The main focus of Energiforsk Nuclear Safety Related I&C, also called ENSRIC, in the years 2016 to 2018 will be to find cost- and time effective methods to extend the life time of the present analogue systems. A moderate estimation is that the investment cost for the renewal is in the order of 1 GSEK per reactor for F1-F3, R1-R2, O3 and OL1-OL2. Another focus area for the program is the asset management of the already installed digital platforms, finding time- and cost effective strategies for changes and updates.
ENSRIC will enable using international experience applied to a Nordic context, to assist the NPPs and authorities to take necessary decisions early in the process. It also constitutes an arena to discuss future I&C strategies for NPPs, authorities, researchers and vendors.
