On January 23-24, 2018 specialists from PC RPC Radiy conducted qualification type testing on electric distribution cabinets (EDCs). The focus of the type testing was to verify that the modifications made to the EDC design were both correct and sufficient. The type testing was conducted on 6 types of EDCs designed and manufactured by PC RPC Radiy.
The modifications were made to the original EDC design in order to implement the requirements of regulatory rules NP 306.2.202-2015 and National Operator's standards SOY NAEK 100:2016. The type testing validated that the new EDC design meets these requirements.
The qualification type testing commission included representatives from SS Khmelnitskiy NPP, SS Zaporozhye NPP, South Ukraine NPP, Rovno NPP, Operator of Ukrainian NPPs NNEGC "Energoatom," State Scientific and Technical Center for Nuclear and Radiation Safety, and Radiy's specialists.
The type testing results confirmed that all 6 EDCs meet the technical requirements provided in TS Y31.2-14312430-073:2007 and Ukrainian regulations on nuclear radiation and safety.
