Design, supply and installation of filters at the intake of ECCS pumps for two units of Balakovo NPP and one unit of Kalinin NPP

Description

Objectives

Two prototypes of ECCS-pump (Emergency Core Cooling System) intake filters were designed, supplied and installed in the framework of this project, including the budget of project R1.02/96C.

The basic configuration of the intake filters was developed within project R2.08/94. Since the VVER-1000 types at Kalinin and Balakovo (2 types of VVER 1000) are representative for all VVERs in Russia except Novovoronezh 5, the design, supply and installation was realized for these units, enabling Russian Beneficiaries to repeat the supply and installation on other VVER-1000 with their own resources.

This project includes appropriate licensing.

Scope of the project

Apart from the manufacturing of the equipment and spare part, the project included the following activities:

  • Providing the basic design documentation
  • Providing the engineering documentation
  • Assistance to the beneficiary/End User in obtaining the approval of RF GosAtomNadzor
  • Obtaining the Conformity Certificate from AtomCertifica
  • Providing installation, operating and maintenance instructions
  • Development a test programme for the equipment supplied

Implementation of the project

The budget allocated for this Tacis project was 425,000 Euros, and was contracted together with the project R1.02/96C (worth 771,000 Euros). Both contracts were given to Framatome ANP GmbH and become effective in January 2004. After approval of the test programme, the factory acceptance tests were successfully performed at FSU NIKIMT’s premises (subcontractor of Framatome) on May 2005.

The execution of the assembly and installation of pre-manufactured supporting structures, collector and filter modules were performed by WEM (Wolga Energo Montaz). According to the supply contract, Framatome supervised the installation works and paid special attention to the quality improvement of the deficit ridden welded joints.
