Application of digital I&C systems in nuclear power plants is an important issue which is being widely discussed at focused IAEA Workshops.
On November 19-22, 2019 The Regional Workshop on the application of digital instrumentation and control systems in nuclear power plant was held in Bucharest, Romania. It was hosted by the Government of Romania through the Nuclear Agency and Radioactive Waste. The purpose of the event was to discuss and share practical aspects and experiences concerning the application of modern I&C systems focusing on areas that are deemed to be challenging, including long term operation, the use of commercial I&C products and computer security issues.
Anton Andrashov- global business development director of Radics LLC- attended the Workshop to meet European utilities and engineering companies and share Radics successful I&C modernization experience.
The main target for the attendance of the Workshop and participation in working technical meetings was to understand the status and plans for Cernavoda NPP, Unit 1 modernization and extension to 30 years operation.
In addition to the Workshop Anton Andrashov manages to make a trip to the NPP site to meet I&C managers and introduce I&C solutions based on RadICS FPGA Platform, certified by the U.S. NRC in July, 2019.
