Replacement CCR Hardwire Fire Alarm System

Type: Obsolescence
Scope of Supply: DESIGN, BUILD, TEST, DELIVER, INSTALL, COMMISSION
Client: EDF Energy – Hinkley Point B
Key Deliverables: Replacement CCR Hardwired Fire Alarm System

Project Overview

AMS provided a detailed design for a replacement hard wired fire alarm system for Hinkley Point B Nuclear Power Station. The previous hardwired fire alarm system used solid state relays (circa 1975) which were obsolete and no spares are available. Failures within the system could have resulted in the manual shutdown of a reactor.

    Why AMS?

    With a proven track record with the design and implementation of alarm management systems across the fleet, AMS was is in a prime position to deliver a cost effective and professional solution.
