WesDyne, a subsidiary of Westinghouse Electric Co., was awarded a six-year contract for reactor pressure vessel nozzle inspections at the Leibstadt Nuclear Power Plant (KKL) in Switzerland.
The scope of work includes qualification of the KKL mechanized ultrasonic inspection system using a state-of-the-art phased array technique and yearly inspections of eight different nozzle types – 56 total – with each nozzle having up to three welds. A total of 127 welds will be inspected over the six-year timeframe. Westinghouse has been performing these inspections at KKL for the past ten years.
The work will be executed primarily out of Westinghouse’s facility in Mannheim and supported by an international team of experts from WesDyne.
