The Skolkovo Foundation will provide a grant to Atomenergomash to implement a capacity monitoring system. The grant will cover 50% of the cost of the project, which is scheduled for 2020-2022.
The system involves real-time monitoring of the operation of the main process equipment, analysis of productivity and machine load, as well as notification of emergency situations.
As part of the ongoing digitalization of the plant, Atomenergomash will install special units and sensors on 400 key working machines. They will continuously take readings from equipment, record all events and statuses, accumulate collected data for automated analysis, with further forecasting and management based on the data. In the future, this will reduce the cycle of manufacture of products and optimize production.
The system is also potentially able to provide control over compliance with the production process, control telemetry parameters (temperature, pressure, load, vibration, etc.) in the performance of specific technological operations, to automate the preparation and control of production tasks, and, in general, is the first step towards further deep digitalization of production processes.
The project on implementation of this system has won the competition of projects on transformation of priority branches of economy and social sphere on the basis of introduction of domestic products, services and platform solutions created on the basis of through digital technologies within the framework of the national program Digital economy of the Russian Federation.
For reference: Atomenergomash - Machine Building Division of the State Atomic Energy Corporation Rosatom. The company fully controls the production chain of key equipment for the nuclear island and the engine room - from R&D and production of working documentation to process design and equipment manufacturing. The Division's equipment is installed in more than 20 countries, providing operation of 14% of the world's nuclear power plants and 40% of thermal power plants in Russia, CIS and Baltic countries.
