Improved execution of nuclear I&C projects
Fortum has a background as a nuclear power plant operator and a license holder with experience of many I&C modernisation projects and I&C design in newbuild projects. This gives us unique insights in the client’s and end-user’s perspective. We have years of experience, extensive know-how regarding I&C licensing and modernisation in a demanding regulatory environment, and we are familiar with the European perspectives and standards. Through the modernisation projects, we have gained knowledge of various methods for project and delivery execution, and we can help our customers avoid the most common pitfalls and challenges.
Proactive planning and addressing potential issues in the project development phase with Fortum’s support will secure smooth execution of the design and implementation phase of the project. Early phase support in conceptual design enables our customer to accomplish clear work packages and efficient implementation without unplanned iterations in the later project phases.
The utilisation of a simulator in I&C projects helps to discover errors in design and system connections earlier in the project, decreases the field test length by allowing testing with the process model, and enables early involvement of the power plant operators.
Fortum is independent of the I&C technology suppliers, but we have extensive experience of working with the key suppliers and are familiar with their most common practices and solutions.
