British corporation Rolls-Royce said Wednesday it had signed a contract with Hinkley Point C for the delivery of safety-critical Bibloc pressure transmitters for the two EPR nuclear reactors currently under construction in Somerset, UK.
Hinkley Point C is the first commercial nuclear power station to be built in the UK in over 20 years. The twin reactors are expected to provide low-carbon electricity for around six million homes. Thousands of jobs and lasting benefits to the UK economy" are among the plant's benefits, Rolls Royce said.
As part of this contract, Rolls-Royce will provide 140 safety classified (K1) Bibloc pressure transmitters. These will conduct flow, level and pressure measurements of the Nuclear Steam Supply System (NSSS).
The delivered pressure transmitters are expected to attain 60 years of operation, which makes them a viable system for nuclear power plants. Bibloc pressure transmitters are designed and manufactured by Rolls-Royce I&C teams based in Grenoble - France. They have already been chosen to be implemented in more than 90 nuclear reactors worldwide.
