Hungary’s Paksi Atomeromu (PAKS) nuclear power plant has selected the CSI 6500 Machinery Health Monitor from Emerson for the real-time machinery protection and predictive monitoring of its eight turbine-generator machine trains.

The PAKS nuclear power plant is the only operating nuclear power station in Hungary, and produces approximately 40 per cent of the electricitygenerated in the country.

Commenting on the deal,  Ferenc Kiszli, head of the I&C Department said: “With the CSI 6500, we will have improved insight into the condition of each turbine-generator and can effectively plan our maintenance activities while knowing our equipment is protected in the event of a failure.”

Each of the 32 CSI 6500 monitors supplied will be integrated with the existing distributed control system at the PAKS plant, whcih will enable the operations and maintenance teams to see real-time protection and prediction monitoring indicators so the effect of process adjustments on machinery health can be evaluated.
