European energy giant EDF has selected InStep Software to provide predictive asset analytic software to monitor its entire nuclear fleet in France.
The world’s largest producer of nuclear power, EDF will use InStep’s PRiSM software for continuous real-time asset monitoring of the utility’s 58 nuclear reactors at 19 sites. The software will identify and alert personnel of subtle changes in equipment behavior to provide early indication and diagnosis of asset health and performance problems, according to a company press release. Since 2008, EDF has been using PRiSM to centrally monitor its TAC and has extended progressively to hydro and other fossil-fuel facilities.
