The equipment will allow to control the refueling of nuclear fuel in the reactor compartment of the nuclear power plant. As part of contract implementation, concluded with JSC Central Design and Technological Institute, the Rastr Research Institute of Ruselectronics holding will develop and supply special television systems ST-O-59R for refueling machines of all four NPP power units.

      Key Highlight:

      * A television camera, which is capable of operating under strong gamma radiation up to 10 kGy/hr (106 rad/hr) both in air and water, is placed in the radiation exposure zone.

      Original Press Release:

      Nov. 18 -- Rostec issued the following news release:

      Ruselectronics holding will supply radiation-resistant video surveillance systems to the Akkuyu nuclear power plant under construction in Turkey. The equipment will allow to control the refueling of nuclear fuel in the reactor compartment of the nuclear power plant.

      As part of contract implementation, concluded with JSC Central Design and Technological Institute, the Rastr Research Institute of Ruselectronics holding will develop and supply special television systems ST-O-59R for refueling machines of all four NPP power units.



      Refueling machines are designed to move fuel assemblies to the reactor core and replace spent nuclear fuel with a new one. The television equipment will allow to examine the surface of the fuel rods, inspect the seats for their installation in the reactor, control the extraction and installation of fuel assemblies and perform general monitoring of the refueling machines operation.



      The solution is a closed-circuit television system consisting of transmitting and receiving devices. A television camera, which is capable of operating under strong gamma radiation up to 10 kGy/hr (106 rad/hr) both in air and water, is placed in the radiation exposure zone. The camera is installed on the guidance device and connected to the control unit located in the control room outside the radiation exposure zone. Through the interface, the operator will be able to control camera movement, zoom and focus the image and adjust the built-in camera lighting.
