Egypt Nuclear Power Facility
The Republic of Egypt was pursuing its first commercial nuclear power facility to help augment the country’s energy resources. The Egyptian Nuclear Power Plants Authority issued a solicitation for owner advisory services for building this facility.
A nuclear project is complex and requires diverse expertise and skills. No one company can independently provide all of the required expertise and skills to embark on such an effort. A cohesively operating consortium of experts would be necessary to achieve compliance with the RFP. Additionally, a local Egyptian partner would be needed to serve as a contributing sponsor to provide integration with in-country nationals.
SOCOTEC managed the entire proposal response process by developing logistics, a framework, and execution plan for producing a compliant proposal. This involved three major initiatives:
- Identifying the appropriate expertise through our network of industry contacts
- Developing an analytical team to research all the required information and commence the assembly of the proposal inputs and drafting of the approach
- Establishing a means to collect and synthesize all the inputs into one comprehensive response document
SOCOTEC assembled a qualified team of engineering and technical experts from nine different entities working together as one in a consortium arrangement. Once our team was in place, we conducted numerous workshops to vet the approach and develop details for our proposed work plan. The final effort involved developing a pricing model.
A comprehensive, responsive, and compliant proposal was submitted. After review, our consortium was short-listed, and we were invited to present on-site with the other top-tier competitors.
