Reactor pressure vessel heads
Although there is no immediate need to replace the reactor pressure vessel heads in the two blocks, experience in similar plants indicates that the increasing age of the covers can have a negative impact on plant availability. The investment decision, which Axpo made in 2008, is an entrepreneurial one. The new components will also increase the already high safety level of the plant.
Power supply system
With its commissioning, the new system will provide an addi-tional earthquake and flood-proof emergency power supply and replace the emergency power supply system of the Beznau hydropower plant. Two bunkered buildings, which include aircraft crash protection, house four high-performance diesel engines including auxiliary systems and infrastructure for an autarkic period of seven days at full-load operation.
Plant information system
With the replacement of the existing plant information system, Axpo is ensuring the functioning of this extensive system for further years of operation. The new system uses state-of-the-art hardware and software.
