Aging Management Review and Programs for systems, structures, and components: long term operation
Many different aging and degradation mechanisms are constantly at work on equipment and buildings. Fatigue cycles accelerate aging and can limit the remaining component lifetime. Framatome's Aging Management enables long-term operation by ensuring the safety of your power plant. Our comprehensive plant status assessment has already been successfully applied to a number of nuclear power plants (NPPs) worldwide. It provides the basis for long-term operation (LTO) and the implementation of an effective plant life management program.
