the MADUK detectors, e.g. satellite technology, to ensure that data can continue to be sent even if a power failure were to occur on the public terrestrial mobile telephone network. The MADUK measuring stations will be stationary. However, as regards the NADAM mobile stations, it is necessary that the apparatus required can be transported (by car), assembled and activated by a single individual. Also, this apparatus, together with the mobile mounting device, must be able to withstand peak wind speeds of up to 120 km/h.

3. Bedingungen
3.1 Generelle Teilnahmebedingungen
The tendered detectors to measure the local dose rate will be deployed in official monitoring networks. Pursuant to the FDJP Ordinance on Measuring Instruments for Ionising Radiation (IRMISO, Section 5 / SR No. 941.210.5), they must be officially authorised by the Federal Institute of Metrology (METAS - see Annex_1_Antrag_zur_Zulassung_StMmV_de / and must be calibrated by the latter or another authorised calibration body at the time of commissioning; it must be re-calibrateable on a regular basis thereafter. Said METAS authorisation is a prerequisite and will be a mandatory criterion in the technical specifications of the forthcoming WTO tender. A METAS-authorised five-year calibration period is desirable.
The purpose of this advance notice is to afford interested bidders the opportunity to initiate the METAS authorisation procedure as early as possible so that, in the sense of equal treatment under procurement law, bidders who currently do not hold the necessary authorisation, can rectify this situation. The present advance notice neither is a call for offers/tender nor should be taken as a guarantee that such a procedure will be launched. Furthermore, it does not place any commissioning or procurement obligations whatsoever on the procurement agent. The latter is not seeking any bids at the present time. Any unsolicited bids it receives will be disregarded and returned to the sender.
Interested bidders should note that the procurement agent shall pay out no compensation in relation to the authorisation procedure and expenses resulting from it. These costs shall be borne solely by the bidder.
In view of the project schedule and authorisation deadlines, the procurement agent recommends that interested bidders voluntarily contact METAS as early as possible in order to initiate the official authorisation procedure (Annex_1_Antrag_zur_Zulassung_StMmV_de /
