Our equipment has endured earthquake tests at 30 G!
Our material was successfully subjected last month to 30 G stress levels last month!
Following the obsolescence of the existing equipment developed in the 1980s, EDF entrusted us with the redesign of electronic modules for the safety of nuclear reactors. This equipment is intended to be installed in the K3 zone of a nuclear power plant, under severe conditions, in an environment where seismic tremors are possible. The tests carried out in January simulated the effects of these tremors.
Since 2017, our Marseille Agency has been carrying out site surveys, specifications, design and manufacture of qualification prototypes. In 2020, the equipment underwent qualification according to RCCE 2012 and CRT 80C012: electromagnetic compatibility tests, climatic tests, mechanical ageing tests, extended operation tests for 2,000 hours at 50°C; and seismic tests.
Next step: the official qualification of the equipment. Congratulations to the entire team in Marseille!
