Description

The ED and D described in this report provide technical data on the performance of all critical components of the APT facility. Results are compared with requirements given. This data will be utilized to establish confidence in the design, in the predicted plant availability, and to reduce cost when the data warrants design simplification. Thus, if at a later date it is decided to build the APT plant, this will allow the facility to be built correctly the first time, on schedule, without recourse to costly over-design. It should also speed the commissioning process and ensure that full capacity production ... continued below

Description

The ED and D described in this report provide technical data on the performance of all critical components of the APT facility. Results are compared with requirements given. This data will be utilized to establish confidence in the design, in the predicted plant availability, and to reduce cost when the data warrants design simplification. Thus, if at a later date it is decided to build the APT plant, this will allow the facility to be built correctly the first time, on schedule, without recourse to costly over-design. It should also speed the commissioning process and ensure that full capacity production is attained on schedule. The planning process used to develop the elements of the CTP has been described. This program is expected to provide the needed data within the projected schedule and resources. Specific schedules for delivery of data and descriptions of the needed data are contained in the Design Data Needs. The total cost of the ED and D program is on the order of 10% of the project cost and is considered a very good investment. The CTP will be judged a success when the data produced warrants design simplifications that allow reduction of design margins and cost. Present day contingency estimates for the project greatly exceed 10% and it is expected that CTP data will warrant reduction of those contingencies by more than the cost of data production. Even results that do not simplify the design or reduce cost are considered very important and successful if they firmly establish performance, so that the design is validated and the cost certified within the existing contingencies. Nevertheless, there is technical risk in some APT components that warrant careful attention. It is to be expected that some results could be disappointing and may require design changes that increase cost moderately beyond the existing contingencies or cause moderate schedule slips.
