Companies that operate America’s nuclear energy facilities are partnering on a multiyear strategy to transform the industry and ensure its viability for consumers as well as its essential role in protecting the environment. This strategic plan, called Delivering the Nuclear Promise: Advancing Safety, Reliability and Economic Performance, is designed to strengthen the industry’s commitment to excellence, assure future viability through efficiency improvements, and drive regulatory and market changes so that nuclear energy facilities are fully recognized for their value. At AREVA, we understand that a business as usual approach will not work.
Through various programs, products and services, we are constantly developing new technologies to reduce total cost of ownership and keep nuclear plants viable. We stand ready to help you develop an innovative, predictable and cost-effective plan to reduce Operations & Maintenance (O&M) costs, optimize refurbishment plans, better predict equipment failure, develop asset health and risk consequence analysis, and address 10 CFR 50.69.
AREVA is also helping our customers preserve their assets with existing and proven solutions for baffle bolt inspection, repair and analysis and driving market improvements with solutions such as cavitation peening. We are also dedicated to helping utilities meet their outage goals during and between outages, thanks to AREVA’s experience from conducting more than 110 outages a year on nearly all types of reactors worldwide. Constantly looking forward, AREVA is also ushering in the next evolution of nuclear fuel with its near- and long-term EATF designs.
Security Effectiveness Evaluation Software
AREVA’s Security Effectiveness Evaluation Software or SEES can assist in providing a solution to effectively protect plant systems from sabotage threats. SEES is designed to help you reduce cost, in support of Delivering the Nuclear Promise, while strengthening plant security. SEES offers exclusive virtual force-on-force evaluations and generates evaluation documentation with substantially less effort than traditional methods.
Data Analytics Solution for the Nuclear Industry
AREVA and IBM have teamed up deliver a data analytics solution to the nuclear industry. Built from industry leading IBM business analytics software powered by Watson IoT, the platform brings together in one solution a core set of powerful capabilities as well as building blocks for new energy analytics applications.
10 CFR 50.69
AREVA delivers unparalleled capabilities to support the development and execution of Risk Informed Engineering Programs — 10 CFR 50.69 and more. Our team includes licensing, PRA, system engineering, operations, and asset cost optimization expertise.
AREVA has developed a Modular Remote Monitoring System for Critical Infrastructure Applications, implementing a near real-time monitoring solution for multiple applications including, physical security, tamper indication, fire detection, leak detection, environmental controls, physical location tracking, and emergency accountability tracking.
Commercial Grade Dedication
Mounting cost pressures are causing utilities to use Commercial Grade Dedication (CGD) as a means to reduce costs. At the same time, regulatory drivers and increased oversight can increase execution and compliance costs. To address these conflicting demands, AREVA is leading the industry with turnkey CGD services that can help decrease utilities’ risks, lower costs, improve execution efficiency and reduce lead times through economies of scale.
AREVA offers reverse engineering as a cost-effective and efficient way to address obsolescence and maintain system safety and reliability. For obsolete small safety and non-safety related I&C systems, AREVA can provide custom solutions to meet site-specific needs for a design that delivers the same capabilities as well as system enhancements where desired.
