PROJECT OVERVIEW

A new Nitrogen Storage and Vaporisation Plant (NSVP) is being installed at DNB and the existing controls that operate the existing Nitrogen plant are to be reused. AMS’ scope was to utilise the existing controls and indications within the CCR whilst providing an interface which allows the controls and indication to operate with either the old or new plant, thus facilitating commissioning. A secondary part of the project was to design, build, test and deliver valve actuator control panels and valve starter panels to control two new parallel nitrogen isolation valves (per reactor).

OUTCOME / WHY AMS?

AMS’ previous experience in delivering complex C&I systems for the process C&I division of the Central Technical Organisation, along with a competitively priced tender, placed AMS in prime position to deliver this project.

C&I Overlay System

Following the final shutdown and defuelling of Hinkley Point ‘A’, AMS delivered a new and separate C&I ‘overlay’ system to meet the plants monitoring and communication needs for the next phase of decommissioning.

PA System Replacement

The Public Address (PA) system at Hinkley Point ‘A’ was suffering the effects of ageing and obsolescence. AMS were contracted to conduct an optioneering study and to ultimately implement a replacement system.
