Project Background:
Certain pressure relief devices (PRD) in CCP 1, CCP 2, and Utility Generation at the Vacaville site require recreation of calculations typically included with turn-over packages (TOP). These calculations are needed for a complete history of sizing, installation, maintenance, and inspection status, for PRDs, and must be filed within existing equipment TOPs. These calculations must be certified by a licensed professional engineer in the state of California in the relevant field (process and/or mechanical). There are approximately 1000 plus PRD’s in CCP 1, CCP 2, and Utility areas (Bldg. 2 and respective distributions).
Scope of Work
1. Prepare the Scope of Work for the 3rd Party Process Engineering and Consulting that will be calculating and recommending the selection of the PRD’s, and conduct the bidding process leading to an award – 60 man-hours

2. Review and approve the methodology of the calculations that include pressure/vacuum relief scenarios – 20 man-hours

3. Prepare the required calculations support information that includes, but not limited to, P&IDs, vessel and equipment certified drawings and data sheets, processing materials physical properties and safety data, pump curves, control valve and pressure regulator sizing and data information – 270 man-hours

4. Develop and approve the calculation template and summary – 24 man-hours
