Development, installation and maintenance of the most competitive facilities in the sector
Control rooms are essential for safety and also permit a huge variety of industrial plants to be correctly operated. Within these rooms we can find monitoring elements and vital information for optimum working conditions, which are managed by the operators to ensure the status of the most important equipment in the plant.
These industrial control rooms are especially designed so that the user can deal with any type of emergency that may arise. They also facilitate large scale routine maintenance and checks, which will considerably prolong the service life of the equipment.
All the apparatus and systems which make up the industrial plant are connected to the control room, meaning that the operator receives signals indicating the status of all the equipment. This allows measures on machinery located around the plant to be taken from one place.
At Tecnatom we have more than 30 years of experience providing these types of services, allowing us to guarantee you of our work thanks to our specialised engineering team. This enables us to be in a position to offer our clients personalised solutions, even in industrial environments which have the highest quality demands, as is the case in the nuclear energy sector.
A control room is a really complex project which to be a success requires a variety of disciplines and skills. Prior human factors engineering research must be performed, as well as designing both mechanical and electric equipment, manufacturing it, testing it and finally installing it. We also offer operation interfaces that facilitate tasks, the updating of older equipment and cybersecurity activities.
Tecnatom is a company which has been designing international standard control rooms for the last three decades and belongs to important forums such as the IAEA, NRC and EPRI. This has allowed us to design, among other things, around twenty nuclear plant control rooms and almost a hundred engineering projects related to instrumentation and human factors.
In the last few years we have seen a significant shift from analogue instruments being progressively replaced by their digital equivalents. These offer a variety of advantages, such as large screens which gather information required by operators, with real time instructions to provide large-scale support for the work to be carried out.
Tecnatom is a leader in the updating of analogue equipment and in the supply of new control rooms with the most advanced technological equipment, while bringing the older equipment into today’s world. This is done in accordance with the existing national and international laws, as we are certified to work in over 40 countries.
