Nuclear Plant Monitoring
We have executed several projects for the nuclear industries – both in relation to facilities that are generating and in relation to decommissioning. Due to confidentiality we cannot say much about what we have done, however one system that we installed was in relation to an active plant and involved the monitoring of key parameters within the plant. The system had a Siemens S7 300 PLC at its core with WinCC at the top end. There were multiple remote I/O outstations, each of these connecting back to the central PLC via Profibus. The WinCC provided the database for data retention, operator visualisation, trending and alarming. The system itself was very straightforward and proved to be very reliable.
