AREVA has completed the installation of two Spent Fuel Pool Level Instrumentation (SFPLI) systems at the Santa María de Garoña nuclear power plant in Spain. These systems allow operators to ensure that the required level of water is maintained in the used fuel pools, even in adverse conditions.
The installation of AREVA’s SFPLI systems meets the post-Fukushima requirements of the Spanish nuclear safety authority, Consejo de Seguridad Nuclear.
AREVA has already supplied more than 37 of these systems to 13 nuclear utilities worldwide. Developed using VEGA’s Through-Air Radar technology, the SFPLI system is part of AREVA’s Safety Alliance program which offers nuclear operators the most advanced products and services to ensure the safety of their plants.
“We recognized AREVA’s technology as a reliable and competitive solution as part of a project important to the safety of our plant,” said René Fernandez, NUCLENOR’s Technical Services Director.
“This success in Spain reinforces our international leadership in the field of safety-related systems for nuclear power plants,” said Michael Cerruti, Sales Executive Vice-President of AREVA’s Reactors & Services Business Group.
