UKAEA wants to identify and partner with Consultant(s) to develop conceptual designs for the breeder blankets of a fusion power plant. Identified Consultant(s) would develop conceptual designs for fusion Breeder Blankets, which are critical systems for future fusion power plants. This system plays an important role in the fuel and thermal cycles of fusion power plants. Breeder Blankets generate fusion fuel and useful heat, which is transferred to the circulated coolant. In many cases this is pressurised and places large loads onto the Breeder Blanket structure. Consultant(s) are requested to submit proposals that address structural and thermal design challenges, applying their expertise to either improve performance, manufacturability and/or Technology Readiness

Please note that where a tender award refers to a framework agreement, the individual values of the award may be shown as the total value of the framework rather than the value of that award to each winner, so for this tender the possible value of the framework to each winner could be £37,754 rather than £151,015
