Upgrade of polar crane control systems at NPP
The article discusses the features of a project to upgrade the relay-contactor control systems of operating polar cranes at NPP reactor sections. One of the distinctive features of the project, which defines the scheme-technical solutions, the choice of components and work methodology, is the location of control cabinets at hermetic zone.
Control system for the experimental multipurpose test chamber
The article describes the control system for an experimental multipurpose test chamber for developing the basic MOXfuel production processes. The challenge faced by the developers was to find a modern and reliable solution ensuring personnel safety and high accuracy of mechanism positioning.
Information and analytical system to control the liquid radioactive waste treatment complex at Kola nuclear power plant
A unique project for the automation of the liquid radioactive waste treatment complex(LRWTC) was implemented at the Kola NPP within the program of the internationalcooperation on nuclear safety. The state-of-the-art treatment technologies which haveno analogs in the world are designed to recover the liquid radioactive waste from thestorage tanks and remove the radionuclides. In accordance with the adopted FederalTarget Program, the development of the industry involves the distribution of the similarprojects within the framework of international cooperation on increase in safety andreliable operation of the nuclear power plants. Due to the LRWTC, the Kola NPP will beable, within ten years, to fully get rid of the liquid radioactive waste accumulated fromthe beginning of the plant operation.
