Alternative Indication Centre (AIC) – SCADA System Upgrade

Type: Obsolescence
Scope of Supply: DESIGN ¦ BUILD ¦ REVERSE ENGINEER ¦ INSTALLATION ¦ COMMISSION
Client: EDF Energy – Hinkley Point B
Key Deliverables: SCADA system

Project Overview

The existing AIC SCADA system was based on two dual-redundant network processors (VAX) which are now obsolescent. AMS partnered with Servelec Controls (Now ITI) to deliver a new SCADA system that mimics the functionality of the existing system while making use of COTS equipment, design decisions and constraints arrived on previous EDF SCADA Systems.

Why AMS?

AMS have a long and successful project history with HPB; notwithstanding familiarity with EDF procedures and the relevant experience there remains a great deal of trust and understanding between HPB and AMS. HPB also understand that AMS can successfully lead/ manage collaborations with other EDF suppliers.
