The 14th Annual Inspection, Testing and Maintenance Session was held on April 7th at the Tecnatom headquarters in San Sebastián de los Reyes. The event was attended by numerous representatives of all the Spanish nuclear power plants, Iberdrola and ENUSA.
This traditional session serves as a framework for the presentation of the main technological novelties and technical evolutions in the field of inspection and testing equipment developed by Tecnatom, as well as to gain an in-depth insight into the expectations and needs of the plants.
This edition dealt with a series of highly varied issues, such as the results and indicators of refuelling outages in 2015, the maintenance and setting of pressuriser and other safety valves and the diagnosis of air and motor-operated valves.
In addition, the session included the formal presentation of a new inspection system for the visual and volumetric inspection of reactor vessel internals. Those attending witnessed a practical demonstration of this equipment, known as ROBBIN, as well as of several other inspection equipment developments.
