Commissioning simulator for the Flamanville EPR

Commissioning simulator for the Flamanville EPR

Power | July 2017

Following a particularly positive feedback from the simulator used for the cold and hot tests of the Taishan EPR (China), Areva NP has decided to purchase a similar simulator for the upcoming site tests for the EPR of Flamanville.

This simulator will test and validate the fuel loading and commissioning procedures for the nuclear unit systems provided by Areva NP.

CORYS delivered a first version of the simulator at the end of April, based on the latest design data. This version is installed on a simulation platform at Areva NP in Paris. A second version will be released by the end of the year.
