New I&C Systems at Doel pass final site acceptance test

Framatome’s digital instrumentation and control (I&C) systems at the Doel nuclear power station in Belgium have passed a final site acceptance test, marking completion of the project to modernise the control and emergency systems at Units 1 and 2.

As part of the project, the French nuclear company designed, manufactured, tested and installed its Teleperm XS digital platform, which it said will improve plant safety and support long-term operation.

The Doel and Framatome teams installed Teleperm XS in the emergency control rooms at Units 1 and 2. The system controls and monitors the nuclear safety equipment, reinforcing the security of the plant.
