Abstract:

ANS and A recommends that WES should buy the Acutronic 684-1 centrifuge and optional items apart from the additional large platform listed in their Proposal 9530A February 1991, subject to Quality Assurance QA procedures which will involve ANS and A in all stages of design, manufacture, installation, commissioning and operation of the centrifuge facility at WES. Matters requiring clarification include the air conditioning and location of the containment structure, the crane and alterations to the existing office and control buildings, and the management structure. ANS and A envisage that their Project Engineer in France will achieve a close collaboration with Acutronic France during the final design process, inspecting and reviewing all phases of design and manufacture within well defined procedures for Quality Assurance. Integrated Quality Assurance will cover the centrifuge, buildings, instrumentation and equipment, the introduction of safe operating procedures, and the management of change. It is anticipated that an outstanding centrifuge with a unique range of capabilities will be in operation under full control by WES by December 1994.
