Framatome has efficiently accomplished commissioning for a undertaking to modernize the protection Instrumentation & Control system in unit three of the Forsmark nuclear energy plant operated by the Swedish utility Forsmarks Kraftgrupp AB, a subsidiary of Vattenfall.
Under this contract, Framatome has provided a brand new neutron flux measuring system, supplied the qualification testing and put in the parts. The contract additionally included engineering and associated providers to carry out the common purposeful system exams in addition to the required improve of the simulator.
The new I&C assemblies for the neutron flux wide selection monitoring system have been designed and manufactured as modules and put in into the present cupboards on website. The modular design with versatile mechanical integration resolution makes the system very versatile relevant in all boiling water reactor vegetation worldwide. The wide selection system displays the neutron flux within the reactor core throughout downtime in addition to plant start-up and shut-down operations, contributing to plant security throughout these working phases.
“The profitable undertaking in Sweden proves our competence to offer I&C upgrades worldwide to totally different reactor varieties. In Forsmark we used our particular know-how in boiling water reactors which incorporates not solely the supply of the parts but additionally service to assist set up, simulator integration, coaching and commissioning”, mentioned Frédéric Lelièvre, Senior Executive Vice President accountable for Sales, Regional Platforms and the Instrumentation and Control Business Unit at Framatome.
Forsmark three is a boiling water reactor with an put in internet capability of 1,170 megawatts. The reactor began industrial operations in 1985 and is positioned within the East coast of Sweden, roughly 100 kilometers north of Stockholm. (Source: Framatome)
