Explain your proposal in english, attach documents if needed and support the idea focusing on the following key drivers:
Presentation of the proposal, outline and how the technology works;
Development stage (Under lab-scale development / Under development for practical use / Implemented for practical use);
Technical comparison between SF6 insulated equipment and the equipment with the proposal technology. Pros and cons;
Environment impact of the proposed technology;
Current performance indicating voltage level, breaking capacity value and dimensions;
Past record of application for similar purposes (such as technical papers or other documentation for introducing your developed product);
Issues expected toward application of this project;
Sample testing conditions:
Available sample quantity;
Pilots realized : pilots with type test realized in accredited laboratory (Attach dossier)
Pilot installed in field:
Date, company, location
Technical information about the equipment
Maintenance of the equipment with the new technology
Activities and periodicity;
Possible legal considerations.
Prospect for scaling up
The proposals will be admitted until October 15th, 2018 and the evaluation will start after this date.
In the Annex “CSA innovationbyvendors” you can find the complete Regulation of the Challenge, that you will accept once you submit your solution to this challenge.
What happens next?
An Enel technical panel will evaluate the response using the following criteria:
Overall scientific and technical merit of the proposed approach;
Approach to proof of concept or performance;
Potential for proprietary position (i.e., is the technology novel or protectable);
Economic potential of concept;
Respondent’s capabilities and related experience;
Realism of the proposed plan and cost estimates.
Once suitable proposals will be identified Enel will reserve the opportunity to assign a direct contract to one or more than one Supplier regarding the following activities:
Type Testing execution;
Supply of prototypes of the above mentioned equipment;
Installation and site tests;
Follow up and monitoring of the equipment behavior during a specified time (e.g. 2 years).
By submitting a response, you acknowledge that Enel reserves the sole and absolute right and discretion to select for award all, some, or none of the responses received for this announcement. Enel also may choose to select only specific tasks within a proposal for award. Enel has the sole and absolute discretion to determine all award amounts. Enel will contact respondents with highly responsive proposals for next steps.
