RFP for Innovative Approach for Fuel Debris Retrieval

Result of adoption for subsidized project operating entities ; Request for Proposal (RFP) for Conceptual Study of Innovative Approach for Fuel Debris Retrieval and Feasibility Study of Essential technologies

Last year, IRID executed a Request for Information (RFI) for Innovative Approach for Fuel Debris Retrieval, as a part of project commissioned by the Agency for Natural Resources and Energy (ANRE), and received about 200 responses from world wide range of organizations from industry to academic institutions.
As a next step for the Innovative Approach for Fuel Debris Retrieval after RFI, ANRE has prepared for Request for Proposal (RFP), and IRID, as a technical support to ANRE, has reviewed the RFI responses in detail and selected topics and generated specification for RFP.

Based on this topics and generated specification for RFP, as a part of subsidy programs for Decommissioning and Contaminated Water Management by ANRE, the RFP, three projects below, related to the Innovative Approach for Fuel Debris Retrieval was conducted by Mitsubishi Research Institute (MRI), the Project Management Office in June this year.

(1) Conceptual Study of Innovative Approach for Fuel Debris Retrieval
(2) Feasibility Study of Visual and Measurement Technology for Innovative Approach
(3) Feasibility Study of Fuel Debris Cutting and Dust Collection Technology for Innovative Approach

Regarding this RFP, we are announcing the 11 subsidized project operating entities;4 entities for 1) Conceptual Study of Innovative Approach for Fuel Debris Retrieval, 4 entities for 2) Feasibility Study of Visual and Measurement Technology for Innovative Approach and 3 entities for 3) Feasibility Study of Fuel Debris Cutting and Dust Collection for Innovative Approach have been adopted as follows as a result of the review and evaluation of the Review Committee held on 25th (just after the presentation by proposer) . The entities are disclosed on MRI’s website.

RFP for entities to implement the subsidy program “Validation of technologies for Decommissioning and Contaminated Water management project (Concept Study of Innovative Approach for Fuel Debris Retrieval and Feasibility Study of Essential Technology)” in the FY2013 Supplementary Budget – Results of Adoption [Released on October 3]
