Rolls-Royce and Analysis and Measurement Services Corporation (AMS) have signed a partnership agreement to provide advanced Instrumentation and Control (I&C) system testing services to the global nuclear energy market.
As part of the “PULSE” offer developed by Rolls-Royce, a comprehensive range of services will be provided by the two companies dedicated to monitoring the performance and health of safety I&C components (neutron detectors, pressure transmitters, temperature probes, cables and connections).
Eric Blanc, President Rolls-Royce Civil Nuclear France, said: “For more than 50 years, Rolls-Royce has been at the forefront of safeguarding more than half of the world’s nuclear power plants through the I&C solutions and technologies delivered to our customers.
“Supporting them in the long-term with high added-value services has always been the priority of Rolls-Royce. The establishment of this partnership with AMS will allow us to bring complementary predictive maintenance solutions to our customers, and thus improve the performance and reliability of their nuclear facilities.”
Dr. H.M. HASHEMIAN, AMS President, said: “We are truly honoured to partner with Rolls-Royce to bring our respective expertise, experience, and capabilities in the I&C field to support nuclear power plants operating worldwide. AMS has been in business for over 40 years serving all the nuclear power plants in the United States and many in Europe and Asia. AMS’ partnership with Rolls-Royce will add a significant new dimension to AMS’ worldwide footprint.”
Rolls-Royce designs, manufactures and ensures the long-term support of safety I&C solutions for civil nuclear reactors worldwide, from its centre of excellence based in Grenoble, France.
AMS is a recognized market leader in providing the worldwide nuclear power industry with equipment, training, and services to verify the performance of process I&C systems.
