Safer and more efficient inspections of the steam generator

Published: 25.01.2018.

Did you know that steam generator inspections could be safer and more efficient?

This is possible if you use the FORERUNNER - developed and manufactured by INETEC.The entire process of inspection is managed remotely, via a single controller and cable, resulting in no human interface and a 30 percent reduction in dose. The FORERUNNER can reach more than 200 tubes in a given stance. Installed and removed with a motorized carriage, the robot engages with the tube and walks out using pneumatically actuated grippers with fail-safe logic.

Six of these will be delivered to AREVA NP this January for deployment that will commence in spring 2018 in the United States.
