Electrabel licenses asset health software for its nuclear power plants

Leading Belgian energy company Electrabel has licensed Ventyx asset health management software to facilitate enhanced equipment reliability at its nuclear power plants.

Electrabel, part of GDF Suez, is implementing the Ventyx SystemIQ software in its three units at the Tihange plant in Wallonia. The software has also been licensed for potential future implementation at four units at Electrabel’s Doel site in Flanders.

Electrabel’s nuclear power stations are described as among the most reliable in the world. In order to maintain this, the company is implementing advanced technology to help automate, manage and track their safety and maintenance processes.

The Web-based SystemIQ software will facilitate system performance monitoring and health reporting at the sites. Designed to automate data collection, the software integrates with supporting applications such as work management, corrective action, condition monitoring and diagnostics, inventory management.

Electrabel is implementing the software to help improve the Tihange plant’s load factor, equipment reliability and compliance with regulations such as the Institute of Nuclear Power Operations (INPO) AP-913 rule.
