Services Required for the CAES Zuidwending Project
Storage Cavern FEED Phase 1
Corre Energy Storage BV invites suitably qualified entities to provide an expression of interest to provide services relating to the initial phase of Front-End Engineering Design (FEED) of wells and storage caverns in for CAES Zuidwending.
Storage Cavern FEED Phase 1 will entail a review of existing geological and salt mining data, and data relating to the envisaged construction and operation of the project, to provide outputs that will inform commercial and engineering decisions for subsequent phases of the project design.
Applicants must be prepared to commence the work in April 2020. Applicants should include with their expression of interest information on their experience relating to engineering design of caverns in salt deposits for energy storage, and if possible, for compressed air energy storage. Knowledge and experience of energy storage caverns in the specific geological conditions at Zuidwending is preferable.
The project is seeking expressions of interest (EOIs) from suitably qualified consultant companies to conduct all communications and stakeholder management processes. Expressions of interest must clearly describe how the applicant company's expertise meets the following requirements:
Detailed understanding of the Netherlands audience across a variety of levels including national, regional & local governments, business, public and the press.
Track record in successful communications of large-scale energy/energy storage projects or in projects using underground geological resources.
Capability to appropriately utilise a wide range of communication mechanisms to engage the audience.
Capability to pick up on the impact of communication barriers and adapt the message to accommodate changes if required.
Corre Energy Storage BV is inviting parties with the required capabilities to provide expressions of interest for the provision of engineering services to carry out a Front-End Engineering Design (FEED) for Project CAES Zuidwending.
The objective of the FEED is to ensure all design elements of the project are addressed and represented in a full system design. The FEED will develop and provide the high-level design for the overall plant including the construction details, plant configuration, interface with external utilities and services, and provide detail for required materials and components selection, according to current regulatory design rules and laws. The FEED report will also set out the necessary high-level project design, execution and operational parameters that will be evaluated and studied during the permitting application and environmental impact assessment.
The FEED will aim to ensure a design that is appropriate for the specific location, taking into account local conditions such as current land use, amenities and environment. The Project will be designed with the capability of utilising hydrogen in the generation phase. However, on site hydrogen production will not be considered for the purpose of the FEED.
Expressions of Interest should include a description of the respondent’s experience and capability, specifically:
Experience in delivering large scale thermal power generation projects
Experience in providing Operation and Maintenance for large scale thermal power generation projects
A detailed knowledge of design and performance characteristics of CAES technical plant and balance of plant
Competence in ATEX design management
Direct experience of design and construction of large scale geological-based CAES is preferable.
Corre Energy Storage BV will issue an Invitation to Tender for the FEED to selected respondents to this Request for Expressions of Interest.
Closure date for receipt of EOIs: Friday 28th February 2020
