The Services are the supply of a team of specialists to undertake ‘Round 5 of the Comprehensive Dam Safety Reviews’ (CDSR) of the Dam Safety Assurance Programmes for Meridian’s Waitaki Valley reservoirs. The scope of these reviews will be in terms of the NZSOLD Dam Safety Guidelines 2015,
Meridian is taking a two stage approach to the procurement of a Reviewer Team. The attached documents are for the first stage, which will be to short list preferred Reviewer Team options. The short listed teams will be invited to provide pricing and hour (hours of effort per CDSR) estimation for the services following stage 1.
The proposed contract is an NEC3 Professional Services Contract with payment option G – Term Contract for a fixed period of 5 years.
The proposed CDSR Reviewer Team is expected to remain constant over the 5 year period of the reviews, and to consist of three experienced engineers, who are each specialised in one of the following specific areas:
a) Dam Engineering – Civil and Geotechnical;
b) Hydro Mechanical Engineering, specifically Gates and Valves; or
c) Electrical Engineering and Control and Instrumentation Engineering.
As well as these ‘engineering disciplines’ related elements of the CDSR, between them the Reviewer Team will need to adequately cover all of the diverse aspects listed in the CSDR scope in C2 - Section 3.2. This is necessary to ensure that the CDSR provides a holistic assessment of the Dam Safety Assurance Programme for each reservoir.
In addition to this, Meridian aims to achieve ‘continuous improvement’ in its DSAP, and as part of this is keen to expose is CDSR Plan Team members to the wealth of knowledge and experience that the Reviewer Team will bring.
