RFP339872-SC – Sources Sought – Fabrication of CTTS

Jan 24, 2023 | Sources Sought

Fabrication of the Cryomodule Tunnel Transportation System.  Looking for interested vendors to fabricate a single pice of equipment that performs all functions and fulfills all the below requirements.  Interested vendors please respond:

A multi-machine solution could take the form of the design solution utilized for Fermilab Main Injector dipole magnets, with the following components:

  • A tugger component that moves the cryomodule load longitudinally (i.e. along the length axis of the cryomodule) down the PIP-II enclosure aisle.
  • Transport Carts and Tongue that serve as the interface between the cryomodules adapter plates, the Tugger, and the enclosure floor. The two Transport Carts could work in tandem to transport the cryomodules.
  • Adapter Plates that serve as the interface between the cryomodules and the Transport Carts. Every series of cryomodule has slightly different interfaces. Four style of adapter plates would be needed.
  • An Installation Cart that would be a separate unit that will transversely move the cryomodules towards the beamline and allows for the load handoff to the permanently-installed cryomodule stands.
