Solutions for Nuclear Energy
Linking global infrastructure to critical operations
Prysmian delivers a complete portfolio of superior nuclear cables for systems and components involved in the production of nuclear energy, including, medium-voltage, instrumentation, control, communication, fibre optic and cables for special radiation-monitoring equipment.
Quality and performance guaranteed:
A wide range of state of-the art cables for existing and new power stations
Designed and third party approved solutions in accordance to main environmental standards and design requirements
- Performance and reliability over time (up to 60 years)
Empowering the nuclear industry
Within the portfolio of power generation, nuclear power demands nothing short of flawless technological excellence. Utilities of nuclear power plants all over the world require an abundance of on-hand technology and every component must, therefore, work perfectly and consistently, to guarantee continuous and safe power generation in harsh and challenging environments. Nowhere is this more evident than inside the ‘sarcophagus’ that contains the reactor. Here the safety requirements are far stricter than in any other part of the plant and components must undergo independent third-party scrutiny before being installed.
Critical to this operation is proven resilience to:
Thermal ageing at high environmental temperature for at least 60 years
Nuclear (gamma and beta) radiation
High pressure and hot temperatures in accident conditions (LOCA)
Chemical agents in accident conditions (LOCA)
Fire propagation, electrical fault and oil aggressiveness
Prysmian nuclear cables, including tailor-made designs such as AP1000, EPR and VVER have been specially developed to withstand every stress that comes with environments inside nuclear power plants. Our nuclear cables rely on dedicated certification as well as Nuclear Quality Assurance supervision to live up to the high expectations for safety and reliability of the worldwide market.
