Monitoring a next-generation power plant
Performance optimization for clients’ thermal power plants
Altran’s e-monitoring support services are designed to help customers optimize thermal power plant performance. These services include checking and analyzing performance indicators of thermal power plants, as well as gathering and interpreting temperature, pressure, output and vibration
data. Our multidisciplinary team ensured optimal service suited to the client’s specific needs, guaranteeing compliance of the project in terms of quality of deliverables and deadlines.
Boosting Operational Performance
BP estimates that improved drilling generates $200 million in savings
Deploying data analytics technology across a number of challenging wells has allowed BP to maximize drilling efficiency, saving an estimated $200 million in capital expenditure by reducing non-productive time.
BP’s experts have access to clear visualizations of vast quantities of real-time data, allowing them to spot potentially unsafe and costly issues before they happen.
Supporting specialized Spent Nuclear Fuel (SNF) storage systems
Engineering consultancy services to ensure compliance at all levels
Altran delivered engineering consultancy services to ensure compliance of SNF storage systems with regulatory requirements at the structural, thermal and shielding/criticality levels through it’s Global Delivery Center in India.
Altran ran various computer simulations and mathematical calcinations to verify that regulatory requirements are met, in terms of functional design and licensing. A dedicated team further performed nuclear radiation and criticality analyses, as well as thermal calculations,
structural/mechanical analyses and Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) assessments for SNF casks and related components.
Nuclear safety & design service center
Improve performance and efficiency for nuclear studies
Altran provides nuclear safety and core design services, leading studies on the existing fleet, new build and R&D projects for this global leader in Nuclear Energy.
These services are delivered in a flexible managed service model serving different sites. Backed by Altran’s Nuclear Engineering Expertise Center the team provides probabilistic and deterministic safety studies, neutronics, thermo-hydraulic simulations and calculations, while developing new tools to optimize the efficiency and the quality of delivery.
