Our Solution Enables Proactive Asset Management
In an industry challenged by lower-priced electricity options, new approaches are needed to remain viable. This is what the Nuclear Promise Initiative is designed to deliver, and AREVA is staying ahead of the curve to meet this challenge for the BFB issue. With the analytical methodology for BFB re-examination intervals (WCAP-17096) being challenged, and repair campaigns slow and hard to economically justify, there is a clear need for risk-informed decision-making rather than more costly shotgun approaches. AREVA’s probabilistic analytical method is the only approach that is proven, accepted, and effective in delivering optimized bolt replacement patterns, re-examination intervals, and bolt examination sampling schemes.
