Cost & Schedule updated Revised (few % change of numbers) Based on a Fully Funded assumption in FY 2005/6 Affect of delay not included –Contract staff (e.g. short term university appointments) costs will increase (unless reassigned) –Reallocate RAL staff –Loose momentum
Collaboration Meeting Technical Solutions - none controversial –Cryo-coolers - –Hydrogen system R&D Careful learning required Should not be done under pressure –RF MoU now exchanged (LBNL waiting for DoE permission) rep rate DAQ design
MICE Issues Plan to review MICE costs before collaboration meeting in late October. This is a MICE initiative; it would be useful as a precursor to any review undertaken at GW2/3. Suggested chair: Mike Johnson (benefits from being UK & RAL but should be seen as disinterested). Various candidates for a review panel are being suggested from collaboration member countries. The purpose it to get all criticism of the MICE costs in private through this MICE review to be ready for a more public scrutiny at GW.
Site Credits: Hall HALL 5.2 – 12mx47m + facilities –£50/m 2 for bare warehouse –£200-300/m 2 for high end facilities –£234/m 2 – research council rate all overheads & cost of capital included Comprares to £205/m 2 CCLRC average –£284/m 2 – equivalent commercial rate £160k pa
Site Credits: ISIS Protons ISIS Operational Cost OC ~ £31M (03/4) Fraction of beam used in a year Np –Operational Days: ~130 –Days of MICE running: ~40 –Fraction of beam consumed: << 2% Cost of Asset: OC × Np £190k
Value of Remaining Asset Muon Beam Line & Infrastructure –£2.5M UK capital investment (incl. VAT) –£0.8M UK staff investment –£2.0-2.5M Asset in Solenoid (cost new) –£0.3M Disposal costs (uncertain) £5.3-5.5M Residual asset value Infrastructure is reduced – no central cryo-plant
Updated Project Risk Analysis Technical Risks are now low –Hydrogen safety – much reduced Design & safety review –Interface with ISIS – much reduced Aperture into ISIS created –Performance risk (lack of) – much reduced Tracker prototyping Financial Risk (Funding) –Remains high
