Rod Control for B&W and CE reactors and other reactor types

Framatome performed the first-of-a-kind DCRDCS build and installment at a U.S. nuclear site and has completed the subsequent installations at its second and third units. In addition, Framatome has built and is planning installation and commissioning for a second U.S. customer. Lessons learned from these initial installations have been incorporated into the design for future installations. For example, several of the field interface connections have been redesigned to allow a “plug ‘n play” concept to reduce disassembly, assembly and field installation time. “Plug ‘n play” will also ease any future maintenance activities associated with major components or assemblies.
