Power plant inspection services can help prevent plant accidents and equipment failure, both of which can be extremely dangerous. Aside from putting facility employees at risk, power plant defects can also be extremely dangerous to the environment. MISTRAS has the advanced access capabilities necessary to provide inspection services to assets that are impossible to reach by traditional means.
Flyability has just launched the Elios 3 drone, the first collision-tolerant drone equipped with a LiDAR sensor for indoor 3D mapping. Powered by Flyability’s SLAM (Spatial Localization And Mapping) engine, this drone creates 3D models as it flies. It’s accompanied by Inspector 4.0 software. It’s designed to help inspectors make critical decisions without having to risk their lives.
Unlike traditional inspection methods, Flyability’s drones reduce the exposure to radiation at nuclear power plants. They also increase visual data collection. They can use LiDAR to measure radiation levels in confined spaces. The drones are also collision-tolerant, which means that they can be used in any confined space.
Tetra Engineering provides a wide range of power plant inspection services. Its expertise ranges from conventional boilers to HRSGs. The firm has a global presence and has provided services in more than 50 countries. It also provides expert witness services, steam cycle balance assessments, and due diligence assessments.
As a power plant owner, you will need to ensure the integrity of the equipment in your plant, as the failure of any component can have catastrophic consequences. A reliable NDE service provider can help identify and resolve problems quickly, so that you can avoid costly shutdowns.
MISTRAS provides an array of power plant inspection and monitoring services. These services are designed to help maintain regulatory compliance and avoid catastrophic failures. The company’s comprehensive portfolio of services includes traditional non-destructive examination (NDE) techniques, access services, and balance of plant services. Its solutions help ensure the safe and efficient operation of nuclear power plants.
MISTRAS’s Balance of Plant (BOP) Services ensure that nuclear power plant auxiliary systems are functioning correctly and are not damaged. Because these systems are so crucial to plant operations, they need to be inspected regularly. Often, these assets are difficult to access for regular maintenance due to high temperatures and radiation concerns. Therefore, MISTRAS offers permanently installed monitoring systems to ensure that they are functioning properly and that damage is not occurring.
NUMARK Associates provides technical and regulatory review services to power plants, nuclear agencies, and private industry. It provides services ranging from in-depth assessments of reactor systems to safety evaluations of seismic and structural designs. It also performs inspections on nuclear power plants to ensure their continued operational safety.
NUMARK has recently entered into a new contract with the FANR, the Federal Authority for Nuclear Regulation, in the United Arab Emirates. Under this contract, the company will provide technical assistance to the FANR as it reviews the Barakah Nuclear Power Plant Units 1 and 2 submitted by the Emirates Nuclear Energy Corporation.
