Modernization of RMS

Modernization of RMS

Production, supply and installation supervision of the radiation monitoring system at Unit 2. Training of personnel.

Kola NPP is the only one in the world located above the Arctic Circle. Sometimes the equipment at Kola NPP works in extremely low temperature conditions. Under such conditions, the reliable operation of not only power plants, but also of all monitoring and safety systems must be ensured. In 2018, SPC Doza has upgraded the radiation monitoring system of Unit 2 at Kola NPP taking into account these requirements and in connection with the need to maintain compliance of RMS with periodically tightening radiation safety requirements .

In the process of modernization on the basis of an automated radiation monitoring system UDKS-01 "Pelikan", specialists of SPC Doza:
- manufactured and supplied 30+ various radiation monitoring units, communication and auxiliary equipment, as well as upper-level equipment for ARMS;
- carried out a full range of installation and commissioning works;
- provided training for personnel in working with the equipment.

Novovoronezh NPP-2 (ordered by OJSC VNIIAM)

R&D to develop the leak tightness detection system for fuel handling machines designed for VVR-440 and VVR-1000 reactors; the system is included in the scope of delivery of the fuel handling machine MPS-1200-UHL4 for units 1 and 2 of Novovoronezh NPP-2

The leak tightness detection system (LTDS) of fuel handling machines designed for VVR-440 and VVR-1000 reactors is designed for preliminary assessment of tightness of fuel elements during reloading operations without holding the elements in casing.

The LTDS implements a method for estimating the tightness of fuel elements based on the activity of Xe-133 released from a fuel bundle when it is removed from the core. During operation, fuel bundles are under high pressure of water in the reactor core; accumulating gaseous decay products create pressure inside fuel elements. If the fuel element if tight, gaseous decay products are hold inside it, only small quantities are released by diffusion through the walls. In non-tight elements the pressure of gaseous decay products is equal to the external pressure. When the fuel bundle is removed from the core, the external pressure drops and radioactive gases, most notably Xe-133, are released from fuel elements for a short time. Radioactive gases find their way into water; during bubbling of area close to fuel bundle surface gases are captured by air vented to the surface. By measuring the activity of gas in the air blow-off we can estimate the degree of tightness of fuel elements, taking into account the fuel burn-up and time elapsed after reactor shutdown.

Composition of LTDS:

  1. Aggregate-and-control unit
  2. Local / remote control panel.
The second LTDS was delivered to OJSC VNIIAM.

North-West Center "SevRAO" - a branch of FSUE "RosRAO", Gremikha settlement

Manufacturing, delivery, installation supervision and commissioning of UDKS-01 “Pelikan”, personnel training.
In the Murmansk region, the removal of spent nuclear fuel is completed that was earlier unloaded from the reactors of nuclear submarines of the Northern Fleet and was temporarily stored at the Gremikha base. In 2006, the implementation of measures to address the problem with spent nuclear fuel in Gremikha began as part of a joint project of Rosatom and the French Atomic Energy Commission. By that time, the fuel had not been removed from the site for 14 years; since 1992, the facility did not meet modern nuclear safety requirements. Removal of nuclear waste began in 2008. Now the fuel has been transferred to the Atomflot base and will subsequently be sent for reprocessing to the Mayak Production Association.

The onshore technical base Gremikha is the only place in the Russian Federation equipped for reloading of nuclear submarines with liquid metal coolant. Now, nuclear scientists have to solve another problem - to unload the coolant from the cores of these reactors accumulated in the territory of the base.

The RMS project is designed to monitor the radiation situation at a temporary storage facility for spent nuclear fuel unloaded from the water-cooled reactors of nuclear submarines of the Northern Fleet.

The project provides 9 monitoring points:

6 detection units DBG-S11D;
3 detection units UDMN-100.
In this project, the installation supervision was carried out by local specialists with the direct guidance of the engineers of SPC Doza; this reduced the cost for the customer and minimized possible errors during installation.

In the process of commissioning, equipment operation was demonstrated and training of the customer’s personnel was carried out.

This is the first successfully completed full cycle project, from design to commissioning, of a criticality accident alarm system at JSC "Mashinostroitelny Zavod" (JSC "MSZ") in the town of Electrostal, Moscow region. We have designed, manufactured, delivered, assembled, adjusted and put into operation the criticality accident alarm system that performs the following functions:

Novovoronezh NPP-2 (ordered by OJSC VNIIAM)

R&D to develop the leak tightness detection system for fuel handling machines designed for VVR-440 and VVR-1000 reactors; the system is included in the scope of delivery of the fuel handling machine MPS-1200-UHL4 for units 1 and 2 of Novovoronezh NPP-2

The leak tightness detection system (LTDS) of fuel handling machines designed for VVR-440 and VVR-1000 reactors is designed for preliminary assessment of tightness of fuel elements during reloading operations without holding the elements in casing.

The LTDS implements a method for estimating the tightness of fuel elements based on the activity of Xe-133 released from a fuel bundle when it is removed from the core. During operation, fuel bundles are under high pressure of water in the reactor core; accumulating gaseous decay products create pressure inside fuel elements. If the fuel element if tight, gaseous decay products are hold inside it, only small quantities are released by diffusion through the walls. In non-tight elements the pressure of gaseous decay products is equal to the external pressure. When the fuel bundle is removed from the core, the external pressure drops and radioactive gases, most notably Xe-133, are released from fuel elements for a short time. Radioactive gases find their way into water; during bubbling of area close to fuel bundle surface gases are captured by air vented to the surface. By measuring the activity of gas in the air blow-off we can estimate the degree of tightness of fuel elements, taking into account the fuel burn-up and time elapsed after reactor shutdown.

Composition of LTDS:

  1. Aggregate-and-control unit
  2. Local / remote control panel.
The first LTDS was delivered to OJSC VNIIAM.

"Rosenergoatom" Concern, Moscow

The automated radiation monitoring system of environment for seven nuclear power stations (175 stations of monitoring), 1997 - 2001.

For the first time in Russia, the automated radiation monitoring system of environment are developed, produced and installed in sanitary - protected areas and radiation-control areas of Balakovskaya, Beloyarskaya, Bilibinskaya, Kalininskaya, Kurskaya, Novovoronezhskaya, Rostovskaya nuclear power stations. The ASMRE for nuclear power stations are developed on the base of multichannel radiation monitoring system, "Atlant-R", with data transmission via the in-site radio network. The ASMRE information is transmitted to the Central ASMRC control panel of the nuclear power station and the Crisis Centre of the "Rosenergoatom" Concern. The problems concerned the operation of the system at very low temperatures (Bilibinskaya nuclear power station,-70 °C instead of rated -60 °), changes of power voltage (up to 23 % instead of the rated values -10 to +15 %) and etc. were withdrawn at commissioning the ASMRC.
