About the program

The Vibrations R&D program aims at reducing vibration problems that might affect outages and also cause power reductions. This is obtained through an increased knowledge on measurement, analysis and mitigation of vibrations in key components in the nuclear power plant.

The Vibrations program started in 2014, and is now in its second phase running from 2016 to 2018. Currently the activities are organized in three focus areas:

  1. Vibrations in piping, including valves and pipe supports

  2. Emergency diesel generator (EDG) sets vibrations

  3. Turbine and generator vibrations
