Atomic energy is an important energy source in Ukraine. As such, equipment performance reliability is crucial. Currently, Ukrainian nuclear power plants are replacing obsolete systems to ensure that high reliability is maintained. Radiy’s top priority is to support this modernizing effort. The company is motivated to design and manufacture equipment that addresses obsolescence problems at Ukrainian nuclear facilities.
On August 20-21, Factory Acceptance Testing (FAT) was completed for control panels designed to replace the obsolete turbine cycle feedwater heaters’ control panels at Zaporozhye NPP Unit 4. These control panels provide for automation equipment (i.e., protection, interlock, alarm, and automatic and remote control functions) for turbine cycle feedwater heaters.
The purpose of FAT was to make sure Radiy’s equipment fully complied with the customer’s technical requirements. The equipment was subjected to functionality testing to validate the system performance characteristics.
The FAT commission included representatives of Zaporozhye Nuclear Power Plant, Radiy designers, and production specialists.
The comprehensive testing proved that the equipment fully complies with all the Ukrainian regulatory requirements for nuclear and radiation safety.
The new equipment was delivered to the customer in August 2018.
Radiy’s solutions are proven in use.
