Steam Generator Secondary Side Inspection / Foreign Object Search and Retrieval
Integrated and Tailored Secondary Side Inspection / Foreign Object Search and retrieval (SSI / FOSAR Services)
At AREVA, Every Innovation Has a Mission. We continue enhancing our proven technology to provide you ever greater safety, quality, performance and delivery. Our teams get the job done right because we are the leading supplier of steam generator (SG) inspection and maintenance services in the U.S. Our large, permanent staff of maintenance technicians and leaders has successfully completed steam generator work in all primary and secondary sides of both Once Through Steam Generator (OTSG) and Recirculating Steam Generator (RSG) plants.
Incorporating experience from secondary side inspection and FOSAR in nearly 300
steam generators and thousands of loose parts retrieved, you can count on our
responsive personnel to successfully perform SSI / FOSAR that deliver results —
all to help you better understand your steam generators and get back on the
grid during peak demand opportunities. Plus, we tailor our services to your
specific needs and can integrate SSI with other tasks through cross-training to
provide greater value.
next generation secondary side inspection crawler (VIPOR) is ready for deployment
and uses a tracking system to know where it is around the tube bundle of a
steam generator. Comes with multiple
cameras and has a full modular pan and tilt system for crisp images. The pan and tilt system is easily detachable to
allow a deflector head for inner bundle strip delivery.
We continually invest to advance our technology and look for better ways to reduce time and exposure.
