Representatives from EnergoService and Hyundai Engineering & Construction held discussions at the EnergoService office today. The main focus of the discussions was on exploring opportunities for collaboration and provision of engineering services by EnergoService in relation to the construction of future nuclear power facilities in Bulgaria.

 

Representatives of EnergoService are participating in the Symposium for Westinghouse suppliers for the construction project of the seventh unit of Kozloduy Nuclear Power Plant

More than 50 Bulgarian companies participated in the Symposium for Westinghouse suppliers for the construction project of the seventh unit of the Kozloduy Nuclear Power Plant with AP1000® (Advanced Passive Reactor) technology. The event took place on February 20th and 21st, 2024, at the Hilton Sofia Hotel, in partnership with the American Chamber of Commerce in Bulgaria

The Symposium was opened by Rumen Radev – Minister of Energy, Delyan Dobrev – Chairman of the Energy Commission, National Assembly, Kenneth Merten – US Ambassador, Alex Nestor – Chairman of the Board of Directors of Kozloduy Nuclear Power Plant-New Builds and Ivan Mihaylov, CEO of AmCham. Senior managers from Westinghouse such as Sean Jones, Oscar Pratt, Ivan Pironkov, Tim Mediat, and Pierre Lepertier provided a detailed overview of the AP1000 technology, the company’s projects in operation in the USA and China, as well as the delivery process and requirements for achieving mutual success

The program continued today with meetings with Bulgarian companies from the energy sector, which could potentially be partners in the project’s future implementation. EnergoService is one of the five companies with which Westinghouse signed a Memorandum of Cooperation at the end of last year, and it is also on their approved suppliers list.

High School Competition on the Topic “Emergency Preparedness – Ensuring Peace of Mind”, held under the motto “Nuclear Energy – Secure Future”, took place at the Energy House in Kozloduy on May 4, 2023.

Students competed in three rounds. Six teams participated, each consisting of five members, from the following schools:

  • Vocational High School “Vasil Levski” – Mizia
  • Vocational High School of Electronics “Petar Bogdan” – Montana
  • Secondary School “Hristo Botev” – Kozloduy

EnergoService has completed a stage of the project “Replacement of portal monitors at Checkpoints-1 and Checkpoints-4” at the Kozloduy Nuclear Power Plant

The GEM™-5 portal monitors from Mirion Technologies have been successfully installed at the Checkpoint-4 of the Kozloduy Nuclear Power Plant. These monitors are designed to detect potential radioactive contamination of personnel passing through the checkpoint. They offer the latest gamma contamination detection capabilities to ensure reliable and accurate monitoring.

Advanced algorithms for “rapid tracking” of background trends provide optimal performance in any radiation environment. The GEM™-5 monitors are fully compliant with the requirements of the IEC61098 standard and have the capability to use an algorithm based on Gaussian/Bayesian statistics, which is in accordance with the ISO 11929:2019 standard.

If contamination is detected, a visual and audible alarm is triggered, and the display shows the quantity and location of the contamination. The system records a database with date and time stamps, indicating the number of measurements performed, the parameters used, error messages, etc. The GEM™-5 monitors are robust, reliable, and extremely easy to operate.

EnergoService extends its gratitude to the personnel of the Kozloduy NPP for their trust, commitment to the implementation, metrological assurance, and commissioning of the GEM™-5 monitors. We appreciate the excellent cooperation during the execution of this initial stage of the contract.

The management of EnergoService also expresses gratitude to colleagues from “EQE Bulgaria” AD and “Atomenergoremont” AD, who provided invaluable assistance during the installation of the monitors and related project activities.
