The final date and time for the submission of bids is 12/08/2020 at 11:00 BST. DO NOT apply directly to the buyer. All tender information MUST be submitted through the Delta eSourcing Portal. Brief Description of Requirement A next-generation light source test facility is to be constructed at the Science and Technology Facilities Council's (STFC) Daresbury Laboratory, which will be known as CLARA (Compact Linear Accelerator for Research and Applications). The aim of the CLARA project is to develop a normal conducting test accelerator capable of generating longitudinally and transversely bright electron bunches and to use these bunches in the experimental production of stable, synchronised, ultra-short photon pulses of coherent light from a single pass FEL (Free Electron Laser) with techniques directly applicable to the future generation of light source facilities. STFC requires 2 klystrons along with magnet circuit assemblies and associated X-ray shielding, capable of delivering at least 8 MW of RF peak power (preferably 10 MW) with a pulse width of up to 2.5 ┬Ás and capable of repetition rates up to 100 Hz to be incorporated within a klystron modulator for the CLARA 4th Harmonic Cavity. This specification concerns the manufacture, testing, delivery to Daresbury Laboratory, and documentation of 2 klystrons and associated circuit including X-ray shielding.
