Tecnatom has recently renewed the multicycle automated ultrasound (UT) inspection of Low-Pressure rotors disks for the Brazilian Angra nuclear power plant, after winning an international bidding process called by Eletronuclear.
The new contract comprises the inspection of the LP turbines rotors of Angra NPP Units 1 and 2 for the next five years, to be performed in five different outages.
Tecnatom do Brasil will continue engaged in the works increasing the local contribution up to approximately 80% of the activities, thus due to the investment in inspectors training and equipment during the last years.
Tecnatom has been responsible for these inspections since the ninety’s and has the full confidence of Eletronuclear. These contracts strengthen our presence in the Angra NPP outages and also in other activities in the Brazilian nuclear program.
