Vision and deliverables

Reduced vibrations and better predictability

The vision of the program is to increase knowledge and awareness on how to avoid vibration problems in Nuclear Power Plants and thereby reduce vibration related disturbances, leading to higher plant availability and better predictability.

Benefits and deliverables

Receivers of expected benefits/deliverables

The receivers are the owner companies and the personnel at the
nuclear power plants (NPPs). The deliverables will be directly used by
he NPP staff in maintenance and in the plant development and
improvement for a safer and more predictable operation of the plants.

Expected benefits

The activities within Vibrations will provide benefits to the owner
companies through higher availability and predictability.
Through increased knowledge there will be less vibration problems in
the NPP’s and as a consequence better availability and predictability.

Expected deliverables

Guideline and recommendation on how to measure pipe vibrations will
be developed. Also best practice on how to analyse and mitigate pipe
vibrations, diesel engine generator sets and turbine/generator
vibrations will be reported. There is a lack of clear standards and
requirements for some equipment in the NPPs today. There will also
be activities to close these gaps.
