British Energy Generation Ltd
Development of software to reduce resources needed to collect data needed for safety cases and lifetime extension assessments
Frazer-Nash has extensive experience in developing bespoke software solutions to facilitate a change in business model.
British Energy Generation Lid required medium and long term predictions of graphite weight loss within their Advanced Gas-Cooled Reactor (AGR) nuclear power stations, in order to support their routine safety cases and lifetime extension assessments.
To collate and process the large amounts of data that are required involves significant financial and manpower resources. The number of predictions our client needed to ensure the safe running of their power stations would not be possible given the level of resources available. Frazer-Nash was therefore asked to propose a solution.
Our first priority was to establish a structured framework that would set standard procedures for the various stages of data production and collation.
