Tech/Engineering / power plant specifications
French term or phrase: courbes de correction
In a call for tender for the construction of a diesel power plant, the stipulations concerning how the fuel prices will be adjusted yearly includes the following:
"Le Promoteur ne sera pas évalué sur la base d’une Consommation Spécifique garantie pour chaque année pendant la durée du Contrat dans des conditions garanties de facteur de charge et de température moyenne ambiante. Ainsi, , les courbes de correction de la Consommation Spécifique pour la Centrale aux températures ambiantes et aux facteurs de charge qui sont différentes des conditions prévues par XXX et présentées à titre indicatif dans ce document d’appel d’offres ne seront en aucun cas tenues en compte dans l’ajustement période de la Composante de Combustible."
Are these "courbe de correction" better translated as "correction curves", "equalization curves" or something else (in UK English) TIA!
