THE ACCEPTANCE TESTING OF THE ACCIDENT AND POST-ACCIDENT MONITORING SYSTEM FOR UNIT 2 OF RIVNE NPP HAS BEEN CARRIED OUT

At the end of February 2018, the acceptance testing of the accident and post-accident monitoring system (PAMS) for unit 2 of Rivne NPP was carried out at the site of PJSC “SRPA “Impulse”.

PAMS is designated to monitor safety parameters and state of reactor facility’s systems during design and beyond-design accidents at NPPs.

PAMS assures functions of accident and post-accident monitoring at any design-relevant initial events, as well as beyond-design accidents (including those connected with severe damage of fuel).

The aim of the acceptance testing of PAMS was as follows:

  • to define if PAMS meets the requirements of the terms of reference;
  • to check if the design, operational, and program documentation for PAMS meets the requirements of the normative documentation;
  • to assess readiness of PAMS to be supplied to NPP to be installed and commissioned.

Based on the results of the acceptance testing, the commission consisting of representatives of RNPP, SNRIU, LLC “I&C CERTCENTR”, and PJSC “SRPA “Impulse” stated PAMS, as well as the design, operational, and program documentation meet the requirements of the terms of reference and the normative documentation, the system is ready to be supplied to Unit 2 of Rivne NPP.

SRPA “Impulse” is a leading Ukrainian designer, manufacturer, and supplier of highly-reliable instrumentation and control systems for nuclear power engineering and railways.
