ICN - Pitesti


Main research areas:

  • Modernization of the instrumentation and control equipment (I&C) for Cernavoda NPP based on methodologies, guides and practices provided by the IAEA technical documents; implementation of the requirements imposed on the digital equipment I&C intended to replace the analogical type;
  • Upgrading the equipment produced in previous years whose production and merchandising is no longer possible due to obsolescence or expiration of the competent authorities approval (BRML, CNCAN, Health Ministry);
  • Development of integrated systems in the field of radioprotection and for the information presentation in the control room (technical offices) at the NPP;
  • I&C equipment aging management for the NPP;
  • Implementation of the CAD and CASE means and methods in the information design and integration;
  • Development of radiation detectors.
