VPRAŠANJE
Due facts that Unit 6 is strategic asset for Republic of Slovenia and knowing that availability of Unit 6 is very important KPI logically references on similar plant are important factor for this tender. Its huge difference in Technology, KPIs and O&M tasks for Coal Fire Power Plant (CFPP) and Gas Fired Combined/Simple Cycle (GFCC) meaning that complexity of CFPP is couple of factor higher compare to GFCC.
In that respect and referring to tender document
Appendix H - Evaluation Matrix - Combined LTSA, OPM, APM and DCS - May 26;sheet Stage 1-Technical Capabilities; Part 5: DCS Migration; Points number 1 18;
we assume that points 1-18 counts positively if proposed equivalent DCS platform was content of reference plants valid exclusively for complete Coal Fire Power Plant (CFPP) covering boiler + turbine + balance of plant. Reference details could be validated via direct contact of CFPP responsible person.

Please confirm above.

By checking tender documentation, specifically documents for Safety System (BPS-WSC):
TECHNICAL DOCUMENTATION May 29 2020.docx
STJ06IC-------N80MM705_C_ALSPA CONTROPLANT DCS Safety Boiler and WSC-Operating and Maintenance Manual.pdf in Appendix J (AS BUILT version)
STJ-06-IC------N80-SD-703 - Communication architectureSafety Boiler & WSC - Communication architecture - ALSPA CONTROPLANT_5-12-2012.pdf in Appendix K.7
STJ-06-IC-N80-DO-503_C_DCS General Description - ALSPA CONTROPLANT DCS_28-09-2012.pdf in Appendix K.6

it is visible that separate Safety System CE3500 is used and that field signals are doubled in Safety System and ALSPA DCS. After processing in Safety System these signals are returned to ALSPA DCS, either via HW or MODBUS connection for further use e.g. control SW, HMI, trending, archiving

By our opinion and usual practice for similar Coal Fire Power Plants, much better approach in DCS replacement would be to use Boiler Protection System which is fully integrated in new DCS and fulfills requirements from EN DIN 57116 / VDE 0116, IEC61511 and safety requirements class SIL 1 to SIL 3 in accordance with IEC 61508 and category 2 to 4 in accordance with EN 954-1 and to dismantle existing Boiler Protection System CE3500.
Fully integrated definition above means:
- All central components of the boiler protection (coupler, bus etc.) shall be of redundant design. All boiler protection engineering, monitoring, alarming and diagnostic functions are identical to that of the control system. Thus, inconsistencies in the system and operator operation errors are widely avoided.
- The engineering of fail-safe components (e.g. boiler protection) is to be carried out in the same engineering system as main DCS
- All signals coming from the boiler protection are to be time-stamped and integrated into the DCS timestamp. The resulting logic is to be displayed as a dynamic logic diagram in the central control system with the help of a schematic
- The simulation of signals (e.g. forcing input/output signals, set points etc.) during normal Unit/Boiler operation must be possible.
- Boiler protection system software and function configuration shall be system-protected (by software or hardware) and physically (suitable locks) against unauthorized persons interference (particularly against introducing changes in I&C functions configuration and databases)
- The DCS must have a consistent hardware platform for all plant areas. The same integrated hardware platform (the same models of CPUs and I/O cards and the same cabinet type) must be used for all power plant automation tasks, i.e. all expert and automation systems specialized for the base automation, turbine control and fail-safe automation are integrated into the DCS. Engineering, diagnosis and maintenance for all components of the control system are carried out with the help of the same hardware platform and can be displayed at any DCS workstation.

In this way faster implementation of new replacement DCS would be possible, and simplified wiring of field signals, with integrated tools for engineering, HMI, archiving, diagnostic and troubleshooting of new integrated DCS and Boiler Protection System would made future operation and maintenance of Unit simpler, faster and reliable, with better cyber security and without compromising Safety Requirements and achieved SIL classifications.

Please confirm above as new mandatory request for this tender.


ODGOVOR
We agree with the possibility of implementation of DCS system where Boiler Protection System (BPS) is integrated in plant DCS system. Requirement for such integrated DCS system is that protection part of DCS system fulfils requirements from EN DIN 57116 / VDE 0116, IEC61511 and safety requirements class SIL 1 to SIL 3 in accordance with IEC 61508 and category 2 to 4 in accordance with EN 954-1. However, we emphasize that this approach is only a possibility and is not to be interpreted as new mandatory request for this tender. The offer can take the approach either as initially provided or as you proposed.

Technical documentation, Article 5.5.1 Availability
Clarification request:
The outage in 2021 might not be executed by the Contractor due to separate tendering ongoing processes.
Furthermore, the Contractor intends to improve the reliability of the plant (GAI value) by means of deploying digital APM / monitoring /site engineer during the first year of the contract.
For the reasons above, kindly ask Contracting Authority to confirm that availability improvement target will start 2 years after contract commencement date (using the data of the previous 12 months).

Technical documentation, Article 5.5.1 Availability
Clarification request:
The reliability baseline of 95.71% is obtained by taking into account only Employers issues as assessed by the Employer (TEŠ) and as indicated in the cells K1L1M1 of appendix I.
Furthermore, some events in Employers issues includes the scope which is not covered by the Contract.
However, the calculation of availability during the Contract Term as per Article 5.5.1 will be done taking into account contractor issues only.
For the reasons above 95.7% reliability baseline cannot be accepted.
Please note that such topic requires a deeper analysis of the Appendix I in direct discussion between tenderers and Contracting Authority. Kindly ask you to review our comments and accept our proposal for discussion about reliability baseline during phase 2 of the bidding process.

11.3 OTHER PROVISIONS FOR DRAWING UP A REQUEST TO PARTICIPATE/A TENDER
11.3.1 Joint request to participate/joint tender
Clarification request:

In case of group of economic operators (consortium) between two or more legal entities it is necessary to have clear split between:
- onshore portion (i.e., supply of equipment and performance of services in the Slovenian territory)
- offshore portion (supply of equipment and performance of services outside the territory of Slovenia)
and in the same way it is critical to have separate invoicing and separate payment for onshore and offshore portions.

Hereby we would like to clarify that the offshore scope has to be invoiced separately by the offshore entity because profits and income derived by non-resident entities are taxed outside Slovenia and these entities are not registered for VAT purposes in Slovenia. The onshore scope is granted to the Slovenian entity which is subject to Corporate Income Tax and to VAT in Slovenia. The taxation regime of the split will follow the Tax Treaty in force between Slovenia and the country where that entity is established.

Kindly ask you to revise Tender Dossier and Appendix No. 1 - Pro Forma Invoice in the way that group of economic operators (consortium) can present onshore and offshore prices and to confirm that from same reason group of economic operator, after contract award, will be able to issue separate invoices for onshore and offshore scope.

Kindly ask you to confirm that Contractor needs only to replenish the parts which he will take from the not mandatory spare parts stock and/or from the mandatory spare parts stock for the performance of its obligation under this contract, and that any parts not taken from Contractor from this stock will be replenished by Customer.

ODGOVOR
The Contractor will need to replenish the parts which he will take from the non-mandatory spare parts stock and/or from the mandatory spare parts stock. However if certain part is taken from the stock by the Employer or a third party (i.e. not the Contractor), it will not be the Contractor's obligation to replenish this part to the stock.

It is important, however, that the Contractor will initially provide the full mandatory spare parts stock. In order to achieve this, during Phase 2 the qualified Tenderers will be invited to site and will review the current state of spare parts stock as an on-site checkup against the already provided existing TEŠ spare parts list. On this basis the qualified Tenderers will during Phase 2 provide the Employer with mandatory spare parts list and indicate, which of these parts are already on stock at site and which not. As soon as possible after having signed the contract, the Contractor will provide any additional inventory for parts designated as mandatory spare parts that is not currently on stock, while any such additional inventory is included in the offered price.

- A.4 & F.2 "LUBECO heating Surfaces" all pressure parts should be treated the same way. As replacement of pressure parts is less likely & unpredictable and therefore difficult to budget at a tendering phase, it is better suited to categorize those items as Inspect and Repair as per RFP.

VPRAŠANJE IN ODGOVOR:
In relation to the General Part clause 9.2;

- Based on experience , Bidder would think a value of 7% of Contract Price instead of 10% would be more appropriate. Kindly please confirm this approach

TEŠ agrees for Performance Security to amount to 7 % of the total contract price (instead of 10 % of the total contract price). Article 9.2 of the General Part and the corresponding Appendix 12 will be modified accordingly.


- Bidder's understanding is that renewal of the bond is once per year, therefore please confirm the last paragraph is replaced by the following:
" If the Owner makes a claim under a Performance Security, the Contractor shall at the beginning of the following year either (1.) hand over an
amendment to the existing Performance Security so as to provide the same 7 per cent ratio between the guarantee amount and the contract price or (2.) hand over a new performance security in the amount that was withdrawn under existing Performance Security so that the aggregate guarantee amount remains at the same 7 per cent ratio between the guarantee amount and the contract price."

TEŠ agrees that replenishment of Performance Security after a claim thereunder is made occurs once pe year, however this should not occur by handing over the annex/a new performance security at the beginning of the following year but rather 45 days before the end of the year with the validity only from the beginning of the following year onwards. Therefore the paragraph in question within Article 9.2 of the General Part is replaced by the following:
If the Owner makes a claim under a Performance Security, the Contractor shall no later than 45 days before the end of the year either (1.) hand over an annex to the existing Performance Security so as to provide the same 7 per cent ratio between the guarantee amount and the contract price or (2.) hand over a new performance security in the amount that was withdrawn under existing Performance Security so that the aggregate guarantee amount remains at the same 7 per cent ratio between the guarantee amount and the contract price, whereas in either case such annex to the existing Performance Security or the new performance security will be valid only from the beginning of the following year onwards.


In relation to the General Part clause 9.3;

- Bidder's understanding is that renewal of the bond is once per year, therefore please confirm the last paragraph is replaced by the following:
" If the Owner makes a claim under a Performance Guarantee Security, the Contractor shall at the beginning of the following year either (1.) hand over an amendment to the existing Performance Guarantee Security increasing the guarantee amount so as to provide the amount of EUR 4,000,000.00(in words: four million euro) (i.e. the Contractor will replace the withdrawn amount) or (2.) hand over a new performance guarantee security in the amount that was withdrawn under existing Performance Guarantee Security so that the aggregate guarantee amount remains EUR 4,000,000.00 (in words: four million euro)."

TEŠ agrees that replenishment of Performance Guarantee Security after a claim thereunder is made occurs once per year, however this should not occur by handing over the annex/a new performance guarantee security at the beginning of the following year but rather 45 days before the end of the year with the validity only from the beginning of the following year onwards. Therefore the paragraph in question within Article 9.3 of the General Part is replaced by the following:
If the Owner makes a claim under a Performance Guarantee Security, the Contractor shall no later than 45 days before the end of the year either (1.) hand over an annex to the existing Performance Guarantee Security increasing the guarantee amount so as to provide the amount of EUR 4,000,000.00 (in words: four million euro) (i.e. the Contractor will replace the withdrawn amount) or (2.) hand over a new performance guarantee security in the amount that was withdrawn under existing Performance Guarantee Security so that the aggregate guarantee amount remains EUR 4,000,000.00 (in words: four million euro), whereas in either case such annex to the existing Performance Guarantee Security or the new performance guarantee security will be valid only from the beginning of the following year onwards.


In relation to Appendix 12;

- Guaranteed Amount and Currency: along with the comment above on 9.2, Bidder would propose 7% of Contract Price

TEŠ agrees, thus Appendix 12 will be amended to state [7 % of total Contract Price in] EUR [] (in words [] euro). opposite to Guarantee Amount and currency.


- Any documents required in support of demand for payment, apart from the supporting statement explicitly required in the text below: "None"
Bidder would like to have the chance to cure the breach before, therefore kindly please replace "none" by the following:

"Copy of the notification dated at least 30 days prior to the demand for payment sent by the Beneficiary to the Applicant notifying the Applicant of its
breach and asking the Applicant to remedy such breach within time for remedial actions as per Contract terms.

TEŠ agrees and Appendix 12 will be amended accordingly. However due to the extension in general timing concerning the Performance Security this change represents, TEŠ will change all the corresponding deadlines for bond validity and enforceability from 30 to 90 days and the corresponding deadlines for bond renewal from 14 to 45 days, both in Article 9.2 of the General Part and in Appendix 12 thereto.


- Please confirm the language can be English as well

TEŠ agrees, thus Appendix 12 will be amended to state Slovenian or English opposite to Language of any so required documents.


In relation to Appendix 13;

- Any documents required in support of demand for payment, apart from the supporting statement explicitly required in the text below: "None"
Bidder would like to have the chance to cure the breach before, therefore kindly please replace "none" by the following:

"Copy of the notification dated at least 30 days prior to the demand for payment sent by the Beneficiary to the Applicant notifying the Applicant of its
breach and asking the Applicant to remedy such breach within time for remedial actions as per Contract terms.

TEŠ agrees and Appendix 13 will be amended accordingly. However due to the extension in general timing concerning the Performance Guarantee Security this change represents, TEŠ will change all the corresponding deadlines for bond validity and enforceability from 30 to 90 days and the corresponding deadlines for bond renewal from 14 to 45 days, both in Article 9.3 of the General Part and in Appendix 13 thereto.


- Please confirm the language can be English as well

TEŠ agrees, thus Appendix 13 will be amended to state Slovenian or English opposite to Language of any so required documents.


In relation to both Appendix 12 & 13:

- Please confirm the 2 bonds (appendix 12 and 13) will not be double dipping due to Contract Price actually including already component linked to Target Improvement (appendix 13)

TEŠ confirms that certain claim could be made only either under Performance Security or under Performance Guarantee Security, not under both (no double dipping). Performance Security thus does not cover the damages payments (or related) Contractors obligations under Guaranteed Performance Commitments, i.e. under Chapter 5.5 of Technical Documentation.

In relation to both Appendix 12 & 13:

- Please confirm the 2 bonds (appendix 12 and 13) will not be double dipping due to Contract Price actually including already component linked to Target Improvement (appendix 13)


ODGOVOR
TEŠ confirms that certain claim could be made only either under Performance Security or under Performance Guarantee Security, not under both (no double dipping). Performance Security thus does not cover the damages payments (or related) Contractors obligations under Guaranteed Performance Commitments, i.e. under Chapter 5.5 of Technical Documentation.

VPRAŠANJE
Related to Appendix 2 of General Conditions, package 3 DCS, Bidder might be interested in buying back some of Owner 's current DCS spare parts after DCS migration occurs. In case this is possible, kindly please confirm if an additional price row to package 3 DCS could be added to reflect this possibility of buying back DCS parts

ODGOVOR
If the Contractor will be interested in doing so, it could, taking into account DCS migration, during the Term buy the existing TEŠ's DCS system as a whole (and not only certain spare parts from it). Appendix 2 of the General Part will be amended accordingly to reflect this option.

Before end of Phase 2 TEŠ will obtain an independent market valuation of DCS system and inform the qualified bidders thereof. Either the Tenderer is interested or not in such a purchase, it shall clearly indicate this in Appendix 2. The price for such purchase shall be the same as the existing DCS system market valuation and shall be netted against DCS migration price. If the Tenderer is not interested in such a purchase, nevertheless for calculation and scoring purposes the market valuation of the existing DCS system shall be deducted from the DCS migration price.
