RAETP Alarm Management System

Type: Obsolescence
Scope of Supply: DESIGN ¦ BUILD ¦ TEST ¦ COMMISSION
Client: EDF Energy – Heysham 1
Key Deliverables: Replacement of RAETP Alarm Management System

Project Overview

The existing RAETP (Radioactive Active Effluent Treatment Plant) alarm panel, (GM5/Panel 001), showed signs of ageing and needed replacing with a new alarm panel with the same functionality and maximum size.

Why AMS?

Through competitive tender, AMS were awarded this work. Previous experience included the work carried out at Hinkley Point A (MPAS90 replacement project) and Hinkley Point B (CCR Hardwired Fire Alarm System) prescribed the model capability and knowledge. The understanding of EDF procedures and quality standards was also advantage.
