Рабочая встреча с представителями Honey Well International    PC “RPC Radiy” has been in a continuous search for optimal solutions, which could improve the manufacturing process and enhance cooperation with international partners — components and material suppliers. Selection of potential suppliers and their approval requires conducting audits and arranging working meetings, as well as providing suppliers with a possibility to get familiarized with the features of the customer’s production.

Thus, on March 16, 2017 PC “RPC Radiy” had a technical meeting with Honeywell International to discuss perspective cooperation in the production of fire safety systems (FSS). Honeywell representatives were particularly interested in the specifics of qualification testing in Ukraine, and also in the manufacturing features of FSS to identify how Honeywell’s sensors can be used in Radiy’s products.

Radiy’s specialists spoke about new technological capabilities and manufacturing innovations of the company. The technical meeting outlined the prospects for joint work between PC “RPC Radiy” and Honeywell International. It has been decided that in the future collaboration between both companies will involve not only sales managers, but also equipment developers.

November 14-21 2016 Radiy’s key engineer/technical director was invited to take part in the IAEA Consultancy Meeting on Independent Engineering Review of I&C Systems (IERICS) in Beijing, China.

IERICS mission was established in 2009 with the aim of conducting peer reviews of I&C design documents, prototype I&C systems, and actual systems already deployed in operating NPPs. The IERICS mission is usually performed by a group of invited subject matter experts from various IAEA Member States. The review is based on IAEA documents, such as Safety Guides and Nuclear Energy Series Reports. The findings are summarized in a mission report, which usually includes a list of recommendations, suggestions, and identified good practices. Organizations in IAEA Member States, such as utilities, regulators, technical support organizations, research laboratories and universities can benefit from I&C technical reviews through IERICS Missions that provide a detailed technical assessment on I&C systems, as well as recommendations for improvement.

This time the IERICS review mission was requested by CNCS and was performed by a team of world known technical experts.

After making a detailed review of the CNCS products the IERICS Mission Group released a review report that presents a detailed assessment of the platform components and provides a list of recommendations and suggestions for further improvements. Good practices identified during the review mission were also listed in the mission report.
