We can effectively address post-Fukushima requirements and area hazards (e.g., Flooding, Earthquake, Fire, Aircraft Crash Events) for any specific plant design.
Plant safety upgrade services, provided by us, can range from safety evaluations to the design, procurement and installation of specific engineered safety features (e.g. Pond Water Package Cooler for UK NPPs).
Our plant safety upgrade experience comprises also engineering solutions for Cernavoda NPP (e.g. Condenser Cooling System Upgrade) and for Chernobyl NPP (e.g. Monitoring system for the plant sarcophagus) and Post-Fukushima specific skids for Emergency Spent Fuel Ponds Cooling and Reactor Re-Pressurization for UK AGR fleet.
Our approach to Post Fukushima Stress Test Programs is to establish a technical team composed by experts in different disciplines including among the others Licensing, Process Systems, Electrical, Control and Instrumentation, Layout, Civil Structural and mechanical engineering. The team, after reviewing the plant licensing design basis is called to identify the SSC performing safety functions, analyse protection measures and finally propose the modifications for improvements as resulting from the identification of the weak points and cliff edge effects.
Following the above approach we performed the "Stress Tests" evaluation for Cernavoda Units 1&2 NPPs (Romania). The aim of the program was to check the ability of the Cernavoda nuclear power plant to withstand damage from area hazards such as earthquakes, flooding and fire and define possible improvements where needed.
