Technical Support for Operation and Maintenance of NPPs

Our support for nuclear power plant operators includes a comprehensive set of services from diagnostics and risk-oriented operational control programs directly at power plants through qualification of inspection methods and security analyses to umbrella projects increasing the performance and lifetime of nuclear blocks. We are also profiling in the transfer of international know-how, especially in the field of nondestructive testing.

Programs of operational checks of safety-critical components for existing NPPs and new VVER-type nuclear sources represent a systematic conceptual solution to design, make changes, consider savings options, and compare NPP operational control programs to quantifiable objective criteria computed using PSA.

An integrated approach to risk-oriented operational controls and our participation in the exchange of methodologies on a global scale maintains our services at European leadership. NPP operators bring legitimate economic savings and increased return on investment in energy equipment from a safety perspective.

Our Services

  • Implementation of operational controls at NPP Dukovany and NPP Temelín sites (VT, PT, MT, UT, PAUT, RT)
  • Operational diagnostics of electric and pneumatic actuators
  • Qualification of new inspection methods and procedures (eg RTG inspections on flooded pipelines)
  • Design and production of test bodies with spark-machined and real defects also for qualifying tests
  • Transfer of know-how and current knowledge from the field of non-destructive controls from the world (Russia, USA)
  • Supply of spare parts with special quality requirement according bill 132/2008 Coll. and bill 309/2005 Coll.

Other projects

  • Utility support for licensing of NPP technology beyond the designed lifetime,
  • Demonstration of sufficient margin for safe and reliable operation in long term,
  • Complete update of safety documentation including plant safety report and PSA Study,
  • Support of analyses related to the extension of NPP lifetime,
  • Cooperation in aging management programs and lifetime evaluation.
