Plant life extension
Ultra Energy can help America secure future power from its historic investments by maintaining safe operation of systems in established nuclear power plants.
The American Nuclear Society's Utility Working Conference 2022 (UWC) is framing the contribution nuclear power makes to reducing carbon emissions with the need to improve plant efficiency and effectiveness to create significant reductions in operating expenses.
The US is a world leader in nuclear construction and critical R&D. Ultra Energy provides proven safety systems supporting the efficient construction of additional low-carbon nuclear-sourced energy. We are accelerating the cost-effective development of advanced reactors with innovative safety solutions based on proven technology.
Comprehensive range of high-integrity temperature and pressure sensors. Multiple series to deliver requirements regardless of installation constraints. Highly experienced global team to deliver the right sensor at the right time. Proven effectiveness with installations in most US nuclear power stations
Ultra Energy’s radiation monitoring solutions detect radiation and alert operators if action is needed. Detect presence of radiation in any media. Monitoring of high-risk areas or across wider areas. Alert operators to take mitigating action or automatically initiate a response.
Our neutron monitoring solutions ensure safe long-term nuclear power generation. ‘Core to control room’ solutions provide actionable information to operators. Full power range of reactors, from start to full power. High temperature detectors support advanced reactor designs.
Continuously monitoring reactor risk factors and triggering safety systems if thresholds are passed. Solutions aligned to reactor specific risk profiles. High integrity systems with multi-layer redundancies. Solutions sustained over the full reactor lifetime.
How we support customers in managing the 'aging and obsolescence' of systems and components, as well as our value in solution development.
EDF Energy operates the UK’s fleet of seven ageing advanced gas-cooled reactor (AGR) nuclear power stations. At the point EDF Energy took ownership, only a small number of spare neutron detectors were available.
Thanks to Ultra Energy, EDF Energy now has a guaranteed supply of critical parts for its AGR power stations so will be able to continue operating them to their extended end-of-life target dates, protecting annual revenue of over $2 billion.
NuScale’s aim to radically reduce the size of plants and cost effectively deliver them to site pre-built introduced a range of high-risk engineering challenges. Safety could not be bought ‘off the shelf’. Multiple first-of-a-kind engineering projects would need to be successfully delivered for NuScale to gain regulatory approval and launch its SMR commercially.
Our experience, expertise and project methodology were core to giving NuScale a short cut to the right answers. This quality enabled NuScale to gain regulatory approval for a new model of nuclear power generation and bring it to market within a timeframe and cost that met the expectations of its investors.
Ultra Energy gave a further 10 years of operational life to over 350 individual instruments of 15 types that make up a critical safety system fitted to six reactors
Ultra Energy extended the life of a primary protection system by 15 years, removing the need for a wholescale system replacement and saving the operator tens of millions of dollars.
Ultra Energy's investigation and recovery programme improved equipment reliability and projected end of life of critical components by more than 10 years.
