C&I Systems Engineering
|Type:||Plant Life Extension (PLEX)|
|Scope of Supply:||DESIGN ¦ SUBSTANTIATION ¦ BUILD/ TEST ¦ DELIVERY|
|Client:||EDF Energy – Dungeness B|
|Key Deliverables:||16 off Solenoid Valve Control Panels and Backup Air Systems|
The second phase of a 3-phase project saw AMS engineer a solution and subsequently deliver a series of solenoid valve control panels and air receivers to enable the actuation of the Automatic Boiler Depressurisation System (ABDS) valve actuators, as part of the Boiler Lifetime Improvements Project at Dungeness B.
AMS had previous success with the delivery of phase 1 of the project (20 off bespoke instrument cubicles) and were placed in prime position to deliver phase 2 of the project, where AMS’ known expertise in pneumatics systems were utilised.
The particulate and sulphur 35 (S-35) gaseous discharge monitoring panels at Hinkley Point B required upgrades.
EDF Energy – Hinkley Point B
This project involved the design of a modification to valve B/G/90 to provide automatic operation of the valve to overcome the potential local hazards which could prevent isolation of the system if a seismic event were to occur.
